Ivan Grundahl RTW A/W 2013

New (To Me) Designer: Ivan Grundahl

YAY.  I have my life back.  After weeks of hassle, my lift appears to be fully functional again, meaning I have full access to my house and my toys (er, essential equipment …).  During my enforced leisure absence, I stumbled across a designer, new to me, Ivan Grundahl, whose designs I love.  Maybe you’ve heard the name?

There’s an Ivan Grundahl website with not a lot of information on it, tons of images on Google – some of which you are seeing here (fab, huh?), loads of articles and images referenced on Facebook but not a lot, online, to buy.

I found a brief bio on Fall Woman:

IVAN GRUNDAHL has become well known in Scandinavian countries in the last 30 years. He has stores in Denmark, has become well established in Northern Europe and he has also made a notable impact in the United States.
In the last decade, Ivan Grundahl has not only maintained his reputation in Danish fashion, but also internationally, and his influence continues to broaden with every collection.
IVAN GRUNDAHL design looks cool, avant-garde and international. In his urban outfits the designer fuses asymmetrical lines, uneven silhouettes, and the clean-cut architectural shapes of Scandinavia. They are sculpted with generous lines and frivolous ruffles showcasing balance, harmony, and freedom of movement.
IVAN GRUNDAHL is unequalled in his cuts and choice of fabrics. The mix of fabrics, knit, and leather with enormous pocket-bags and a confusion of belts is superb.
Would love to hear from anyone who knows of, has bought from or wears Ivan Grundahl?

    First off I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thank you!

      Ha, I just plough right in, unload the words in my mind and edit afterwards. I suspect everyone has a style that suits them best … why not try a few and have fun finding your own ‘voice’. And thanks for the kind words on my blog. Much appreciated, ;)) Elle

    Have owned and loved a few of his pieces, a coupla timeless trousers that I wore for years before they disintegrated, plus some oversized knit scarves, one floor length I mislaid and still miss, and a slightly shorter one that Im still cherishing. However, having put on a few pounds in later years, sadly I’m no longer finding pieces that fit me. I do like checking his store whenever Im in Copenhagen though, for inspo. … And to pick up the odd scarf. 😀
