SANDERMANN is a new Danish womenswear brand, based on a concept of using only local waste materials with a zero-waste approach. “Stories of Stranded Lives” is inspired by lighthouses on the west coast of Denmark.
Visiting these sites made one think about the tough coastal life in the 1800s and the living conditions for families related to sailors. Lost men they would never see again. Waking up to screams from the mist and broken ships on the beach after a storm. Wrecked things washing upon the shore as the silence increases. Diving into this piece of history, we thought about the contrast of then and now, as we saw a beach full of plastic waste. We let deadstock materials and trimmings, stranded in their own lifecycle, shape this collection with wavy lines, dip dyed knits and voluminous silhouettes.
