Darling buds

Inspired by the world of flowers and the floral designs of Finnish ceramic artist Birger Kaipianen, the concept of buds coming into bloom is the common thread running through the Oleana AW 19 collection.

At the same time innovative and in keeping with  traditional Norwegian craftmanship as well as Oleanas heritage, the collection is an appreciation of both the powerful and the soft, the pioneering and the timeless, the poetic and the everyday. We invite you to take a trip from seed to flower with our darling buds.

Linking

The Norwegian word for linking is ‘kettling’, although this is originally a German word meaning ‘chain together’. On the round linking machines, linkers attach the front and back sections of the garment together at the shoulders. They patiently thread each individual stitch onto each needle, ensuring that once the first section is on, the corresponding stitch for the second section meets it. The machine then ‘links’ these together with a chain stitch. The same process applies to the trims down the front of the garment and around the neckline.

Our ambition is to produce some of the most beautiful clothes in the world, by focusing on high quality and excellent design. This requires advanced techniques, lots of handwork and the most skilled people.
