The collection called “Cocktail Mountaineering” showed a new side to the fast growing fashion house. Multiple styles neatly organized in bulk appearances on the catwalk took the audience on a timeline trip from traditional wear in Norwegian mountains, to simplistic dresses and diamonds as of 1920s, smoky typists’ á la the 70s and back to modern outdoor wear anno 2012. It was obvious that a lot of effort has now been put down on raising the woman’s wear to the same top notch level as the brand’s men’s wear.
-We have produced this collection with quality materials like skin and similarities, so it hurts a bit in the wallet. However, it adds a more sophisticated touch to the garments and it looks better, says Peder Børresen to side2.no.
After seeing dresses and suits with tidy and clean cut, in addition to playful patterns on blouses and skirts, it’s only fair to say that the designers has yet again struck home.
