collection philos

the new le.sens spring/ summer 17 collection is named after the ancient greek word for friend or lover and each piece is named with the word for ‘friend’ in a different language.

the pieces of the collection philos follow this leitmotif by inherently celebrating the friendship and love of all the people involved in its creation, production and presentation. but more than that, the motto and inspiration of love and friendship was also developed throughout the new designs that are built around new and exciting aesthetic liaisons and delicate emotional surprises.

speaking of which: collection philos is proudly presenting le.sens’ first line of clothing alongside with new scarf designs. this might as well be ‘the beginning of another beautiful friendship’.

needles to say, that all new pieces - garments and scarves - are hand made in hamburg/ germany following le.sens philosophy of unique design, superior artisan craftsmanship, finest italian fabrics and dedication to quality and ecology.

“If you haven’t learned the meaning of friendship, 
you really have not learned anything!”

Muhammad Ali

le.sens was founded in hamburg, germany by designer leonie sens. the product philosophy behind le.sens is driven by both an unique artistic vision and the aim to create and produce pieces that are setting standards for design, quality and craftsmanship. the designs of the le.sens collections are pushing the limits and re-defining the concepts of traditional scarf design. they are colorful and inspiring in a fresh and unique way while at the same time very organic and textile. every design starts as a meticulous hand drawing and is then taken through a careful manufacturing process in le.sens‘ own hamburg based workshops. le.sens accessories are made from a selection of highest quality fabrics that are exclusively provided by world leading italian mills. the variety of the natural-fibers-only materials includes finest cashmere, cashmere-silk, merino wool, linen, silk-cotton and cotton-voile fabrics. all pieces are individually made on order by employing the traditional artisan craft of screen printing in combination with eco-friendly water based colors. no harmful solvents are used in this process. every piece is finally sewn, washed and finished by hand. each le.sens piece is like a poetic storyboard inspired by the philosophy ‘that everything you can think of is true...’. every narrative has it’s own ecology and follows it’s own rules. the collections are a design work in progress and not following short living trends. every new collection builds on the previous ones and therefore every new season the past collection stays available for order. the present collections evolve from the aesthetic concepts that have been established in the previous ones: such as the exploration of proximity and scale or the investigation of visual imagination. le.sens accessories are available at leading retailers around the globe.
designer leonie sens has developed an individual language and iconography that is evident in every collection, yet every collection creates a new and sublime imaginary microcosmos around its own poetic story board.
