This season Gudrun & Gudrun touches on the harsh weather conditions in the North Atlantic and how this impacts on day-to-day life in the Faroe Islands.
The wool in the Faroe Islands is an extremely precious commodity but to maintain the quality they must be able to feed their sheep with the hay they produce. The uncertainty of the weather can have many implications, making daily tasks more demanding. During the dry season the hay-stacks are scattered around the landscape and the way these large opposing objects tremble and perish, highlights the fragility of the Faroese surroundings.
The many sculptural forms resonate with some of the key pieces in this season’s collection. Gudrun & Gudrun draw inspiration from these silhouettes to create some of their most innovative designs to date.
