Black Merino

THISISNON x CJ Heyliger

Reinforced by the allure of original work of CJ Heyliger, here is THISISNON – they craft clothes entirely in Poland, with full respect for human rights and the environment. For those in favor of long-lasting pieces of clothing and finely composed photography, this is something you might not want to miss.

THISISNON's lettres de noblesse reside in the way they design beautiful pieces echoing with the timelessness and the purity of nature. Soft contrasts with hard, fluidity breaks rigidity, short and lengths collide - the pieces have no unique limit, infinity is their limit. The label endeavors to create pieces of clothing that are made free of fashion and trends.

Attention to detail is key - the designers take it to heart when selecting essential elements used to construct minimal and pared-back shapes. Purity is taken to a whole new level here as the Black Merino Collection uses fine merino wool, a breed of sheep prized for its body warming and natural properties (hypoallergenic, keeps moisture away from skin). "We believe that buying less and seeking quality rises respect for human work and planet resources,” stated THISISNON, “We dedicate our work to people interested in ideas rather than trends, who find beauty in simplicity, as we insistently do."

Enriched by CJ Heyliger's touch, the collection is taken to greater heights. By re-exploring the notion of discovery, Heyliger builds a strong and vivid imagery that merges with the beautiful silence breathed into the Black Merino collection. Deserted landscapes, still lives of sand and dry elements renew the conceptual nature of his projects. In his photographs are gathered symbols of simplicity and aesthetic restraint, thus arranging raw materials around a new narrative. Here, the combination of images honors THISISNON garments, forming a cohesive whole - as objects and places are given a whole new perspective, new sartorial stories are rising.
