Kalissi is a luxury Ready-to-wear womenswear brand based between Vienna and London.
The designs boast a garish and extroverted style that is sure to stand out and set itself apart from current contemporary fashion offerings, using bold colours and contemporary shapes to pay tribute to a quasi-retro look without appearing dated.
Utilising non-conventional fabrics and clashing palettes, her work combines new-wave demi-couture tailoring with surprising and humorous details, resulting in commercial but unique womenswear.
Kalissi’s confidence regarding the choice of fabrics and design comes from a background in textile and graphic design. Furthermore, sustainability and fair production are of big importance to Kalissi with clothes and accessories designed and handcrafted predominantly in Austria alongside specially selected ethical producers.
The designer Christina Hrdlicka has spent the last 5 years working in advertising, visual identities, fashion photography and graphic design with well-known clients and agencies in the field. She gained an in-depth experience within the industry, focussing on conceptual art direction. This eclectic mix of creative roles has enabled her to develop the trademark aesthetic for Kalissi. The confident fabrics and playful details stem from this unique background in textiles and graphic design.
Kalissi is focused on providing a complete outfit which keeps the customer from having to search elsewhere for matching items, in-turn making them loyal to the brand. The combination of quality materials, perfect fit, and unique design gives Kalissi its signature look.
