Ole Yde, Georg Jensen Team Up

The Danes have paired up to show some of Jensen's archival pieces alongside Yde’s ready-to-wear collection in Paris this week.

SILVER LINING: Copenhagen-based designer Ole Yde has a passion for one of his country’s most famous exports: the renowned silversmith Georg Jensen. Apparently, the feeling is mutual as the company opened its archives for the first time to Yde to accessorize his spring show, presented in August during Copenhagen’s fashion week.

The Danes have paired up again to show the archival pieces in Paris this week that were designed by some of Jensen’s most famous designers, Vivianna Torun Bülow-Hübe and Nanna Ditzel, alongside Yde’s ready-to-wear collection. Jensen plans to choose three of the signature pieces dating from the Forties through the Seventies and reproduce them for its boutiques.
