From The Killing to The Snow Queen Candy Floss Dress!
Let’s all run away to the Paris funfair, in the shadow of Monmartre, in this perfect incarnation of a Snow Princess dream of a winter dress by cult Faroese queens of yarn – Gudrun and Gudrun. This ethereally beautiful winter fashion star is for girls who really do believe in fairytales and flying over chimney pots as modern day Mary Poppins.. well you never know. Constructed from the softest mohair, with a tulle underskirt, this wil o wisp stick of freshly spun fashion candy floss is just the ticket for the modern Alice-in-Wonderland.
The dress is the work of the two brilliantly creative Gudrun’s who inhabit a faraway island in the Faroes. Together, they conjure up marvellous, gossamer, luxe-heirloom conscious knitwear, inspired by the colours, textures and environmental challenges of their remote, North Atlantic, island home, where wool is a very precious commodity indeed. Everything these creative fashion mavericks dares to create is made from from by-products of the local food chain, from wool to fish skins, so there is absolutely no waste – and look how arrestingly beautiful the result is?
From Food Waste to Ethereal Winter Fashion Star
This is knitwear made from waste and elevated to an art form for the most discerning, caring fashion lover; not to mention the odd sociopath detective, namely Sarah Lund, in the Danish drama The Killing, who wore Gudrun and Gudrun’s snowflake sweater to chase after a few dark fairytales of her own, and promptly turned this form- fitting ice queen knit it into a cult object of desire in Denmark and the UK, where the series was a huge hit. One of the Gudrun’s says she can just see Bjork in the dress and we have to agree, it would be perfect for the extrovert Icelandic Princess of experimental rock and pop.
