Spring / Summer 2010
Fashion designer Trine Jespersen founded Islæt in February 2008. Since then, it has evolved into a serious and an intriguing Danish fashion brand. The head office and showroom of Islæt has since May 2009 been situated in a charming townhouse in Frederiksstaden in the center of Copenhagen.
“We needed more space as the company was growing”, Trine explains and continues: ”We fell in love with this charming building and its surroundings within a heartbeat”.
The philosophy behind Islæt is “Scandinavian simplicity with a twist of London”.
Trine Jespersen is the founder, creative director and designer of the fashion brand Islæt. After graduating in 2003, she worked for a selection of well-established fashion houses including DAY Birger et Mikkelsen, Julie Fagerholt /Heartmade and freelanced at Baum und Pferdgarten.
Trine finds her key inspiration for Islæt in the urban lifestyles of her native country Denmark as well as in London, where she now lives. Trine Jespersen’s designs make Islæt a lasting fashion brand. The clean and simple Scandinavian expression fused with the diverse and colourful London is the cornerstone of Islæt. This merged with chic details and true dedication to the design process as a whole; everything from choice of colours, storytelling, quality and finish, to the final product – matters.
