A silhouette with puffy sleeves, volume, and playful proportions seems to be trending but not so much for the Scandinavian gals that have been embracing this timeless style with unconventional twists. I find this particular aesthetic to be very feminine, fun, and maybe a bit on the man repeller side of things. It is sexy in a not so obvious form fitting way.
One of the best examples that I have been mildly obsessed with comes from Copenhagen based designer, Cecilie Bahnsen. She is creating beautiful garments that blend couture and ready to wear. Handmade with a unique range of fabrics and traditional techniques.
I stumbled upon this label two years ago and have been following ever sense. The designer’s whimsical aesthetic is refreshing, light, and wearable. An attention to detail that the Scandinavians are known for is seen in every collection Cecilie has been delivering since 2015.
Brace yourself because the architectural, voluminous, yet minimal relaxed pieces come at a luxury cost. Watch for sales! If you appreciate this label, wear it with no thought, no fuss along with trainers or Teva like sandals. Hair up, hair down, keep it natural.
