Ellen Pedersen will present her 2nd collection at Copenhagen Fashion week the 3 of February 2016.
For this collection Ellen Pedersen has worked closely together with stylist Oliver Fussing, photographer Mathilde Søes Rasmussen and model agency Mate Management/Benjamin Arno.
The desire to develop new pattern cutting made Ellen look into Khayamiya, where the Egyptian tent makers are creating fascinating tents with beautiful lines, symmetry and craftsmanship. She has been inspired by the symmetry in the tents and the discipline of fabric combination. The lines in the garments are in this collection both diagonal and curved.
Ellen always looks back to her muse and therefore the British subculture – the MODS. This fine boy has a longing for beautiful clothes, very specific and with a touch of a dark side. The collection is by that having more suiting, heavier wool, coats with lapels, fine shirts and polo’s with fabric mix, parka coat with a quilted innerjacket, fox trim on the hood and patches made of jerseys and ribs.
The trousers are tailored and with fine finishing, the jeans have either a path CF or a 2mm stitch at the front leg. All the trousers have for this collection become higher waist, the jackets shorter and everything a little bit more fitted to suit the young boys from Mate Management.
Fabric combination is an important part of the collection, the fabric used for this collection is dark green and black light wool, black pig suede leather, light nylons from Olmetex SpA , mesh, jerseys, fox fur, rib and hand bleached denim.
With the many fabric combination comes the discipline of putting it together. Ellen Pedersen masters a high level of sewing skills and uses the coverstitch machine to create light garments without lining. Other garments are put together with some fabrics pulled and other flat.
The collection has a vibe of a young gentleman, who appreciates details, cuttings and tailored sportswear finishing.
