HEVN offers Norway’s biggest selection of black avant-garde designer pieces for men and women. The store owners curate every piece individually to give their customers the best of what they like to call NORDIC NOIR: clean, raw sophisticated individualism. The store is a small, family-owned boutique with a strict avant-garde aesthetic. HEVN is curated in pursuit of the beautiful, special, raw, and elegant, with the best avant-garde designers from all over the world. Mostly in a monochrome palette. HEVN was founded in 2013 by Maia and Knut, and we opened the doors to our first shop on February 26, 2014. The owners are more interested in fabrics, structure, texture, and cuts than by colors or patterns because it builds depth.
At HEVN pride is taken in finding designers with a clear focus on sustainable and ethical production. Where possible, all leather will be 100% bi-products from the food industry or wastage of commercial material. The designers stocked at the boutique have their collections made in the EU, Japan or Bali, Indonesia. Everything is made in workplaces that protect their employees’ health and safety and basic human rights.
The shop is located in the downtown area of Oslo, between Grünerløkka and Karl Johans gate, in an area with lots of great bars, restaurants, and specialty shops. The shop is approx a 6-7 minutes walk from the Oslo Central Station. The closest public transport stop is Hausmanns gate, which is a 2-minute walk from the shop.
