Baum und Pferdgarten
Founded in 1999 by Helle Hestehave and Rikke Baumgarten and based in the centre of Copenhagen Baum und Pferdgarten is a collection of beautiful and interesting contrasts. It is more theatrical than quirky, always immaculately constructed and the essence of Scandinavian cool. No word of a lie everyone working at The Hambledon (boys excepted) cites a Baum piece as a wardrobe favourite.
Pre Fall, titled 'Odd Constellations' is one of the very best collections this season. Just saying. Inspired by stylist Ibrahim Kamara and photographer Jackie Nickerson, it is all about muddled up compositions, disparate elements with nods to both town and country and relaxed Summer and more formal Autumn dressing. Ruffles are married to checks, cottons are worn with silver foil, extra long dresses layered with cropped jackets.
AW Main is classic Baum, mixing up super ladylike organza, tulles and florals with chunky knits and outsize check fake fur coats in a palette of orange, brown and taupe. Definitely get involved in the Rupert the Bear style bum bag. Super nice.
Pre AW19 and AW19 1st Drop collections are now available instore and online.
