Here are a few things that happened in 1869: Tolstoy's War and Peace was published, Jesse James robbed his first bank, and the Copenhagen boutique Birger Christensen was founded. Only one of those is relevant to cool girl wardrobes everywhere inspired by the fashion of the 60s, and nope, it's not all 1205 pages (!) of Leo's book. Flash-forward a century or so to 2018, and that same Danish institution is giving two Scandi stylists a chance to craft a range of dresses that are colourful, decadent and feminine.
Those stylists are Jeanette Friis and Thora Valdimars, and the brand boasting those dresses is ROTATE Birger Christensen. Since launching 2018, the label has garnered many fans thanks to Friis and Valdimar's distinct aesthetic, inspired by the fashion of the 60s but ideal for any number of modern occasions. As their brand continues to grow, FLANNELS thought: It's International Women's Day this week, we love this brand, it's run by two successful and stylish women... Why don't we reach out to Thora and Jeanette for a wee chat?
