The line includes floral embroidered dresses, A Floaty Dress minis, and voluminous tops. They’re not cheap — Bahnsen’s prices range anywhere from $800 to well over $2,000 —Copenhagen-based designer Cecilie Bahnsen isn’t your typical trendy Scandinavian label — for one, her price point is higher than other, more well-known favorites like Ganni. But she’s developed a cult following for poufy dresses that have the same offbeat appeal as Simone Rocha or Comme des Garçons. They’re over-the-top, feminine, and just quirky enough to keep them from looking like costumes.
LVMH Prize finalist Cecilie Bahnsen draws on the minimalist aesthetic of her Danish heritage for her eponymous, Copenhagen-based label. The Royal College of Art graduate’s selection of ethereal gowns, elegant dresses and sophisticated separates are a showcase of whimsical silhouettes with a sculptural edge. Each piece is meticulously handmade with unique fabrics and traditional techniques, finished with couture-like details for an inherently feminine feel. Look out for tulle fabrics, delicate details and interesting silhouettes. Today, Bahnsen is launching an exclusive capsule collection with MATCHESFASHION.COM.
The line includes floral embroidered dresses, A Floaty Dress, and voluminous tops. They’re not cheap — Bahnsen’s prices range anywhere from $800 to well over $2,000 — but they’re all pretty special. It’s the sort of splurge you’d make if you were looking for a nonconventional wedding dress or if you had a particularly important fancy occasion. If you’re not looking to spend that much money, there’s also an exclusive beaded sandal with Suicoke which is guaranteed to sell out fast.
