There are a lot of great things that come from Denmark – jazz, architecture, Georg Jensen’s homewares. But we think the best comes in the form of womenswear designer Julie Eilenberger.
Influenced by the creative environment since childhood, Eilenberger’s pull towards the arts was magnetic, and now she’s got the cred to prove it. Enter Eilenberger’s AW 13 collection, an array of quirky and fresh takes on traditional tailoring and refined female dress. It’s this philosophy that has seen Eilenberger’s designs reach further shores than that of the motherland. Setting up shop in London in 2012, Eilenberger’s roots in art, costume and design from her days in Florence and Berlin are threaded through the delightfully intricate yet equally relaxed pant, shirt, knit, dress and coat combinations of the collection. It’s this intricacy that saw Eilenberger learn the international design ropes from none other than Christopher Kane. Such an influence on the art of fashion could hardly go unnoticed. And it hasn’t.
Angular takes on the tailored suit, bulky knit and bomber jacket are the exterior of the many considered layers of Eilenberger’s AW offering, displaying foundation pieces of graphic sheers, lace and silk to build your new generation wardrobe upon. Oh and did we mention that modern giants C-Heads and AnOther are fans of her work? Well, now we have, so remember the name ladies. We’re already craving more.
