Danish designer Freya Dalsjø’s AW18 collection is a contemporary twist on classic wardrobe pieces and goes in blacks, greys and cold bronze. The materials consist of silk or cotton and she works with layers, raw seams, draping and different cuts. You can change the appearance of a lot of the garments by tying and draping them, buttoning them up and taking sleeves on or off. This unique design approach means that you basically get several garments with every garment you buy. Truly versatile yet stand out pieces.
Dalsjø manages to balance the looks by working with color blocks in contrasting colors. She is one of the most forward-thinking and innovative designer’s working today and her AW18 collection is centuries away from plain design. She is creating clothes that appeal to fashion-forward women who appreciate contemporary design.
“I cannot be bothered with requests to make something cheaper, of lesser quality, or to think only in commercial ways. I love to have my own creative universe in which I create what I feel, and ignore the easy ways out” Dalsjø says.
This is avant-garde clothes for women who like to actually use their wardrobe.
Freya is really doing her own thing and setting the trend. No doubt others will follow.
