We discovered Aarhus-born designer Julie Eilenberger on the now sadly dormant Bengt website and instantly fell for her clean lines and strong silhouettes. Her experience with Chrisropher Kane is evident in her structured outerwear and we just had to know more about this rising star's influences.
We found out how architecture inspires her work.
CC: How does architecture influence your designs?
JE: Architecture inspires me because when you live in so many different places you notice different things to those who live there year round. I have lived in Denmark, Florence, Berlin and now in London. I am fascinated by the juxtaposition of Victorian housing stock and Brutalist architecture in London. In Berlin there's all this cheaply built 1970's architecture alongside surviving pre-war buildings, the both have their charms. I notice more and more as I travel, the lines, clothes and geometric forms of the cities I visit.
This sent the cogs in our minds whirling and we can't wait to share the outcome with you tomorrow!
