Baum und Pferdgarten have always mastered prints and quirkiness, always managed to stand out from the pack of Danish design, and this season was no exception. Quirky made its voice heard, and prints were unmistakable. Yet something was different, new. The sporty feel that has long been part of the brand DNA seemed to take a step back, creating an opening for more romantic and sensual silhouettes. Case in point: the wrap-dress, a Baum und Pferdgarten novelty.
Many of the prints took their cues from the vintage vibe currently sweeping fashion. Like the flower print in water-colourish blue, green, purple, and yellow, reminiscinent of the perfect piece you have been looking for in upscale second-hand settings, but which might, evidently, only be available for first-hand purchase. Or the white floaty cape with blue silk flower applications, or the coat in a transparent fabric with lace applications allowing you to see the checked fabric underneath. Indeed, checks played a big part in the collection, highlighted in a brown and pink Prince of Wales, which came both in a coat and a short skirt with matching shirt with long retro collars. There were also different variation of the gingham check, from a white and burgundy frilled dress to a pale yellow one, with a small ‘BP’ logo in each square. Also available as a knit in a blue and white slipdress.
Last season’s leather bags have evolved into a regular part of Baum und Pferdgarten’s two seasonal main collections, and for this one my favourite was the oversize white handbag.
All in all a beautiful collection, one that definitely will meet if not surpass the expectations of the brand’s many loyal fans.
