The lines of minimalist style and avant-garde design rarely cross, but Cecilie Bahnsen has set about changing that. Founded in Denmark in 2014, this Scandi brand has steadily risen through the fashion ranks over the last few seasons, but we’re of the opinion that 2019 is going to be its strongest year yet. Just a couple of weeks ago, Cecilie Bahnsen was undoubtedly the toast of Copenhagen Fashion Week, from which its frothy catwalk creations proceeded to populate our Instagram feeds.
Looking at them, it’s little wonder the brand’s delicate, almost childlike designs have stolen the hearts of the fashion elite. Featuring oversized yet simple silhouettes, beautiful embellishment and reach-out-and-touch-me textures, the pieces are akin to what you’d expect to find in a couturier’s dressing-up box. Unashamedly extra, but with refined shapes and a borderline neutral colour palette, the label’s dresses, tops, trousers and skirts hold the same appeal for pared-back dressers and they do for those who wish to command the spotlight. As such, it’s garnered a somewhat diverse loyal following, from bougie dressers Bettina Looney, Anna Rosa Vitiello and Maria Bernad to austere trailblazers Debora Rosa and Pernille Teisbaek.
Whatever your outfit penchant, you’re definitely going to want to add a piece of Cecilie Bahnsen to your wardrobe. Keep scrolling to see how influencers are wearing their Cecilie Bahnsen buys; then proceed to shop the current collection below.
