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 heyday 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 colorful – 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.”
