Gily Ilan

 
Accessories designer, Gily Ilan, interweaves textiles and ceramics for one-of-a-kind pieces 
 
Gily Ilan is not only a talented craftswoman, but she also takes great care in work, hand-crafting artisan necklaces and scarves in her Tel Aviv studio. Gily combines her expertise in ceramic design (having earned a BFA in Ceramic Design from the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design) with a love of textiles, ending up with accessories formed from a special knitting technique in various fabrics bound by magnetic porcelain clasps. The juxtaposition of the two materials makes for a show-stopping piece, yet one which is extremely wearable, not to mention practical.

The scarves are available in an oversized, chunky knit for winter, velvet knit for an evening out, and a lighter knit for milder climates (she’s got the bipolar Israeli winter weather covered on all fronts). The necklaces are bold - the perfect, modern finish to a LBD, to sit atop a shirt dress, or simply to add a touch of style to a jeans and tee combo. Whilst they command attention, Gily’s works are overwhelmingly “cool,” the muted colors and clean design offering a minimalist aesthetic.

Minimalist designs to suit and body type

Hoko is a stylish line of everyday staples designed by Israeli fashion designer Hagit Hazan. Born in Jerusalem, the designer is now based in Tel Aviv where she conceives and produces her timeless, mostly monochromatic designs. While there’s an androgynous feel to many of her loose silhouettes, all of the collection’s pieces have understated, feminine details like small back cut-outs, pleats, long zippers, or cowl necks. Minimalist, clean-lined, and flattering for a wide range of body types, Hazan – who founded her brand in 2007 after graduating from Bezalel Academy in Jerusalem and a fashion design course at Parsons in New York – is continuously growing her repertoire, which is very reflective of Tel Aviv’s fashion sensibilities. Like her fellow Israeli ready-to-wear designers (think Sharon Brunsher), Hoko is rooted in casual sophistication with easy silhouettes to take women from day to night – no matter how hot temperatures get. In fact, aside from her pieces working just as seamlessly with heels as they do with a pair of flats or sneakers, fabrics are meticulously chosen to be breathable and comfortable on the skin.
