Helena Christensen has announced her capsule collection for LA-based label Anine Bing. The supermodel has created a tight edit of clothing and accessories for founder Anine Bing’s namesake brand, which has just dropped online.
Speaking in a new interview about the collaboration, Christensen said she’s a longtime fan of Bing’s Copenhagen-meets-Cali aesthetic and regularly shops at the brand’s New York City boutique. “It’s actually where Anine and I first met; we just hit it off straight away. There are a lot of common interests, from our Danish heritage to art, photography and of course – fashion. The collaboration is something we’ve been talking about for a while and I’m really excited that it’s finally here!”
The collection, which Christensen says was inspired by her nineties hey-day and the pair’s mutual home country of Denmark, consists of polished everyday separates, a padded wear-everywhere clutch, jeans, and of course – a Bing-emblazoned t-shirt, which nods to the brand’s most popular style.
Christensen says the limited-edition collection was created to form an extension of her own personal style. “I never really know how to describe my personal style. I think because it isn’t a certain style per se, more of a peculiar mix of all different kinds of styles. I think the fact that my mother is from Peru and my father is from Denmark has given me a love for quirky mixes. I really love organic, fluid lines and shapeless, comfortable designs, but I am also totally drawn to anything colourful – a mix of flowers and patterns, all different kinds of fabrics mixed together, and layers upon layers. Both Anine and I wanted our Scandinavian heritage to clearly shine through so that side was downplayed a little for this collection.”
