    NORDIC AVANT-GARDE IN SILENCE

    Alongside the colour black, Barbara I Gongini presents shades of non-dyed fabrics in natural tones in her showroom in Paris. The beauty lays in the silence of the fabrics in contrast to the expressive textures. It’s like a Nordic myth, just like the designer herself, born in the razor-sharp landscapes of the Faroe Islands but currently based in Copenhagen. Let’s see what the designer had to say through her Spring/Summer 2018 collection presented in Paris.

  • Thought On Gender

    THOUGHTS ON GENDER EQUALITY AND ANDROGYNY

    Of course, we attend the Pride Parade in Copenhagen every year, where we celebrate the beautiful and colorful diversity of genders.  Unfortunately, there is still is a clear necessity to manifest that same sex relationships is the norm, even though its old news. It is therefore important to state that that the freedom to love whom you choose is just a basic human right. It would be a more colorful world if it would be fully embraced.

    DELVING DEEPER INTO THE WORLD OF BARBARA I GONGINI

    BARBARA I GONGINI is no stranger to the world of the avant-garde. On the contrary, she’s an exemplar of the creative niche and its Nordic constituents. Deux Hommes last saw her Spring/Summer 2017 collection a year ago at Copenhagen Fashion Week where her runway channeled the unquestionable spirit of a particularly well-known Tim Burton character.

    INTERVIEW WITH BARBARA I GONGINI

    I think that sustainability is a way of living and of course a way of being. Whilst living in one of the cleanest environments on earth, I have always been very close to all the elements that somehow influence one´s core being. There is therefore no other alternative way, than thinking in these terms. The approach of creating a sustainable company definitely comes from the tradition, the closeness to the forces of nature and the responsibility for our surrounding, which is deeply rooted in myself.

  • Many A Wondera

    Many a wanderer. Few reach their destination.

    Many a wanderer. Few reach their destination. These treacherous lands. Alas, they take so many. Their razor-sharp cliffs, mesmerising drops, hounding winds and roaring seas. These are no plains for the faint hearted. Amidst the wilderness, a notion of aesthetic liberation has arisen. Barbara í Gongini, a constant gardener, resilient to such barren circumstances, finds beauty here. Constructing her eponymous universe tactically and without hesitation. Barbara is as sincere as the garments her hands have meticulously yielded. She is a true artisan, an observer of our times. We caught up with her, after her latest presentation in Copenhagen, to explore her profound take on contemporary wardrobes, that unique connection to dance and the resonance of soundscapes.

    Designing is a process that requires skills, knowledge and above all creativity. For Barbara I Gongini, one more thing comes into play and that is heritage. Gongini’s Nordic roots have long now been adapted to her designer DNA, becoming the main force behind every new collection. Just a few weeks before the unveiling of her latest offering at the Copenhagen Fashion Week, we sat down with the designer for an exclusive interview where we discuss design anatomy, the influence of heritage and the future of high-end fashion.

  • A Different Take

    a different take on Nordic garments

    I can’t open my eyes. A dazzling light wraps and blinds me. It’s warm and glacial together. I feel strangely free. The light is charging a creative power, it’s exciting. It speaks with me. It tells me a story of fashion and art, tradition and innovation. A story with a northern European charm… The unusual fairy-tale of a modern Hans Christian Andersen, that of BARBARA I GONGINI.

  • A Laconic Jerney

    A LACONIC JOURNEY

    Time tells many tales. A journey to the remote Faroe Islands is a truly overwhelming experience, filled with emotions, sounds and scents. Hailing from these unique isles, is BARBARA I GONGINI, creative director of her eponymous line. Her words resonate strongly as she speaks, calm and quietly composed. We sat down over black coffees to find our more about her connection with her roots, keeping black relevant and the ethical timelessness of her vision. A conversation with Barbara.

  • Nordic By Nature

    NORDIC BY NATURE

    There is a difference between the sexes, as there should be—thank God for that," says Faroese designer Barbara I Gongini. "Nonetheless, there is a place, in my opinion—somewhere in the mid center—where there is a crossover or a neutral zone that I am quite fascinated with. It is in this "neutral zone" that Gongini developed her striking style that mixes avant-gardism and androgyny. With her eponymous line, Gongini irreverently blurs the line between the masculine and feminine that humanizes, and equalizes, fashion. We spoke with the designer, who is currently based in Copenhagen, about sustainable ethics, fabrics as art, and how her clothes allow the wearer to be whomever they want to be.
