The label Dorhout Mees was founded in 2010 by Dutch designer Esther Louise Dorhout Mees. She graduated from ArtEz Academy of Arts in Arnhem, Netherlands before working as a designer for established labels Bruuns Bazaar and Tommy Hilfiger. In 2010, she decided it was time to start her own label. Dorhout Mees is distinctive for its elegant but wearable style. Her garments are feminine and conceptual. Organic forms contrast structural shapes. Her collections always take form in a mixture of rich prints, silk, wool and delicate knits; punctuated by wearable but unconventional materials. The starting point of every collection is the connection between body and material and covering versus uncovering of the female body. Contradictions in structures, silhouettes and textures have become signatures of her collections.
