Meet Anina Heé, the Designer Behind Fashion Brand Refine

Between emails that land in my inbox, photos from my Instagram feed that earn screenshots, and market previews I’m attending, I’m constantly introduced to new fashion brands. But it’s only every so often a new label comes around that I can’t wait to get my hands on and immediately want to share with everyone. Right now, it’s Refine, a brand founded by Net-a-Porter alum Anina Heé that is focused on creating timeless pieces you’ll have in your closet for years to come.

Instead of designing trend-driven items, Heé sought out to craft pieces centered on high-quality craftsmanship that women could plan to keep in their closets beyond a season. For her first collection, she was inspired by the ’90s slip silhouette, which she aimed to perfect. Interested to find more about the brand, I spoke with Heé. Go on to read the interview, see how women are wearing the Refine collection (including yours truly), and shop pieces from the brand.
