Jensen’s muse for resort was actress Paulette Goddard in her later years as a rich, bejeweled widow, hanging out with Andy Warhol. Jensen worked abstract prints of playing cards, hearts, spades, clubs and dice onto sleeveless tennis dresses and Forties-style crepe de chine dresses, flat-front trousers and oversize mannish coats. “I imagined her casually playing cards at The Factory, and once saw a picture of her wearing one of Andy Warhol’s coats,” said the Danish designer, who also admired Goddard’s jewels, reimagining them as prints and stickers that will be sold alongside the collection. Customers can stick Goddard’s “jewels” on the clothes, and tear them off when they tire of them.
