Billie & Me is inspired by the great sensation of getting dressed-up and ready to go. “I always wanted to pursue the next level of my business by bringing my aesthetics into a full pret - a - porter collection” says Benedicthe Bjerke of her new line Billie & Me. “The name felt fresh and alluring, and reflecting the light - at - heart spirit that we wanted to invoke, something that we felt had been missing in the contemporary market” says partner and co - founder Irene Møller.
Bjerke and Møller, found a common ground in feeling inspired to create an alternative to both traditional basics and fast - fading trends. Together they set out to create a line that could fill the gap, by bringing back the simple fun of dressing up and feeling at ease about it. The upcoming fall collection was inspired by the meeting between oplulent party staples with a distinct and modern flair, combined with reworked wardrobe classics. Equal parts feminine and cool, the line is built around the idea of dressed - up clothes for special moments. Though it contains a few casual items, most of the looks — in delicate prints, lace and velvet – call for a sense of occasion.
