There are designers that put out one, or two strong collections. Then the commercial pressure suffocates them or they are out of smart ideas. That’s not the case with TRINE LINDEGAARD.
The Dane with an affinity for African patterns is convincing over and over again, with every new collection. For the A/W 2013 season Lindegaard collaborated with the inmates of a British prison.
The program Fine Cell Work teaches prisoners to work with needle and thread. The designer visited bad guys with a knack for stitching to work with them on her new collection under the working title “Happiness”.
The mix of sweatshirts giving off a refreshingly naïve impression (peace dove, hearts and flowers), that emerged in prison, and the African patterns that LINDEGAARD also incorporated in her previous collections go together very well.
