Baum und Pferdgarten
Surrounded by journalists, Rikke Baumgarten and Helle Hestehave shared their ideas about the future of fashion and the inspiration behind their show. “Sustainability is the future of fashion,” said Rikke. “We work a lot with sustainability, forty-four per cent of this collection is made with recycled and ecological materials”, added Helle. They told us that the show was inspired by Bobbi Jene Smith, an American dancer. “While working on this collection, we thought about dancer’s wardrobe, her clothes, what she’s wearing in a studio or at a party or in a café. We then combined a mix of sports wear with ready-to-wear and concentrated on words like liberation, freedom and strength, which was a great way to getting into the silhouettes.”
The collection contained many wearable items like transparent bucket hats, cropped shirts, biker shorts, bodysuits, flounce dresses, patterned leggings, cut-out shirts, checkered suits, light baggy trousers and classy handbags. After asking the designers if they were happy with the result, Rikke answered: “I am not always happy with the result, but today I am, as working with those pale bright colours was something new to us and I hope it was beautiful.” It was indeed.
