Designer Anne Sofie Renkwitz Madsen who made our first SAMPLEPANTS

Anne Sofie Renkwitz Madsens has designed the first 7 SAMPLEPANTS for SECRETSAMPLES, which is modern, minimalistic and focuses on the minor details.

The women’s styles are feminine, modern and form-fitting.

The Men’s collection is based on some of today’s modern male trends, where comfort and modernism is combined.

The unisex models have a fit, which goes for both genders. They suit most needs, and targets the style and outfit the customer wishes.

Kaja Weiss Olsen, designer for SECRETSAMPLES at the PAMOJA collection. Wearing a SAMPLEPRODUCT in Aarhus. Graduated from TEKO in 2015 as a fashion designer.

Kaja has worked on adjustments and new styles for SAMPLEPANTS and the SS16 collection PAMOJA – both collection with Mai Schjødt Andreasen.

“The process on the SAMPLEPANTS collection have been long, and communication have been essential between production and SECRETSAMPLES. It has been clear how small changes can be crucial to the overall experience.

PAMOJA is the first collection I have been making together with the SECRETSAMPLES team. It has been busy but also very educational. To work in a bigger team gives lot of different opinions to consider, which can slow down the development but in advantage gives more completed designs.

My approach to this collaboration has been to make good quality clothes that are well fitted, and to make it desirable through interesting cuts and details.

What has been the most giving in the process was the opportunity to work with new people, especially the other designer who has been good to reflect and work with. Another good experience was when we received our first samples of PAMOJA.

The interaction between African textiles and Scandinavian design is interesting. As it is an innovative way of working with fashion and it kind of combine the warmth of African culture with the more clean and simple Scandinavian look. I like to work with prints because it gives a garment the extra detail that makes it exceptional.

I find the concept behind SECRETSAMPLES quite innovative, and I like the fact that the products are produced after request and that waste fabric are used in other products. To have the consumer decide their own fabrics is a good way to interact and gives a stronger and more sustainable relation to their clothes.”

Experience
2014: Intern at Surface to Air. Working with inspiration, trends, print layout and style development.

2011: Intern at Veto. Working with drawing illustrative working sketches, layout for marketing material and print design.

Mai has worked on adjustments and new styles for SAMPLEPANTS and the SS16 collection PAMOJA – both collection with Kaja Wiess Olsen.

“It has been exciting to be involved in starting the new spring / summer collection from the beginning, where we have had a say in which products should be included as well as the product design.  We have had many ideas for new designs throughout while working on the PAMOJA collection, which made it difficult to choose the final styles.

There are many things to consider when designing new products. The products should ideally be available in various of materials, which is a challenge concerning the design and what structurally possible for the various qualities.  It is therefore extremely important that the final design is suitable for all the different materials, it will be offered in.

Working in the design of the new collection has given me many great experiences, both personally and professionally.  The development of the selected designs for the PAMOJA collection has been challenging in many ways.  Not everything turned out how we wished at the start, which taught us a lot and we will take this experience with us to the next collection.

Working with Kaja, who is more qualified and experienced than me, has also taught me a lot.

Working with Danish design combined with African textiles has been exciting because it is something different that really stands out from the crowd. It has been exciting to be involved in coming up with the different ways to combine the two styles, so that the consumer can create their own unique product.

Once we made the new designs, we have focussed on the idea that the consumer of selected designs has the possibility to “sample”, so that the products become more unique to suit the consumer.”
