Known for her ongoing romance with textile developments both fragile and tenacious, think hand-dipped silks or hi-tech sporting materials, Trine Linedegaard, a Danish designer living in London, is peeling back the layers with her third collection for her self-titled line, which just so happens to be rooted in west African fabrics.
Trine Lindegaard worked with a family of traditional Ghanaian weavers to develop a vibrant new line in menswear, which will be on show in London in June. Some of the fabrics used by Trine Lindegaard are hand-picked and traditionally weaved in Ghana and the Ivory Coast.
Inspired by the wonderful geometrics of the Kita, an Akan fabric, Lindegaard met the Kwevi family – Ghanaian weavers who've been making this fabric 1968. Lindegaard and her team worked closely with the family to develop a vibrant and refreshing addition to the long line of Akan fabrics used in her Spring/Summer 2013 and Autumn/Winter 2013 collections, later adding athletic cuts and active embellishments which make for a modern, wearable collection.
