For spring, Maja Dixdotter remained loyal to the bohemian minimalist direction she’s set for the house. She established the color palette by gathering “pictures of things that I felt looked fresh,” such as tulips,“to get a vibe and to get into the right feeling that I want the wearer to have when seeing the collection,” the designer explained in the showroom. Tulips also informed the rounded shape on a peplum dress.
A well-worn shearling purse from the 1970s inspired the “messiness”—a relative term at By Malene Birger—of fringe. There are three variations of it on the collection: Deep, long fringe that falls from the cape collar of a long dress; shorter, piled fringe, like the one that runs down the front of a sleeveless white dress, and the more subtle raw edges of a nicely tailored suit. Pops of red gave the offering some zing. Newest in terms of silhouette, was a super roomy suspender jumpsuit that was poetry in motion.
