The inviting structure, reminiscent of blackberries or orange peel
The fine yet sturdy virgin sheep’s wool fabric Vidar was originally designed by Fanny Aronsen and reinterpreted by Raf Simons with elegant shades. The slightly velvety surface sheen of the textile woven from bouclé yarn offers a beautiful contrast to the dark tones in the depth, so that the intense colors are particularly well accentuated. Haptically, the fabric convinces with a pleasant softness and a unique structure that reawakens memories of blackberries, orange peel or the favorite tightly woven sweater from childhood days. Due to the many natural properties of virgin sheep’s wool, Vidar is ideally suited for our strollers: The fabric has a temperature-balancing and moisture-regulating effect all year round. In winter it keeps warm and in summer it provides a pleasantly fresh indoor climate. The inherently antibacterial wool is self-cleaning, so dirt can simply be brushed off after drying.

Designers: Raf Simons, Fanny Aronsen
Although Raf Simons actually comes from industrial design and also graduated in this field in 1991, he underwent a radical change in 1995. He became a self-taught menswear designer, founded his eponymous label, and went on to an impressive career: Simons became a professor in the Fashion Department of the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, Creative Director of Jil Sander (menswear and womenswear), and then Artistic Director at Christian Dior for women’s haute couture and ready-to-wear clothing and accessories collections. From 2016 to the end of 2018, he was Chief Creative Officer of the American fashion label Calvin Klein, and since 2020 he has formed the creative direction with Miuccia Prada at the Italian label of the same name.
