Established in Copenhagen’s Latin Quarterback in 1993, Scandi favourites Samsøe Samsøe epitomises the brand’s simple, understated approach to design and meticulous attention on material, and craftsmanship.
In its relatively short life, Samsøe Samsøe has transformed from a modest jewellery brand operating out of Copenhagen to an international fashion house. Rooted in a rich heritage of Scandinavian design, the brand has a cult following for simple, functional, modern clothing. Combining the utilitarian energy of Copenhagen street style with Scandinavia’s timeless creative spirit. Its collections typically defy fleeting seasonal trends, instead drawing on Denmark’s renowned design traditions with an identifiable Nordic blueprint.
Launching Samsøe Samsøe collection, we sat down with the Head Designers for both men’s and womenswear to discuss the creative process, inspiration, and more.
Thankyou for taking the time to talk to us today! Tell us a little bit about yourselves…
My name is Gitte Wetter, and I am the Head of menswear for Samsøe Samsøe. My journey with the brand has been long since I have been working for the company for the past 14 years. Tt almost feels like Samsøe Samsøe has become my second family. Before that, I work several years with my own label and for other brands in the industry.
My name is Meme Marta Fagiuoli originally from Italy but grew up in several countries such as the US & UK, I relocated in Copenhagen about 10 years ago to work as Head of Design for another Scandinavian Brand. Having held my former role for many years, I felt it was time to challenge myself with a new opportunity, and that’s why I started at Samsøe Samsøe 2 years ago.
