Hästens’ passion is timeless quality, an experience transcending any clock. The passion of haute couture designer Lars Nilsson is to be constantly at the forefront of fashion. We meet as masters of our respective crafts and great admirers of the talents of the other.
Ever since moving to Paris aged just 18, Swedish born Lars Nilsson has been taking the world of haute couture by storm. Mentored by the industry’s most iconic names, he has designed award-winning collections for elite fashion houses, created for one of the most classic Swedish interior design brands and even launched his own men’s fashion line, Mr. Nils.
Nilsson’s sharp eye has long been fascinated by Hästens’ blue-check pattern. So, of course, this distinct design was the starting point when Lars and Hästens fabric experts began their bed linen collaboration.
The result? Outstanding patterns, originated by hand; pencil, watercolor, crayon and gouache making for free-flowing personal expression. Inspiration was taken from the abundance of iris flowers in the many classic English gardens Lars visited during the design process.
Rather like Nilsson’s design, the fabric for the Iris collection is of the utmost quality. Light and deliciously airy, this cotton satin falls gently on the body — and fills your bedroom with well-composed colors of joy.
