DESIGNER NAME: Alexia Hentsch
BACKGROUND: Alexia is half Swiss, half Brazilian. She studied graphic design at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in the US, and her first and only other job was working for Tyler Brûlé at Wallpaper Magazine and then his branding agency, Winkreative.
SIGNATURES: “I'd say bright colour.”
TRADEMARK PIECE: “Our printed shirts have definitely become our trademark lately!”
THE COLLECTION: “While travelling in South America over Christmas I started work on the SS15 collection; which became hugely influential. The collection is heavily tropical and the colour pallet draws reference from the sun-bleached walls of run-down neighborhoods. There is a high brow/low brow theme that runs throughout: dirty and decaying versus polish and bling - very Latin America. The collection feels summery and fresh - true to the Hentsch Man style.”
