S&E norway&denmark* Wackerhaus was founded in 2003 by the young Danish designer Trine Wackerhausen. The Wackerhaus look combines a sharp tailored silhouette with lightweight materials and carefully placed ruffles, deftly playing upon the theme of contrasts, evident in each signature collection.
Entitled ‘Wonders in Winterland’ Wackerhaus’ AW11 collection successfully channels themes of opulence and fragility, looking particularly at the lines of cuts and fragmentation. Inspired by icicles, crystals and glacial sleet, the collection exudes a dangerous and cool innocence evident in the fierce graphic detailing and sharp pleats, which are fused with coated shiny sheers for maximum effect. Clearly inspired by its Danish origins, Wackerhau’s AW11 offering featuring a dazzling array of cocktail dresses, emblematic trousers, coats and dress jackets, the clean fabrics and superior detailing allow for an interactive play between soft fabrics, graphic lines and structured fur inspired patterns. A somewhat avant-garde offering, the colour palette and fabric juxtaposition is clean and simple with discreet dull blue denims, sand washed silky tencel in grey and renegade nubuck leathers each being lifted by subtle nuances of pinky browns and grey blues. www.wackerhaus.dk
