Editor – Keanu Adorablenorse-projects-pre-spring-2016-moments-lookbook-01

Danish creative studio, Norse Projects, work at the intersection of art, design and function. Intrinsically rooted in Scandinavia with aesthetics of Danish design, inspired by nature and natural surroundings, Norse Projects advocates simplicity and a minimal approach to design that is timeless in nature and aesthetic.

This season the Copenhagen based brand have created a lookbook entitled ‘Moments’ which showcases the apparel in motion, highlighting the cuts, patterns and textures of their new pieces.

The collection keeps in line with its Nordic tradition with its design whilst taking inspiration from military environments along with a focus on different sub-species of flora, accompanied with a purist approach along with progressive ideals through the use of aerial lines, soft textures, and subtle details. These are emphasised through the use of lightweight twills, over-dyed weaves and durable nylon ripstop, all aiming to advance the idea of light active wear.


Notable pieces in the release include a Mackintosh jacket in lightweight Japanese nylon, mid-layer jackets with Primaloft wadding and vertical quilting, rainwear jackets with heat-welded seams, and lightweight sweatshirts with an all-over rib structure. Also a workwear –inspired heine twill jacket, constructed from a mid weight cotton twill. The collection is available for purchase on the brands website.
