Freja Beha Erichsen is the lady with noir eyed and the heavy coat that is watching you from the autumn-winter 2013 campaign of Prada, but recently she made a statement that for a while we will not see her as a fashion model. The cause: she passed on the other side of the barricade, the one of the designers.
Lela Becker and Tim Kaeding of L.A. based brand Mother Denim have in fact called the Danish top to collaborate on a capsule collection that will benefit Médecins Sans Frontières – the international medical humanitarian organization known in the U.S. as Doctors Without Borders.
The muse of Karl Lagerfeld chated for her lovestory with colleagues (from rocker Catherine McNeil at the it-girl Arizona Muse) said that its going to be only a “long and prolonged pause, not a drop.” “It’s been a pleasure to work with Tim and Lela [Becker], the founders of Mother, in this collaboration to raise some much-needed funds for Doctors Without Borders,” Erichsen said in an announcement. “We’ve created some beautiful jeans that feel snug and comfortable, yet durable and empowering.”
Today, on hit the web the lookbook from Mother Denim’s capsule collection with model Freja Beha Erichsen.
The basis of the collection of skinny jeans, simple T-shirts and shirts, denim shorts and shirts with long sleeves. To be honest, from Freya I was expected something more interesting – holey sweaters, funny boys’ shirts, jackets, brutal or crazy short shorts.
Hopefully, all of this is yet to come.
