About Nicoline Hansen

Nicoline Hansen latex clothing in the making

I am dedicated to pushing the boundaries of fashion. For me, fashion is an art that helps the wearer express something within: which tribes you belong to and which values you hold dear. I am very interested in finding the sublime. That place in-between “boring” and “too much” that constantly moves in society.

I explore new materials, ways my drawing skills can be used combined with technology like laser cutting, new ways of pattern making and how we use clothes. I want to make sustainable classics that last very long and become beautiful with age. Clothes that make you shine and lets you play and dance.

My studies and explorations have brought me to latex. A sustainable and stretchy material made from rubber trees. I believe it can be used as an alternative to leather – I call it vegan leather.

The results are designed and handmade in Copenhagen, Denmark.
