McVERDI, Danish design since 1987 – 33 years with McVERDI.
Lotte Honoré creates collections with the greatest knowledge around customers’ needs and wishes. McVERDI is a slow fashion brand with two annual well-crafted collections. Good qualities, years of great knowledge and big know-how of the female body and how clothes should look and feel – All this gives the special, cool McVERDI feeling. It’s about feeling comfortable, true to yourself – and well-dressed. It’s almost a lifestyle, a McVERDI lifestyle.
The sewing machine is running, the phone rings all the time, clothes for upcoming collections gets ready for photography and large packages are carried in and out of the headquarter. We are always busy and we love it! Our workflow in McVERDI can vary from department to department, but the advantage of being close and being a small company is that I (Cathrine) can be hugely inspired by looking at Lotte’s design process/ workflow. For example, when Lotte chooses colours and materials, I start to get ideas immediately. What kind of images and campaigns do we want to create and so on. At McVERDI, we are therefore always in a creative process and we get many ideas – all the time. It’s so cool! We have the freedom to create as long as we have fun and create results.
This autumn we have a denim collection called WORK. A collection which consists of 12 styles. Women in different ages were dressed in denim, checks and corduroy – A McVERDI denim universe was created:
IT’S DENIM – IT’S WORK AND IT’S SUPER COOL!
