Discover GABRIELA HEARST Fall Winter 2021.22 Collection, that was inspired by a nun, composer, poet, philosopher, mystic, linguist, botanist, and medical theorist Saint Hildegard of Bingen, presented on Thursday, February 18th, during the ongoing New York Fashion Week. Saint Hildegard of Bingen was an extraordinary woman who believed in green power of nature, she applied the renaissance principles of Art and Science centuries before this period started, and her Universal Man predates Leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian by some 300 years.

Science and Art were the constant threads in her multidisciplinary existence. The ongoing interplay of the human being as microcosm — both physically and spiritually — with the macrocosm of the universe informed her approach. This extends from the visual to the musical: from the medical power of her flowers to her better renowned compositions of sacred monophony. In art, healing, strength and power could be found. She challenged the popes and the structures around her, with the courage that comes from those connected to the collectiveness of our consciousness. Where Apathy doesn’t exist and “Awake” is the state. There is hope that comes from the voice of a woman who, nearly a millenia before us, believed that humanity would realize that the true face of God is compassion.

As I was studying Hildegard, I noticed my 12-year-old daughter’s flowers in her art book. She had been looking at true specimens in nature and replicating them. I was so impressed by their beauty of them and the fact that she was finding inspiration in nature. Her flowers became our prints, which were then also knitted and crocheted with the two non-for-profit women empowering co-ops we work with in Uruguay and Bolivia. They also became the design for engineering our Swiss lace and leather macramé.” – from Gabriela Hearst
