Cecilie Bahnsen operates at the intersection of couture and ready-to-wear to create luxury clothing with a relaxed, timeless style.
Celebrating the traditions of fine French fashion and the design culture of Scandinavia, the collections combine craftsmanship and details with architectural volumes and sculptural silhouettes to offer a contemporary take on femininity.
Unique fabrics are hand-designed each season by founder and LVMH Prize finalist Cecilie Bahnsen, a Copenhagen native who returned to her home town to found her eponymous label in 2015 after studying at the Royal College of Art in London and working with couture houses in Paris.
Her aim is to craft effortless clothes that last and that can transform the wearer, with unexpected combinations of softness and structure, minimal and maximal, perfect and imperfect. Each collection builds on the previous one to develop a world of pieces that can be cherished for years, passed between friends, and reinterpreted and restyled to express the individuality of the wearer.
