Text

Liselotte Hornstrup's work focuses on giving value back to the clothes and to the user, and at the same time break with today's 'use and discard' culture. That has resulted in a collection consisting of two lines.

One is called //inner// focusing on the practical values: the clothes are comfortable, they can endure use, they fit into the wardrobe, and at the same time they have a lot of personality. The other line, //rarity//, is a hand-made one-off collection, primarily based on recycled and left-over materials, including recycled fur and older show pieces from Kopenhagen Fur. The collection as a whole is dark and monochrome with lots of raw edges and details.
