Designing has been a life long dream of Ole’s, his creations come from a very personal place. He started his career because of his passion and this is reflected in his creations.
It’s not so much about specific fairy tales but more so about conveying a dream or a fantasy.
Georg Jensen silver is as relevant today as it was when it first became known as the one of the worlds finest and that’s because of the integrity, originality and high quality of its products. This has been an inspiration for Ole.
Some of Ole’s biggest inspirations come from 18th century French art, literature and personalities such as Marie Antoinette whose image covers a whole wall in the YDE boutique in Copenhagen.
It made some people in the industry take even more notice of Ole. It was a very small step but a step in the right direction.
YDE makes season less creation. The label stands for style rather than trend. Some of the inspiration may come from the past but it’s definitely for the modern, romantic and stylish woman.
Some of Ole’s creations are very intricate and they are best displayed in black and white, this also has to do with the Danish minimalist and clean sense of aesthetics.
He was inspired by film noir, Marlene Dietrich, divas, spies and private eyes. (FW10)
It is definitely an artistic expression of Ole’s world and his interests.
