Freya Dalsjø: aesthetic contrastsThe rising star of Danish fashion offers a vision of fashion sculptured by subtle artistic influences
The rising star of Danish fashion offers a vision of fashion sculptured by subtle artistic influences.
Freya Dalsjø is the Danish founder and creative director of the womenswear brand bearing her name. The young designer studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Antwerp, before returning to Copenhagen and launching her debut collection at the Fashion Week of Copenhagen. She then collaborated with Kopenhagen Fur and brought her creations in leather, fur and innovative materials to the Somerset House of London and Pitti Immagine of Florence. Her fashion vision offers a very contemporary edge with straight lines, clean silhouettes and sophisticated graphics. In recent collections, the artistic flair of Freya Dalsjø has led to a new approach, far from the coloured brushstrokes of her early years. She has a captivating ability to interpret the perception of the female body thanks to overlapping effects and volumes, as well as a seductive mix of colours and textures, redefining luxury in more contemporary terms: the items invite movement and comfort while maintaining scrupulous attention to detail and craftsmanship. The irreverent use of Kopenhagen mink verges on a new-punk style, creating a very unconventional look. Her muses are Coco O. singer from the Danish band Quadron and the American top model Lindsey Wixson (the face of the SS14 collection). She describes herself in this way:
“Art, cinema, literature, photography or any other means of expression give me an urge to create my own atmosphere. They give me the energy to make things, to say something with my tools. Art questions and states, and as a designer, it feeds me. It makes me aware of my surroundings and generates thoughts.”
