BY MALENE BIRGER
Founded in 2003, By Malene Birger is headquartered in Cophenhagen’s historic city of Frederiksberg. Maja Dixdotter heads up the brand’s design collective, placing focus on a conscious approach that celebrates a “contemporary bohemian” spirit.
ON THE OUTSIDE
Scandinavian minimalism meets a carefree, creative attitude — each piece thoughtfully combines refinement and utility. Collections consist of a restrained colour palette, natural fibres and feminine detailing; with a small dose of sequins or animal print thrown in for good measure.
ON THE INSIDE
By Malene Birger’s sustainability practices are focused upon People, Anti-Corruption and a Code of Conduct. As part of these initiatives, the brand also has an ongoing collaboration with Women for Women International. A portion of sales from specially designed pieces go towards the charity’s year-long training programme: teaching entrepreneurial skills and ensuring women’s voices are heard at home and in their communities.
