Hi, my name is Liene. I am a sportswear designer, conceptional thinker and outdoor lover.

AW15/16 Arete

is a collection for travelling.

Being flexible and remaining open to the world – what does this mean for clothing?

It is raining. The earth is recovering. Breathing intensely and deeply, as if it were the first air we’ve had in a long time. The resources we consume every day, the wars, the blood, the drunks, and those who want to forget it all but can’t. We have achieved something technologically, but just as much has gone wrong. We are in search of the pure and recognisable. The future offers us the unique opportunity to become better and leave the mistakes of the past behind.

Can we forgive ourselves? To be at peace with ourselves again?

arete – a collection that offers rebirth, that seeks new paths for humanity, combining purity and technology. The aim is to emphasise the outstanding quality and high value of a product.

The functionality of the product and the efficiency of production play an important role. However, the human being still remains with the natural origin. We are the way we are, that is a fact.
