Mes Dames A/W 12

it goes without saying that i fell in love with the Mes Dames A/W 12 campaign the minute i saw it, since it so beautifully combines my love for classic fashion and art. shot by photographer Anna Malmberg, the campaign takes inspiration from 19th century oil portraits and especially the work of Finnish painter Helene Schjerfbeck. Mes Dames designer Lisa Wikander will be showing her latest collection at Stockholm fashion week this year.

Mes Dames creates women’s wear in the intersection of Nordic minimalism and French sensuality. Using materials of the highest quality combined with fine tailoring, the label aims to provide each wearer with a sense of uniqueness and elegance. Mes Dames collects interesting, characterful women, be they historical heroines, fictional characters or present role models; each collection has its own muse.
