Meet founder and creative director of Rabens Saloner
”The essence of Rabens Saloner is the feeling that everything is made by heart. The garments are often handmade and hand-dyed using traditional craftsmanship methods, which is why not two tie-dye pieces are identical.”– Birgitte Raben, creative director
Modernity and traditional craft come together in an ever-evolving conversation at Rabens Saloner. Founded in 2007 by creative director Birgitte Raben, the house has become synonymous with contemporary, languid elegance dipped in swirls and splashes of colour. With a design team based in Copenhagen and an outpost in Bali where Birgitte spends six months out of the year, Rabens Saloner captures an adventurous eclecticism infused with a sensuous rock ‘n’ roll spirit.
Collaborating with a close-knit team of local Balinese artisans and dyers, authentic craftsmanship is distilled through Birgitte’s confident East-meets-West lens and translated into a wardrobe for today and beyond. The brand’s signature tie-dyes continually push creative boundaries, done entirely by hand with only the human eye as a guide, making each piece completely unique to the wearer.
Love, ease and abundance are the foundations for Birgitte’s visual language, celebrating individuality and the space to dream. Collections innately cater to the AM to PM wardrobe, where effortlessness and creativity collide in draped silhouettes that bring a sense of informality to the powerfully feminine.
