At just 29 years old, Alix Petit, a self-proclaimed fashion outsider, creates and develops all patterns and fabrics for the clothing lines at Heimstone. She created her first fashion line, “Heim,” in 2006 and in the fall of 2007 Alix opened her first of two Heimstone shops in Paris. Heimstone boutiques are currently located on either side of the Seine, in the sixth and first arrondissements. With an education in art and textiles and a flair for travel, Petit has a unique and eccentric style that seamlessly translates to Heimstone’s clientele. The uninhibited and the assumed, the traveler and the homebody, the Parisian and the foreigner; this store is effortlessly a chameleon, adaptable to each personality a woman might possess. Never without her inspirational travelogue, Petit designs each line with colorful fabrics, beautiful designs and mix-matched textures pulling from worldly sights and memories. Apparel such as elegant dresses or rocker-chic leather vests found on the hangers at Heimstone are sometimes the results of collaborations with talented Italian and French designers. All products in the stores are manufactured in France or the rest of Europe while much of the rustic interior decor found inside the shops comes from the US.  Show lessRead more
