My name is Christina Barho and I am the Founder and Creative Director of Munich based womenswear label THE SEPT. THE SEPT is a small fashion label dedicated to minimalism and clean design, never at the expense of cool girl ease. A source of timeless pieces that represent purity, quality and comfort - all in a neutral colour palette.
Can you tell us a bit more about the name, The Sept?
I wanted something really simple and clean - which is not that easy, trust me. I love summer fashion, but after a couple of weeks I am already looking forward to wearing Jeans and Cashmere Sweaters again. And September / THE SEPT is the month when this season of mine starts.
What is your main source of Inspiration
I find inspiration everywhere and in everything - architecture, art, friends, magazines, travels.
What is the most important consideration when designing a new collection?
We don’t really do separate seasons, it is more one season that is constantly evolving. So I just design pieces, which in my opinion, should not be missing in a modern minimalist’s wardrobe. As our designs are really clean and timeless, it is all about carefully selected materials and neutral colours.
If you could dress one girl gang in your brand who would it be? Pernille Teisbaek and her girls.
Can you tell us about any exciting plans for the year ahead? Currently, we are in the planning of a travel edit in between the regular seasons. So keep your eyes open.
