I worked closely with designer Elisabeth Benonisen and her accessories brand Studio EBN as a design and sustainability consultant between 2015 and 2018. During this time, I also styled most of her lookbooks, including the one pictured below.
Studio EBN was founded in 2013 by Norwegian designer Elisabeth Benonisen. After working with designer Giles Deacon in London, her roots lured her back to her hometown, where the brand is based.
The concept evolved from the idea of using material connected to the region, and developing sustainable premium accessories that also tell a story of life in the North.
This led to handbags and accessories, with the choice of using fish leather as a sustainable and exotic option.
The SS 16 collection features handmade locks made from excess local marble. The patchwork clutch Valberg consists of surplus leather, that together with small accessories aim for minimal production waste.
Studio EBN offers a selection of bags that are both versatile and timeless. Instead of basing the collections strictly on seasons that will eventually expire, new designs and colours are gradually added in an organic manner.The result is slow fashion with substance and proximity to nature and origin.
