Fanfare for Librarians

Time for something a little different, I think, and a little new:

You know me and my penchant for Scandinavian cool, I can’t help myself! Big winners at Oslo Fashion week for their first collection deviating from their usual line of denim, Mardou & Dean are set for big things, if this collection is anything to go by. Founded by Ingrid Bredholt and Patrik Rosenfors, their collections are geared towards “the urban traveller”. They state that “the idea behind Mardou&Dean is to design a wardrobe of unique, tailored pieces of the finest fabrics and leathers as well as simple everyday wear like t-shirts and jeans”, and in this they appeared to have succeeded, wholly! Each piece is designed in Norway, and Patrik was charming enough to send me some shots from Oslo Fashion week’s show, as they currently lack a lookbook for the coming line, but I think these illustrate quite perfectly some wonderful things to come!

(On a side not, they did the white/grey hair thing! I love it love it love it!)

And two of my favourites from their menswear collections:

Look at that first shot! That would be a super draping dress on any lady, as well as being hot stuff on any man… In any case, there are no current stockists in the UK (boo hoo!), but hopefully, very soon, given their recent glorious efforts, because that bolt jacket and grey dyed dress are beauties with my name all over them!
