Indress was created in 2001 by Dutch fashion designer Wies Schulte, a graduate of the Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts. With its natural, timeless clothes, Indress strives to steer away from mainstream trends and in doing so, creates incredibly trendy pieces. And all the inimitable knitwear from the Indress collection is 100% made in France! Since its very birth, with its ultra-feminine and elegant clothes, Indress has chosen to make originality rhyme with outstanding quality.
5 questions to the designer
Who are you?
I am Wies Schulte, a Paris-based Dutch stylist.
Give us 3 words that describe your universe.
Elegant, chic and free from fashion’s diktats.
Where do you get your inspiration?
In the work of photographers such as William Eggleston or Mitch Epstein and women such as Romy Schneider and Lauren Bacall.
Where do you make your products?
In France, at Euromaille, a family-owned knitting company based in Valence, and at the Ateliers des Boissiers.
“Made in France”: why that choice?
Because production standards are better here, because I can easily go and do quality checks myself and because I like to know that the people who make my clothes are paid decently. My silk fabrics are made by Denis et Fils, a French company; the dyeing station operates its own waste treatment facilities and only uses products that are Oeko-Tex-Standard-100 certified.
(Oeko-Tex is the first certification system that guarantees that textiles are free of harmful substances and were made in environmentally friendly production facilities – ed.)
