Based on the virtuous concepts of upcycling and repurposing, the brand dedicates itself to implementing innovative initiatives to reduce waste. The collection is made entirely using the material in the archives from past seasons. All Cecilie Bahnsen fabrics are made in skilled mills across Europe, reflecting Cecilie’s obsession with couture, handwork, and craft.
A collection concept of upcycled pieces to give a second life to “deadstock”- though deadstock hardly does justice to the intricate couture-like workmanship of her fabrics. The attention to detail, craftsmanship, and old techniques that characterize Cecilie Bahnsen's use of fabrics is also evident in her breathtakingly lovely silhouettes.
The collection is another step towards integrity and consciousness at Cecilie Bahnsen, which has been working to combat waste, mostly recently sourcing recycled faille made from plastic bottles fished out of the ocean.
