Freya Dalsjø, a relatively new star on the fashion heaven proved yesterday with her SS17 show that she is a force to be reckoned with.
The show was held in the beautiful building Børsen. The “interior” was made out by white plastic wrapped around the pillars, working as striking coulisse that reflected the bright light, giving connotations to models walking in infinity or space.
Freya says that her vision for her design is to challenge the boundaries of material; the body and aesthetics. As a designer she aims to challenge these physical constraints and social constructs. This we feel that she nailed with her SS17 show yesterday. She provoked the boundaries between male and female along with the norms of old and new, fancy and butch.
At a preview Freya mentioned 90’s heroines and Sci-fi as inspiration. Yet another contrast well demonstrated in the collection. Among the well tailored shirt dresses with loose, flowing fits and interesting silhouettes, the 90’s were present through details such as sunglasses, pointy glazed high heeled boots and combos of wide pants and long fitted dresses/tunics. Sporty sci-fi influences were present through ski/space suits in padded material with anatomical patchwork. As well as playsuits made entirely from transparent plastic material witch drawstring details.
You could tell that Freya put some extensive work in to playing with the material and patterns to create details. Shiny fabric was mixed with matte cottons creating interesting patchwork that highlighted the different silhouettes.
The result was a well put together collection with a lot of attitude that really took you for a spin. Both the female and androgynous silhouettes matched with a harsh attitude turned these girls into power players that deserve your respect.
