The Summit

With her moody and sensuous Spring Summer 2021 collection, Cecilie Bahnsen sends her women on a journey inspired by nature, unity and hope.

"This season I had an image in my mind of a woman on a journey across a landscape - a symbolic wanderer. The idea came from three very different references. There is a series of beautiful black and white photographs by Hashimoto Shoko from the 1970s of a group of Goze. They were blind women musicians who traveled from town to town in Japan, playing their music. The three women in his photos really inspired me. Then I was also looking at James Turrell’s installations, that glow, and otherworldly feeling, which I really wanted to bring into the colours this season, the electric pink and glaring green."
