Edition 03. Summer by Alex and Trahanas
Alexandra Heard and Heleena Trahanas are the duo behind lifestyle project, Alex and Trahanas, and have recently launched their third ready-to-wear collection. Celebrated through curated fashion and selected decorative pieces, Edition 03. Summer is a six-piece collection designed to take women from day to night wear with ease. A selection of elegant and understated garments that come together to form an effortless wardrobe, the line is comprised of t-shirts, shirts, dresses and tailored shorts – reminiscent of classic European summer dressing.
In a Mediterranean palette of white and navy, each piece is constructed from an aloe vera infused linen – the first material of its kind to be used in Australian fashion.
Alexandra and Heleena, who work exclusively with Solbiati, one of the world’s most prestigious linen mills, chose the fabric for its ability to maintain the sophisticated qualities found in regular linens with unusual softness and less creasing.
To complement this edition, the design duo has also released their first-ever collaboration – a beautiful series of jewellery pieces with Louise Olsen of Dinosaur Designs, a long-time friend and colleague of Heleena’s.
Inspired by the organic forms of Apulian olive trees and the curve of their leaves, the gentle wrapping and hanging of the wrist and ear wear perfectly offsets the boyish aesthetic of the Edition 03. Summer’s garments.
