There is a certain expression that simply goes ’Gone Fishing’, meaning that if it’s a day with good weather, you put your activities or work to one side, you close for the day and you enjoy some good summer time outdoors.  Samsøe Samsøe’s SS23 collection ’Gone Fishing’ explores this freedom outside of the city: the freedom to take a break from your usual routines, to be liberated from your everyday life and to be free to do whatever you wish. 

As humans, sometimes we just need to take a break and to find positivity in the small things in life: things like enjoying a nice summer night out with friends and loved ones.  With this in mind, the Spring Summer 2023 collection takes inspiration from both long summer evenings and the music scene of the nineties and millennium. It celebrates going with the flow and enjoying life – all shown vividly in the silhouettes, color choices and prints. 

The collection gives you everything you need for that refined light Spring and Summer wardrobe. For the Samsøe Samsøe woman An ombré dress is cut on the bias making it fit beautifully on all bodies. Elsewhere a jacquard paisley 5-pocket pant could be worn with a tailored tube top, a slimmer summary knit or an asymmetrical one shoulder ribbed tank top. Or the updated 2000s cargo pants that feel very relaxed when paired with a refined sheer blouse with detailed pleating.  Together they form the staples of the collection.  

While for men, ’Gone Fishing’ was inspired by Pop Music cropped and boxy shapes contrasting with a more laid-back approach centered around loose pants and knits. Key highlights for the collection are: oversized ‘dad’ shirts, cargo pants in lightweight qualities and vintage inspired leather jackets. Illustrative prints are appearing on shirting, and outerwear, The Samsøe Samsøe guy always stays cool, and easy! 

The color palette of this season comprises soft shades in pistachio and off white, earthy and silverish tones, enlivened with a few pops of red, cherry, soft pink and neon grounded by colours such as faded black, sage and a variety of brown hues. Together it gives a refreshing take on what Samsøe Samsøe has to offer and break into the new season with an optimistic and vibrant note. 

Its all giving flashbacks of the nineties and millennial era. Y2K plays strongly into the collection, but in a more refined way: a more Samsøe Samsøe way. Whether you stay in the city and escape your normal workday to hang out at an urban beach and answer emails on your phone or decide to close down your shop for the day and go on a hike in the country, Samsøe Samsøe hopes to inspire you to discover freedom with this refreshing collection.
