Cecilie Bahnsen reflects on finding couture in the everyday, influenced by the individuality of women around her and growing brand admirers.
The new collection emphasizes the concept of not saving clothes “for best” but wearing them and giving new life to the traditions of couture. As part of the season’s reflection on couture for every day, Cecilie collaborates with sneaker brand ASICS, customising past season stock to create one of a kind pairs.
Spring/Summer 2023 is a season of light, airy silhouettes created off-the-page: on models and mannequins, rather than drawn and translated into 3D. The colour palette of the collection – a Scandinavian core of black and white – continues to expand with bursts of pale apple green, soft lavender and bright accents of blue. For this season, Cecilie adds denim and t-shirts alongside her line-up of signature bespoke luxury fabrics, adding subtle masculine counterpoint to her hyper-feminine dresses.
Founder & Creative Director, Cecilie Bahnsen says:
“I’ve been thinking a lot this season about how the girls in the studio and our community wear our clothes. How they might put on a dress on a rainy Tuesday morning to feel good, or go to a party on a Saturday night. I grew up dreaming of Paris and couture, but it was always something fancy, not for real life. I love the idea that I’m able to create something precious for every day.”
