Meet Our Designers: HANNAHby Anna Kopito | 29.09.14
Many contemporary womenswear brands are beginning to combine female softness and shape with the sharp tailoring of menswear. Here we have a brand which can’t help but do so – the creative brainchild of married couple and designers Nir and Rotem Goeta, HANNAH. Using their own innovative techniques and materials, the Goetas are pushing androgyny to new levels. Using particularly aesthetic fabrics, HANNAH pushes boundaries and presents an all together new look for women looking for more edge in their wear.
