Have A Rest has already been featured in the pages of Hype&Hyper: founder Alina Dolinina was inspired by her passion for travel to start the brand, which is known for its innovative smart suitcases and bold colors. The brand has collaborated with Ukrainian designers before; this time they teamed up with J’amemme demi-couture, a brand inspired by quirky architectural silhouettes, to create a new clothing collection.
The collection’s pieces, made from colorful, soft, and lightweight pressed cotton, are named Vilna (meaning freedom): the relaxed silhouette of each piece makes them all a comfortable wear for travel. The collection features a choice of oversized blazers, shirts, crop tops, short and long trousers, and a bag.
In response to the current Russian-Ukrainian war, Julie Yarmoliuk and Alina Dolinina have sought to create a collection with added value: the designers will donate 10% of the proceeds from the collaboration’s pieces to the Masha Foundation, a charity that cares for women, children, and the elderly. The Vilna collection is available in both the J’amemme and Have A Rest online stores.
