Across all four fashion capitals designers use new countries as inspiration to explore heritage design in an effort to create something new. Designer Nobieh Talaei references Denmark for her Spring 2019 collection, specifically Danish folk and Tudor style design from the late 19th century.
The chic collection seamlessly blends recognizable folk costume techniques, such as the extra wide lapels that define the shoulders or the kerchief rapped around the neck worn beneath a cap – traditionally a bonnet, with current patterns, shapes and styles.
Impressive is the variation of knit techniques. The basket-like weave is elegantly applied to bandeau tops, as embroidery on sleeves, as a layering apron and even accessories.
This collection is perfect for the well read, sophisticated traveler that can appreciate centuries of tradition re-worked and re-interpreted into pleasant modern-day shapes for work, for play or where ever.
