Samsøe Samsøe presents the new Spring & Summer 2022 collection ‘Chasing the sun’
‘Chasing the Sun’ is the name of the Spring Summer 2022 collection by Samsøe Samsøe. It o ers an optimistic view of the world, and delves into the sense of never ending travels and adventures: the dreamingand hoping of brighter days ahead and afeeling of positivity within us. It attempts to capture that euphoric and inevitable desire tobreak free and explore.
The collection takes us through a time lapse, where we touch base with the inspiring and de ning 70’s and 80’s as well as take a small peek into 90’s fashion. The overall feeling and mood of the collection is retro, yet elevated. Contemporary prints, nostalgic patterns, updated jacquards and nuances in silhouettes give us a revival but which is very much in line with the trends of the new 20’s.
‘The collection, for me, is all about explorations, travels and freedom. The freedom we’ve all missed the past year, and the travels we will be able to do again so soon. The new relationships we will gain, and the chasing of newness we’ve all longed for! I really wanted to bring across the sense of positivity and the yearning for summer, and with the colours and silhouettes of this collection, I believe we achieved that.’ – Gitte Wetter, Intermediate Head of Design.
This season, menswear recharges with the playfulness of the 70’s, portrayed in both prints and colourways. Pants are wide legged, andthe collars of shirts are slightly elongated.Jacquards and embroidered shirting add to the tactility, as do heavy knitted, loose tted cardigans. Sun-bleached colourways add to the dreamy, road trippy feel of the collection. To balance out short sleeve shirts in crisp cottons, lyocell and hemp, there is impeccably tailored suiting in wool and structured twill, both with a nod to the classic 80’s silhouettes.
Womenswear tells a story of a power woman on the move. A sense of youth, optimism and e ortlessness are concepts that describe this collection. A new colour palette is introduced; turquoise, lime greens and bright fuchsias contrast with hues of bronzed browns, dirty beige and dusty blues. Here, we see more of a time travel from 70’ssilhouettes in crochet dresses and shirtingand 80’s structured shoulders in sexy, belted suit jackets to 90’s references in leather wrap skirts in rich brown tones.
