Rabens Saloner Xx

I really love this label and live in every piece that I own..designed by Birgitte Raben Olrik, a former Buyer, from Copenhagen the garments are easy to wear; laidback but oh so fabulous with lots of gorgeous textures and earthy colour palettes that make you want to own more than one piece.  

Reading about the designs on their website has only made me an even bigger fan..

Rabens Saloner is a state of mind. A cross between flair for fashion and a genuine love for traditional Asian craftsmanship. With every new collection all in her head (due to an old injury she can’t draw!) Birgitte visits a hotchpotch of workrooms and family businesses in all corners of Asia. Village dressmakers, leather smiths, bonepolishers, armies of knitting grandmas, and Nepalese men, huddled in groups of four to stitch the most breathtaking embroideries. Birgitte’s got a soft spot for things that are made by hand, and she’s very keen to promote sustainability in the countries of origin.”There is so much inspiration to gather from local artisans if you show them that you appreciate their skills and admire their traditions. It’s a kind of mutual fertilization, if you keep an open mind, amazing things can emerge from it,” Birgitte says.

As if the delicious clothes weren't enough to sell me..I love that there is a story behind each collection and that she promotes sustainability in the countries of origin. 

Summer has started to be delivered..Love Xx
