THE OUTNET launches an upcycled capsule with fashion brand, Cecilie Bahnsen
THE OUTNET is launching an 8-piece upcycled capsule with Scandinavian fashion brand, Cecilie Bahnsen. The collection focuses on the brands classic silhouettes crafted with a chic black, white, pale pink and yellow colour palette. Utilising unique fabrics from the brands previous seasons such as the floaty mist matelassé as seen on the Karmen dress and the light yet solid mistral seersucker used to create the voluminous silhouette on the Hooda dress, this capsule stays true to the signature handwriting of Cecilie Bahnsen.
“This project in partnership with THE OUTNET is focused on bringing back pieces that we love. The styles are pulled from the Spring Summer 2020 collection, which is one of my favourite collections and still inspires us today. In the studio we up-cycle materials from past seasons, breathing a new life into them since each material we use is so precious and unique. Silhouettes are brought back to life in the most beautiful ways, where a sense of timelessness is brought about. The brand is continuously striving towards a minimum waste model, creating pieces that last, that live outside of trends and that are cherished in the everyday.”
– Cecilie Bahnsen, Founder and Designer
THE OUTNET將於2月10日（星期五）與北歐品牌Cecilie Bahnsen一起推出共有8款升級再造服裝的別注系列。此系列採用品牌的經典剪裁，配以時尚的黑、白、淺粉紅及黃色色調。獨特的面料來自品牌以往的服裝系列，包括Karmen連身裙所採用的輕盈matelassé提花凸紋雙層織物，以及Hooda連身裙所採用的泡泡紗面料，輕薄而結實，此別注系列完全展現出Cecilie Bahnsen的標誌性特色。
品牌創辦人兼設計師Cecilie Bahnsen表示：「這個與THE OUTNET 合作的計劃旨在再次帶出我們最愛的設計。服裝款式來自2020年春夏系列，這也是其中一個我最喜愛，並一直啟發著我的系列。我們在工作室中升級再造過往剩下的物料，為這些矜貴而獨特的物料注入新生命。優雅的剪裁以最美麗的形式再現人前，把隽永的感覺真實表現出來。品牌一直致力於縮減廢物，創作可長久保存，能獨立於潮流以外，且適合日常穿搭的服飾。

Describe your design aesthetic. What are your hero pieces?
My design aesthetic has always been characterized through the power and strength found in romance and femininity. This sensitivity is complimented through a modern lens along with the simplicity and pragmatism of my Scandinavian heritage. Some of our most notable pieces are the Uma Dress, Selena Top as well as our Fryd Bag and Sara Shoes.
What would you describe as your brand superpower? What makes you stand out from everyone else?
I believe the brand has a unique approach to looking at the way in which women dress themselves, in bringing out their distinct individuality through the pieces we create. We pride ourselves in being able to invite the intricate details of couture into the everyday. In pairing a dress with a set of trousers and sneakers, tucking the billowing skirts with an easy knit. The remarkable fabrics which are meticulously sourced and then designed into its effortless silhouette. Pieces for Monday as well as for the weekend, and every day in between.
How important is taking a considered approach to fashion? What does that mean to you?
I find myself being quite dedicated to having a considered and responsible approach to fashion, where my team and I choose to create every piece with intention. Finding the best solutions to create something beautiful, while also limiting its impact on our environment and its people. We have a number of pieces that were created through an up cycled lens, using materials from our archives to create and design something that feels entirely new. We acknowledge that the path to responsibility is ongoing one, where new lessons are learned every step of the way, but we continue to grow as we continue to focus on this in our industry.
