Fashion designer Julie Als wants to make clothing a luxury product, which it once was. For her the path to luxury is about design, materials and flexibility. First and foremost she wants to break with the concepts of clothing as fronts and backs. The body is three dimensional and flexible and that ought to be reflected in the design.

Consequently she uses the circle as her starting point as well as an experimental cutting which accommodates the interaction between the body’s form and movements. The materials have a high aesthetic quality focusing on tactility. The collection is timeless and based on styles that can interact but also function individually and be part of existing wardrobes.
