Samsøe & Samsøe was founded in Copenhagen’s Latin Quarter in 1993 by the Samsøe brothers, and now resides in an old industrial building in the heart of Nørrebro, probably the most lively and culturally diverse neighborhood in the city. It was Samsøe & Samsøe’s strong brand that encouraged Peter Sextus, CEO and his business partner Per Ulrik Andersen to buy the company in 2000.
Today Samsøe & Samsøe creates beautifully tailored menswear and womenswear collections in luxury quali- ties such as silk, suede, cashmere and Japanese shirt fabrics. The design is based on core values that Samsøe & Samsøe share with classic Scandinavian design traditions: simplicity, sustainability and quality.
Samsøe & Samsøe finds inspiration in everyday life and the feel of a truly Scandinavian season. The ap- proach is simple and honest; a celebration of dedication, craftsmanship and authenticity. Shapes are iconic, the silhouettes are based on clean cuts, details subtle while yarns and fabrics generate a quiet sense of luxury.
Sophisticated and always wearable. Approachable and graceful. A democratic ideal inspired by the beauty of classic Danish design. Tonals reflect the colours of Nordic summer – inviting and graceful night black and stark whites are timeless and contemporary. Utility inspired yet elegant, a casual and uncomplicated look for both day and night, work and play.
