Copenhagen-based fashion house By Malene Birger In Exclusive Collaboration With Author and Influencer Pernille Teisbaek For Pre-Spring 2018
Pernille has designed a 10-piece capsule collection based on some of By Malene Birger´s iconic silhouettes, to be sold exclusively at Net-a-porter. She has also styled the four key campaing images, bringing her inimitable sense of style and appreciation of Scandinavian design to the collection.
The capsule epitomizes the easy, yet discernably sophisticated aesthetic whic Pernille has become internationally recognized for. Author of Dress Scandinavian: Style Your Life and Wardrobe the Danish Way, editorial stylist and street style star with over a half a million Instagram users daily following her digital footprints, Pernille is one of Denmark´s most prolific exports and has a long history of support of support of the brand.
“I’ve chosen to develop on my favorite styles from By Malene Birger’s existing classic silhouettes with a focus on a more minimalist and timeless feel and a playful twist of contrasts between the feminine and the masculine. For example, I’ve styled broad-shouldered mannish suiting with a feminine camisole, or an oversized shirt styled with a silk pencil skirt.”
The 10-piece capsule offers a complete wardrobe for the beginning of the new season covering outerwear to after-dark. Masculine tailoring is given a bold check treatment, while the perfect striped cotton shirt and silk balloon sleeve blouse slots seamlessly into any discerning closet. Luxurious materials including cashmere and silk combine with pure simplicity of design, offering the ultimate building blocks for successful style. In addition to her interpretation of the collection, Pernille has also put together a blueprint for its styling. “I love to combine different materials in a tonal look, like a chunky cashmere knit with a light silk slip dress— the two combined create a comfortable and elegant look, which can be elevated with high heels,” she explains.
Elsewhere she suggests reconsidering tailoring for occasion wear, “Masculine suiting is a striking alternative to the ubiquitous party dress,”” she says, “and by adding a beautiful lace bra underneath, high heels and statement earrings, you create a very sexy evening look.” Other evening option include the combination of silk separates, “The beautiful silk chemise with matching skirt in soft cream tone, works perfectly with red lips, nails and high heels for a spring evening.” Wearable, interchangeable and flawlessly timeless, the capsule perfectly projects Pernille’s less-is-more attitude to style and design.
