How was LeMuse born?
LeMuse sustainable fashion brand was born 10 years ago. It all started when we became inspired to create comfortable and perfectly fitting clothes that are of minimalist design and come from natural origins. We hold on to the belief that clothing should help you be your gorgeous self and feel pleasant at the same time. In such a manner, LeMuse started out with non-traditional cut designs, the clothing that would easily shift shapes in accordance with the movement of a person wearing the garments. Here in LeMuse we care a lot about our environment, the people and our beautiful planet Earth. This is why we only work with natural fabrics. Our production is organized and managed in Lithuania, Europe and we are continuously collaborating with the local tailor shops. Over the course of time, LeMuse became well-known in Lithuania and abroad. Our clients share the same values as our brand: sustainability, caring about the planet and fair trade.
What does it mean LeMuse?
LeMuse holds the meaning of the MUSE. We believe that every woman is a charismatic muse in her own ways. Your inner muse hides only when you experience stress or anguish. Because LeMuse clothing is made from natural fabrics and is not only beautiful but very cozy and comfortable as well, you suddenly stop thinking about the way you look by letting go of any insecurities (you look amazing nevertheless) and let your charms (your muse) free and out to the world. LeMuse garments have a serious purpose of making you feel a real and a beautiful muse despite the flaws that you might think you have, at the end of the day, we all are unique humans that have rich inner worlds. LeMuse clothes cover your body in a way that the garment changes its shape every time you move. As a result of a changing shape, different silhouettes are being created. LeMuse wants you to feel free and unbothered. You don’t have to spend a lot of time thinking about your looks and wondering if your body is perfect enough. The clothes that we create are intended to help you feel carefree and wearing them might inspire you to meditate on your feelings or emotions instead of concentrating on the outside. LeMuse - inspire your inner MUSE.
Lina is the founder of LeMuse fashion brand. She is very passionate about clothes that are flawlessly fitting, minimalist, long-lasting and natural. Lina’s grandmother was a designer herself, and she used to work in the main design house of Lithuania, which used to produce designs for all the clothing factories in the Baltic states. During her childhood, Lina spent a lot of time with her grandmother and started to learn how to create the patterns and how to design the clothing from her. The favourite fabric of Lina has always been linen (maybe because the name Lina in Lithuanian has the meaning of linen). Furthermore, linen is also a very important part of Lithuanian and Baltic heritage. Today LeMuse is a family business, run by Lina and her husband Kazimieras.
In a distinguishable Nordic and Baltic style, we create minimalistic designs defined by their simplicity. We do not bother to run after the latest trends: instead, we prefer classical and elegant styles that look marvellous every season and never go out of fashion. Many of our designs are of a non-traditional cut, so that LeMuse clothes, a dress, a blouse or a cardigan, adjust to different body lines and hide all imperfections. Also, to give each design a bit of a twist we add a little detail to spice it up: a bow on the shoulder, buttons on the back, an elegant neckline.
We believe that clothes should be long-lasting and that natural fabrics are a must. One of our best choices is linen, a perfect material for all seasons, especially the summertime. We are proud to use locally produced Lithuanian linen for the reason that it allows us to make sure that the quality of the material is perfect: it feels nice and cozy on the skin, is very breathable and durable – a linen dress can be your best friend for many years. For the cold season, we recommend the fabulous wool, the way it brings comfort and warmth is almost magical. One wool sweater is enough to save you from unbearably cold winters. For versatility and comfort, we also recommend cotton. If you have a capsule wardrobe, it is important for its pieces to be made from natural fabrics. These items will last long and bring you joy every single day.
We are proud to support our community: all LeMuse clothes are produced here in Lithuania. We choose small production houses of 2-3 people with more than 30 years of experience in sewing linen, wool and cotton clothing exclusively for LeMuse. We support these studios from the beginning. From time to time we start working with new tailor shops as our brand is already 10 years old. They grow with us and have the same beliefs and goals: sustainability, perfection, fair trade and natural clothing.
Made to order
LeMuse has been a sustainable fashion brand from the beginning. We care a lot about the environment: this is why made-to-order is a priority, as it allows us to save resources and to make sure that nothing gets wasted. Also, it allows us to customize each item for the person. We know that clients have to wait a bit to get the order but they can be sure that their dress is made personally for them. Our clothes can be made according to their wish – we will adjust the measurements, so that their dress, blouse, trousers or cardigan would fit perfectly. LeMuse brand creates sustainable, long lasting clothes which can join every woman’s capsule wardrobe and bring comfort and beauty everyday.
