Copenhagen based fashion house YDE creates unique and distinctive Prêt-à-Porter with a fine “poetic” touch. The label presented its new collection SS13 at Copenhagen Fashion Week August 2012, runway models accessorised with gorgeous shoes by Christian Louboutin and with vintage Georg Jensen sterling silver jewellery, curated by designer Ole Yde from the Danish silversmith’s impressive archives.

The models hair in loose waves, pinned to one side and graphic eye makeup complimented the feminine styles shown at the YDE by Ole Yde runway show. YDE is clearly a brand not following the typical Scandinavian minimalistic understated style, but rather on the contrary embraces glamorous luxury pieces for women, inspired from previous Hollywood divas.
A few backstage photos from the YDE by Ole Yde runway show for Spring Summer 2013.
Ole Yde is inspired by all things beautiful and glamorous.
Over the years I have learned that what is important in a dress is the woman who is wearing it.
When Sarah Jessica Parker visited freezing Oslo for the Nobel Peace Prize this winter she came in a leather coat and left in a warm and snug down jacket. The two founders of Norwegian luxury brand Fleischer Couture left one of their beautiful coats in the reception where Sarah Jessica Parker was staying. They didn’t hear anything and assumed she didn’t receive it. But shortly after she was spotted wearing it. Not only during her stay in Oslo, but also as of recent in the wintery streets of New York.
We would too, if there was one for us! Who would have thought a down jacket could look this gorgeous!?
Fleischer Couture, founded in 2008 and based in Oslo, Norway, designs unique high quality winter wear for women, encapsulating materials such as merino wool, silk, cashmere, baby alpaca and goose down. Focusing on combining functionality and femininity, with a subdued classic look, we bravely state that our products constitute the perfect fail-safe choice. Fleischer Couture is the combination of a perfectly engineered fit, sporty details, butter-soft materials, golden buttons and a unique embroidered number. The collection ranges from jackets to underwear and from socks to beanies in soft muted colours with a hint of braver shades. See the full collection here fleischercouture.no
This season from Danish designer duo Baum und Pferdgarten is a collection of an intriguing mix of sleek simplicity combined with colorful and vibrant block combinations as well as geometric blocking of fabrics and prints.
Baum und Pferdgarten’s Spring-Summer collection 2013 combines art, architecture, and design in a rather futuristic way.
With a relaxed yet sleek typical Danish style, they’ve become so popular for, this is another collection worth noticing. Cut lines, color blocks, and graphic prints dominates along large color contrast panels. Yet the fabric and tailoring is so delicate, creating some truly fab pieces for your Spring wardrobe.
Minimalistic, clean and sporty. Voluminous tops are teamed with narrow trousers and skirts, or sharp pleated skirts. Collarless jackets underline a simple shape and dimensional quilting on outerwear, sweatshirts and luxurious structured silk, as well as fine wool hooded cardigans, piping, and visible zippers draw attention to the sporty influence.
