Main Collection by Cecilie Bahnsen

Born just outside Copenhagen, Cecilie Bahnsen attended the Danish Design School before going on to work at John Galliano and Erdem. She launched her namesake label in 2015, and went on to win the Wessel and Vett Fashion Prize in 2016 and was a finalist for the LVMH Prize in 2017. 

A long-time linchpin of Copenhagen Fashion Week, Bahnsen debuted at Paris Fashion Week with a digital show in the autumn of 2020 before hosting a physical show for Autumn/Winter 2022. Her brand is now part of the regular schedule.

Cecilie Bahnsen is an 'everyday couture' and ready-to-wear fashion designer. She creates luxury clothing with a relaxed, timeless style. Celebrating the traditions of fine French fashion and the design culture of Scandinavia, each piece brings forward a contemporary take on femininity. Unique fabrics are hand-designed in Cecilie Bahnsen’s Copenhagen studio to create clothes with unexpected combinations of softness and structure, minimal and maximal, perfect and imperfect.

“For me, there is power and strength in romance and femininity. I make clothes for women to feel comfortable, strong and independent. I started out in London and Paris and the romance and the detail is the inspiration I bring from those cities. But always with the Scandinavian minimalism and ease that is me. It needs to feel effortless.” – Cecilie Bahnsen.


Cecilie Bahnsen and Blēo have brought their creative minds together, merging common values of quality, craftsmanship and a modern approach to design. As a starting point for this ongoing collaboration, the two brands have launched a thoughtfully developed paint collection of 11 classics that serves as a glimpse into Cecilie Bahnsen’s universe.

The first collaboration is called Main Collection. Within this colour palette, ethereal and feminine pinks are presented, offering a sense of romance and delicacy synonymous with the brand. Varied blue hues introduce an element of optimism, while neutral black and white tones provide visual balance, grounding the palette with a nod to Scandinavian minimalism and heritage.

All colours have been carefully developed by Cecilie Bahnsen and Blēo allowing the hues to live effortlessly alongside Bahnsen’s universe. Bahnsen has chosen a selection of colours from the Main Collection for her Headquarters in Copenhagen, in the showroom, and in her private office. These form an enveloping backdrop for her garments, part of the atmosphere of simplicity and beauty that is at the heart of her work.
