SABINA SÖDERBERG, a Swedish Fashion Design Label based in London, is a ready-to-wear label founded just in 2015. The label focused on contemporary handmade prints that later on are digitally printed on textiles. SABINA SÖDERBERG shows a minimal and clean aesthetic in her collections and let the prints take the attention; and I was happy to work with her for her latest SS/16 collection via Oxygen Models.

She also has years behind her of experience from various brands and departments ranging from the well known brands Tommy Hilfiger and HouseofSunny to high end Louise Körner and Haute Couture label Ralph&Russo.

“What were your inspirations?” – E.
Inspirations for this label from a smal subgroup in Southern Niger in Africa called “Wodaabe People”. Wodaabe means ” The People Of The Taboo” and is often translated as the people who respect taboos.

These people own almost nothing, yet they are known for their amazing hand made embroidery, using the money to build schools. Wodaabe people are nomadic cattle herders and every year they follow the rain from south to north in order to get food and water. Inspired from their everyday use of materials they bring with them when traveling, such as ropes they make beds and baskets of.

“I see, so that’s where this sense of perseverance and preciseness comes into the collection.” – E.
They place great emphasis on beauty and charm, especially the men of the Wodaabe people. Every mornig the men dress up and put on their make up, which they make themself from clay. Every year in September there is a festival called Guérewol where the women choose a man to marry. The women pick the men that are the best dancers, tallest, have white teeth and big eyes, because that is Wodaabe ‘s beauty ideal. The men wear long and colourful capes with embroidery.
And take a look into the collection as well as the couture collection too, it’s really great. A truly innovative way to bring sports into high fashion that isn’t too masculine but not too exposing at the same time.
