An iconic Cecilie Bahnsen style, the Beate dress in crisp, white cotton combines feminine details with an architectural structure. Originally introduced in the Spring Summer 2018 collection, it remains a contemporary take on a classic garment. A high, ruffled collar is offset by dropped, balloon sleeves and a full bodice, both featuring horizontal pleats in a variety of widths. The back and cuffs are fastened with fine, fabric ties.
The smocked Trude dress is cut from a soft shade of pale-pink organza, crafted with a naturally fitted body that flares into a two-tiered skirt and rhythmic grid pattern. The three-quarter sleeves and paneled skirt play with proportions revealing an understated volume that epitomize Cecilie Bahnsen’s fresh and modern take on romantic dressing. The Trude was first introduced to the Cecilie Bahnsen universe in the AW19 collection, reminiscing on the brooding soundtrack of composer Anders Trentemøller, the season where moments of colour were introduced to a predominantly black and white collection.
The Bey Gown is a romantic piece which emphasizes Cecilie Bahnsen’s penchant for loose voluminous silhouettes and a whimsical sensibility. The Bey Gown is characterized by a slim bandeau bodice, a tactile velvet floral grid and velvet bow straps.
Robin dress is covered in tiny, floral macramé embroidery in a cobalt, mint, yellow combination. It’s crafted with voluminous puffed sleeves and turns to reveal an open back that secures with slender black ties. Debuting at the spring summer 2019 runway show held at the industrialRefshaleøen, a rustic-turned-hipster area that used to be a shipyard, a collection taking inspiration from the ephemeral beauty of artistic husband and wife duo, Christo and Jeanne Claude. Drawing parallels to the romanticism that each piece evokes and the idea of wearable fantasy.
Billowy, balloon-like sleeves echo the full, tiered skirt of the Regitze wrap dress. Fine ties secure the frame around the body to create a soft silhouette that contrasts with the grid detail of the semi-opaque, white fil-coupè fabric, adding a subtle sensuality and strength to a romantic design. The Regitze made it´s debut in Spring Summer 2019, a collection described by Vogue as “Fanciful and soft, like they were dreamed up inside some luxurious dress-up box… A collection celebrating femininity in the most magical of ways”
