The fall/winter 2015 Norse Projects womenswear line is a sleek, minimalist debut collection presented by photographer Stephen Mann in an androgynous lookbook. The collection will fair well with female fans who have been working pieces from the menswear line into their wardrobes for some time.
Shot in Denmark's Fritz Hansen factory, the lookbook communicates the almost utilitarian collection that has an understated androgynous element to it, due in part to the use of menswear lines edited with a feminine twist.
Heavy on knitwear and crisp, long layered shirts, the fall/winter 2015 Norse Projects womenswear collection is a statement on the new wardrobe staples for women that is a clever homage to menswear staples.
This is the first womenswear collection from Norse Projects and will be hitting stores in July 2015.
