Christina Lindgaard Gerken has developed a women’s collection where the masculine, the classic and the constructed meets the feminine, the abstract and the draped. For a long time Christina Lindgaard Gerken has been interested in the interplay between the masculine and the feminine expression.

“Traditional cutting and classic menswear express a specific type of calm and timelessness. At the same time, over several decades, classic menswear has expressed masculinity, and for just as long women have borrowed references from menswear for their own clothing,” she says. The aim of the collection is also to create an aesthetic value that will make the consumers keep the garments for a longer time
