Malene Birger: Move and Work
08 . 07 . 14
As you know from reading the blog, I’m a huge fan of Danish fashion designer Malene Birger and her book Life and Work: Malene Birger’s Life in Pictures. Needless to say, I was thrilled to learn that she’s not only releasing a new book, Move and Work, but debuting her new endeavor Birger1962 this fall.
Move and Work will feature many photos taken by Malene herself that chronicle her life, her style, and her work. It will also give insight into her new interior and art brand Birger1962 which will debt at Maison & Objet on the 5th of September 2014. This makes me very sad that I’m going home from Paris early now because I’d love to see it in person.
“As a self-defined nomad, continuously searching the globe for new sources of inspiration, her homes are the cool balance of creative expression, her art and cultural influences. There is an interesting harmony in the masterful combinations of past and future; craftsmanship and modernity; maximalism under control. All keywords for the company’s designs and work.”
In addition to living in Copenhagen and London, Malene Birger also lived in Mallorca for six years. Since everyone is still en vacances, I thought I’d post more photos of her gorgeous Mallorca retreat that has since been sold. It’s another one of those houses that makes me want to throw out all the color in my life.
