“The Cactus, The Bear, and The Mountain” is one fashion collection that wears its folklore on its sleeve—and headdress. Designed by Tine Winther Rysgaard and Trine Maja Kristoffersen for the Innovating Sustainable Fashion Show in Copenhagen on Thursday, the trio of ecological knitwear draws heavily from Native American icons, particularly the totem pole, which also inspired the modular nature of the garments.

ONE WITH NATURE

Rysgaard and Kristoffersen, who took second place at the the runway show and design contest, created the three outfits in only 11 weeks, knitting every stitch themselves by machine and hand. Creativity is an inherent part of the duo’s design ethos, both visually and conceptually: Each piece can be freely mixed and matched, worn together or apart.
