Aysen Bitzer, former front woman and creative head of the 0039italy brand, has developed a new line under the name AYBI, which launched during Berlin Fashion Week in July 2017. Even with her new concept, Aysen Bitzer is staying true to her core areas of expertise: blouses and dresses. “AYBI is a dream come true for me. Modern women, who are often mothers and businesswomen, love a look that is simple, wearable but always chic at the same time – and that brings out their personality. Ideally, they can carry this look through to evening activities, which is exactly what AYBI stands for”, says Aysen Bitzer.
Together with the main line, AYBI also launched its first capsule collection in cooperation with DISNEY. In 1937, the American animated musical fantasy film “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” was originally released. To celebrate its 80th birthday this year, the film’s graphics were transformed into various prints, including appliqués and frills, in a romantic collection of blouses and dresses, some of which are available for girls, too. “The collaboration with DISNEY is perfect. The world-famous DISNEY themes represent dreams, romance, joy, and happiness, and create an extra portion of playfulness, which perfectly matches AYBI”, romanticises Bitzer.
Launched in Fall 2014, BRITT SISSECK is a women's ready-to-wear collection, specialized in women’s high end shirts and blouses, that finds confidence in contrasts of masculine and feminine, strength and softness, structure and fluidity, classic and modern. Each piece proposes a fresh balance of opposing elements, while embodying a signature sensuality and ease.
BRITT SISSECK does not conform to particular season and each blouse is designed for timeless relevance. Every season may carry a print or two which defines the particular season, and seasonal pieces appear in every collection,
but the essence and core of the brand is that the newness of the collection is that there is nothing new about it. We want to convey a trust in the product, and for the end consumer to know and understand that we have developed the best possible version of a blouse to match their personal demand.
We are idealists, seekers, dreamers and hard workers.
We create clothing for women in unique designs and uncompromising quality. It is embedded in our DNA to be curious and always on the lookout for new ways to surprise and innovate, even if it means going against the current. We believe in trying something new, doing things different, and making it your own. Our universe is made up by soft rays of light and striking prints, by vibrant colours and unique patterns. We love art, in all shapes and forms, abstract or figurative.
We are young and on our own. Guided by intuition and will, we take great pride in our independence and enjoy the freedom we have been given, by not following rules or standards. Our team holds distinct dynamic personalities and a high level of professionalism. Copenhagen is our base, but we reach out globally. For inspiration, for new ideas, cultures and friends, CECILIE copenhagen has no other home, than the entire world.

The beauty of long-standing craftsmanship is reborn with the natural materials and handmade techniques we adopt to create unique goods.

Handcrafted with exceptional care, they are best described as art objects. Look after them with the utmost care and they will love you forever!!!
But there is more… All Kooreloo creations have a secret; when opened, an aura of dynamism emanates from each bag. A rich inner world emits a sparkling personality!

Every little detail in our creations unveils a part of the story we want to tell…from the ancient-inspired lining to the colorful embroideries embodying Athena’s aura... Her aura transforms into something new, taking new art forms over time…It is never permanent. It evolves. It revitalizes everything in its path. It constantly changes as art does...

A creative path through ever-changing geographic latitudes to translate the charm of visionary landscapes in timeless pieces of clothing. The “Stefania Esse” collections tell about the beauty of nature which tints the most different places, celebrating the authenticity and rareness of natural elements, symbols of endless source of life.
A tale that starts from a renewed interpretation of an iconic garment: the cape. A cult in the fashion world, the main element -- along with extra large scarves and oversize kaftans -- of a limited collection made up of classic pieces, yet with a metropolitan flavour. A line where loose and embracing shapes are dominant, which doesn’t follow any season or trend, but rather creates from scratch a new, non-classifiable identity.
Its fulfillment is the result of a joint effort and overlap between art and fashion, between handicraft and innovation. This synergy is really highlighted by the use of precious materials, such as cashmere and silk, enriched by “made in Italy” embroidery.
Greentee was founded in 2015 by Darinka Radenkovic, with a vision to create high-quality, sustainable and timeless garments that inspire and give confidence to women throughout their everyday lives.
Having already proven that creativity and ethical supply-chain can operate simultaneously with her previous labels, dudadoo and Captain Skirt, Darinka and her partner Hein Gnutzmann aim to take the next step towards a more sustainable future with greentee, steering away from mass-consumption.
First and foremost, Greentee stands for style. However, style should be enjoyed with a clear conscience. Therefore, all Greentee products are made out of 100% organic cotton. The cotton is ethically sourced in Europe and the production takes place in Poland – also under fair and ethical conditions.
Many of the companies that Greentee works with comply with recognized eco-standards and are certified. Even the Greentee packaging is constructed of 100% organic and sustainable apple paper. However, all of this should already be the minimum standard within the industry...
Untitled Barcelona is a highly conceptual and exclusive label, each piece is unique and handmade. We focus primarily on creating handbags with original painted canvas, natural leathers and cotton. These canvases are an integral part in the conceptualization and realization of the bags, as they are authentic works of art that several contemporary artists produce exclusively for us. The acrylic paintings are treated with a strong varnish to extend their life and function; however they are delicate pieces and must be treated with love and care.
Untitled Barcelona is characterized by the combination of colors and textures, and this distinguishing quality becomes the main feature of our visual language.
Combining art with a daily handbag comes from the need to make art design and to put art on the streets so it can have its own transformation. Why must art be enclosed behind the walls of museums and galleries?
“Art as a collective message”.
