Cecilie Bahnsen Transforms Surplus Fabric Into Delightfully Ethereal Dresses
Take a closer look at the designer’s newest cloud-like frocks.
Cecilie Bahnsen has unveiled the latest in her ongoing series of upcycled collections, this time crafting delicate springtime frocks out of leftover fabric.
“Encore 06” is a range of three white dresses, each crafted with the intricate precision and voluminous, airy silhouette that Bahnsen is known for. The first is a puffed-sleeve style that hits just above the knee. Made of surplus matelasse, the cloud-like garment features a subtly shimmery finish. The collection’s second offering, a strappy gown is overlaid with ribbon detailing, creating a gridded pattern dotted with fabric flowers. Lastly, Bahnsen embroiders clusters of daisies on a sheer, collared dress fastened with puffy bows at the back.
Cecilie Bahnsen’s “Encore 06” capsule is available at the designer’s website. Each piece is available in limited quantities and is made-to-order.
