Nadia Wire Albrechtsen | Central Saint Martins 2017
Nadia Wire Albrechtsen is a Danish designer who graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2017, where she studied textile design. She specialised in knitwear and has gained great experience working for high-end brands such as: Pringle Of Scotland, Peter Pilotto, Stine Goya and Iris Van Herpen. She was also a finalist at the FAD x Missoni competition in 2017, where she was picked by Angela Missoni to show two looks during LFW.
With a passion for colour Nadia Wire Albrechtsen developed her final collection focusing on colour theory. The central aim of the collection ‘Color Intelligence’ is to highlight the importance of colour: How colour can guide and direct and tell its own language. This collection includes linear and irregular stripes from a naive and spontaneous point of view. The fabrics are all created on a fine gauge knitting machine with Italian yarns. The collection is about having as few seams as possible and letting the fabric speak for itself.
