Baum und Pferdgarten

Check out the hottest fashion made in Denmark. The brand Baum und Pferdgarten was started in 1999 after the two designer's Rikke Baumgarten and Helle Hestehave (translated to German: Pferdgarten) graduation. Within eight years Baum und Pferdgarten grew from a mini-independent-label to a brand much sought-after by fashionistas worldwide. Today the brand is available in over 20 countries. Carefully selected shops and department stores in metropolises like New York, Copenhagen, London, Paris, Stockholm, Tokyo or Hong Kong offer the collections. The philosophy of the brand is to stand out of the masses but don't become too commercial. The fashion is more a reaction to the usual trends and no compromises are made regarding quality and aesthetics which reflects in the choice of fabrics as well as in the high-class manufacturing and the love for details. The designers love to play with the contrast of feminine and masculine elements and focus on luscious colours and uncommon cuts. The clothes are wearable yet daring, sexy but not sexistic and give women the chance to express themselves individually by offering a combination of classic styles and avant-garde pieces. Baum und Pferdgarten never misses a touch of humor and irony and could be defined as opinionated playful. Pragmatic but with a sharp look for detail and playfulness.
