BY MALENE BIRGER SPRING 2022 RTW COLLECTION
With her sophomore collection, Maja Dixdotter creates a lineup of contrast made for chic nomads.

The By Malene Birger Spring 2022 RTW collection focuses on silhouette and texture with knits that are less chunky, smooth leather and, unexpectedly, soft velvet.
“For me, it’s a lot about continuation, about building this style universe,” said Maja Dixdotter.
Fall’s hygge mood has been replaced with one that’s more adventurous—minimalism meets Marrakech. A dress with printed frames conjured Yves Saint Laurent in Morocco for me, but that wasn’t on Dixdotter’s radar at all. Folk costumes and the confidence she’s observed in many older people were among her observations, yet she stresses that she prefers her work to be unconnected to specific references or places. “I just want it to be super free,” she said. “I hope [my work] is perceived as bohemian luxe.” Done and done.
