The design process - words from the founder and designer

Posted by Malin Helenius on

When designing CALISS garments, there are three pillars that are always in focus:

Easiness in wearing the clothes

What do I really mean by this? In my view, you should not have to worry about the garment when you are wearing them. This could be wrinkles, how it moves on your body and how it feels wearing it. A lot of effort is put into the selection of the fabrics in order to offer the highest of quality to the best price.

Easy care

I try to only use fabrics that are water washable. The blazers of course will require dry cleaning but that is only due to the construction and not the fabrics. When you wash our garments, please avoid spinning and hang them soaking wet. This will increase the life time of the fabric but will also reduce the wrinkles when washing.

Elevated design

It could be the fabric or the model but I belive there should always be something special about each garment. I don't believe in "basics". Even classic models and wardrobe "basics" should have an interesting spin making each garment special. Basic sounds so boring - who wants to be basic when we are all special!

I personally love the Luna dress, it is so timeless and special with the feather details on the trumpet sleeves. On picture lovely Therese wearing the Luna dress in ballet for a wedding in Stockholm.
