É L A N
Green paisley cotton was purchased by Mavis Lewandowska in the late 60’s, and its hot pink lining was acquired by Lisa Lewandowska (her daughter) 20 years later. 30 years later, they were brought together with a handmade woven straw hat, created by the third Lewandowska generation in 2019. Through the passing of time, the passions of our elders can influence our choices, creating our heritage. This inspired ‘Élan’.
It understands our history and its elegance, where its energy came from, and how it can be repurposed for a current moment. It is never stationary, but forever evolving.
