Comfy Elegance: Bodkin's Eviana Hartman's New Collection for Hessnatur

Ecofashion designer Eviana Hartman was generous enough to take me through her capsule collection for Hessnatur, now available online.

Whether you want to call it classic, travel-ready, or just plain fiscally responsible, choosing clothes that will last you for years is the smart (and ecofriendly) way to dress. German label Hessnatur specializes in basics made with high quality fabrics, all of which are sustainably grown and/or produced by people who are paid a fair wage.

They relaunched the brand a couple years back when they brought reknowned designer Miguel Adrover on as lead designer, and now they’ve gotten Eviana Hartman, who designs her own line, Bodkin , to create a collection-within-a-collection for them for Autumn, 2010 (and moving into the future). Check out the video above for a close look at the collection, shown by Eviana.


The very versatile silk/cotton/cashmere long sweater is supersoft and can be wrapped and layered every which way from Autumn through late Spring.


The organic cotton patch leggings lend a bit of structure and style to this basic that we all never knew we couldn’t live without. These would look fantastic with a classic brown riding boot.


The cashmere slouch hat, which was featured in the September issue of Vogue. She told the magazine, “When you wear something November to March, it has to add a touch of cool to every outfit.” Indeed.
