The formers: meet-up with designers from previous fashion contests

Peeter Ilison [Marit Ilison]

Peeter is the other half of the Estonian brand Marit Ilison, that mixes deep concepts with feelings and eye-catching form. Together with his sister Marit he has set up the brand which captures the essences of heritage. With the “Longing for Sleep” collection they focus on recreating the feeling of dark winter days where you wrap yourself in a blanket all day long. Marit has created a collection using colourful and patterned woollen vintage Soviet wool blankets.

All the coats are handmade in their atelier in Tallinn (Estonia) where they work together with highly skilled artisans and it takes roughly a week to produce one coat. Each item is then labelled with a certificate stating the origin, sequence number and the names of the people who have been personally involved in making of the piece.
