Hul le Kes
The Nureyev is one of Hul le Kes’ first designs. Inspired by a classic worker’s coat made by hand with antique French linen. Its colour is the result of a natural hand dyeing process. Each coat will come out different, the print on the pictures is an indication of how it will look like but no one will ever become the same. That is the beauty of hand dyeing with natural materials.
Some of these coats will still bear the initials of the linen’s original owner, embroidered there a century ago.
Made to order helps us create only the items we need. It’s a benefit for you, us and the environment.
Like most Hul le Kes items this coat comes with its own registration number as well as a Hul le Kes passport.
" Technique is what you fall back on when you run out
Rudolf Nureyev (1938 -1993) is widely regarded as one of the best ballet dancers in his time. Nureyev famously defected from the Soviet Union to France, where he eventually was appointed director of the Paris Opera Ballet. Nureyev’s seemingly endless drive and pleasure for creation made us name this piece after him.
At Hul le Kes we do not want to focus on a particular gender. Therefore, we work with our own size chart. Our sizes range from 1 to 4. When a garment is a one size fits all, it’s sized as A. For our Basquiat jacket you can choose the following sizes corresponding with the chart below. 1, 2, 3.
