One year after being selected for the accessories contest at ITS, Thomasine Barnekow launched her luxury accessories brand challenging traditional craftsmanship by creating a new style of gloves. The concept of “gloves like soft jewellery” has had many features in the international fashion press: Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Interview, Numéro, L’Officiel, Elle and the brand’s sketches have been exhibited in prestigious museums all around the world: Les Arts Décoratifs in Paris, MoMu Antwerp, LACMA Los Angeles, Dallas Contemporary Texas, MoCA Shanghai, Platform-L Seoul. Couture collaborations are just as important as their ready-to-wear collection with major French fashion houses, the Paris National Opera, cinema productions and contemporary artists. The brand has been sold to international luxury clients, from the very beginning.
Thomasine is now making a big step in her career, opening her first flagship store in Paris. It deserved sitting down with her for a chat about her journey, what the shop will be like and plans for the future.
