NÜ DENMARK


WHY?

BRAND CONCEPT NÜ inspires women by designing clothing created to mix and match. The NÜ brand reminds women to stay true to their femininity while maintaining a sophisticated, yet raw edge to their style and personality. THE BRAND POSITION Where the cool and simple of the North meet the rough and sophisticated of the Orient – expressed in a stylish fusion of elements.

NÜ DENMARK


The NÜ brand archetype is ‘the mentor’. We aim to be ‘inspiring stylists’ for women wishing to stand out – in a raw, sophisticated and feminine way. We are confident in what we do and find joy in sharing our wisdom with our audience. It is our desire to build trust in the NÜ brand and to function as a guiding light in the world of fashion and style. THE TYPICAL NÜ WOMAN: • wants to appear sophisticated and wear eye-catching clothes • dreams of being seductive and empowered • uses her cosmopolitan experience to appear refined and exciting • is conscious, classic, mysterious, sophisticated, brave and independent • takes a stand, stands out, and does not bother what others think of her Age is not the primary factor in defining the target group of NÜ. It is more a question of style than of age.
