“Our vegan leather is kinder to the environment than animal leather, and it’s easy to work — it has the perfect texture for us to create our envisioned designs.” These signature designs include the Hide puffer jacket and a line of striking dresses. Natural materials such as silk and soft wool are also used in notable pieces such as the oversized, tailored Alamo robe coats.
When it comes to cut, Nanushka’s self-described “new informal form of beauty” translates to effortless chic and confident ease. As Sandor puts it, “If a garment is designed to function well it will by definition be beautiful. The clothes that we’ll keep loving and will become our wardrobe staples are those in which we really feel comfortable.”
Sandor is located in her native Budapest, an unusual location for a fashion brand, and the city’s aesthetic is woven throughout her collections. “Budapest has always been an intersection between East and West. This duality has formed our culture, personality, aesthetics and my perception as a designer,” she says. “I design for the modern human — she’s respectful to other cultures, cherishes the planet and is deeply confident in her femininity.”
