What started in 1981 as a small collective of artists and designers inspired by the burgeoning punk scene in Arnhem, the Netherlands, has evolved into the international fashion brand Humanoid. Yet 35 years later, the Dutch brand started by Sandra Harmsen and Hans Boelens still retains its feisty, expressive, authentically outside-the-box appeal. Humanoid’s hallmark distressed finishes and irreverent patterns adorn luxe, high-quality natural fabrics that are masterfully draped. Each piece in their collections starts out as a prototype handmade by one of their designers which is then test-driven, worn and washed, so that details can be customized and any kinks smoothed out before the garment is produced. The result is quality clothing for grown ups infused with a nostalgic hint of that punky, DIY aesthetic.
