A high-end collection where the principles of Avant - Garde are optimized

The collection contains both minimalistic and complex aspects of shape and form.
The square in fold, a returning theme, has for SS11 been reworked. The result is creations with futuristic aspects and preferences of abstract bug-like creatures with an exciting feminine undertone.

More Information about her and the brand below:

bARBARA í gONGIN graduated in 1996 from Denmarks Designschool Institute of Unica Design. She has been involved in many design-related activities and has received several design awards and grants. Furthermore Barbara Ì Gongini has been a member of several design adjudicating committees etc.
In 2008 Barbara Ì Gongini was awarded a work-grant from the Danish Arts Agency a unit of the Danish Ministry of Culture.

bARBARA í gONGIN is pushing boundaries in ethical fashion. The collections - androgynous futuristic and simplistic (with subtle intricacies) bears no signs of compromising style for the sake of sustainability. Barbara’s Nordic roots are evident in her uncomplicated designs and largely monochromatic shades - ”black and white and some shades of grey have always been my palette.”

Strong geometric cuts to soft ovoid silhouettes focusing on the versatility of individual garments enabling them to be worn however the customer wishes – is the core importance of the collections. ”the whole concept is about using things in different ways keeping the form as open as possible so the customer keeps an interaction with their particular style”.

bARBARA í gONGIN is a Faroese brand based in Denmark.

The aim of the company is to create Nordic clothing based on a conceptual approach to the process where experiments with forms provide the setting for the visual motive in the design.

Barbara í Gongini creates clothing which is at the leading edge of the trade. Barbara í Gongini furthermore participates very actively in the artistic debate in the Nordic countries. During the work interdisciplinary co-operation with other artists within music photography film etc is emphasised and this co-operation nourishes inspiration during the design process itself.

bARBARA í gONGIN comprises two lines of women’s wear: bARBARA í gONGIN main line and THE BLACK LINE a diffusion line.
The collection represents these two extreme points but must be seen as a coherent whole.

bARBARA í gONGINI – Is the creative part of the two lines where play and experiments are tested based on varying themes and it is here that art and design meet.
The results of the above process form the basic elements in the other part of the collection and present the subtle profile of the brand.
