WELCOME TO SS14 Beautiful materials, a dramatic and delicate colour

In this collection it’s all in the mix, of colours,

palette and strong shapes make this Spring/

materials and textures. Whatever the combination,

Summer 2014 a collection to remember.

the idea is to add layers of interest and create a feast for the senses; eye candy and tactile delight.

We have found inspiration, in the meeting between the Nordic cold, grey and dramatic and the estival promise of sensuality and delight. To this we have added the 1950’s talent for pairing the cool and solid grey with pastels like pale pink, pistachio green, light blue, lavender, melon and lemon yellow. And in this collection you will find warmcold combinations that strike just the right note! The rich materials and textures in our products both look and feel like silk and suede, but they are much more lasting. We have a desire to emphasize quality craftsmanship and longevity in design. In tune with the ’Buy less, but better’ philosophy, beautiful and durable materials are all-important!

Get ready to be inspired!
