Julie and Marie Skall presented their spring 2023 show on the terrace of the historic Palm House in Copenhagen’s Botanical Gardens to tunes from The Beatles, Junior Parker, and Nina Simone, whose renditions of “Here Comes the Sun” not only described the idyllic summer day, but the warm optimism of the Skall Studio founders. “It’s eight years ago since we started,” said Marie post show. “We are in such a good place now.”

This collection was inspired by India, where the sisters lived and worked prior to establishing their brand. “We have this really close connection to India and the people, some of them we have known for 25 years and are like family,” Julie said. Two sari-wrapped pieces of Indian cloth were the most direct expressions of the theme. Open weave linens were hand loomed in Bhagalpur, and natural dyes from Indian plants were also used.

The Danish bohemian style has often incorporated Indian references; this, it was once explained to me, is in part because a lot of production was done there, and the exchange extended beyond manufacturing to aesthetics. In Skall Studio’s case, the references are not general, but specific and personal, and the combination of Indian fabrics and Danish knits was a happy one.

This season, some of Skall’s signature “nightgown” dresses featured subtle embroideries, and some were accessorized with straw totes embroidered with the brand’s signature shell. The models wore velvet slip-ons or Mary-Janes, and there was a slipper-like softness to the collection in sync with the Skalls’ mission to tread lightly on the earth and design responsibly. You can count on the brand for a great blazer and pants, and they were on offer, as usual, but spring was mostly a dress story. More streamlined than their popular boho frocks was a take on the LBD, v-necked with fringe at the center front and hem. An interesting development, seen on a handkerchief halter and maxi, was the use of openwork of the kind that you might find on vintage bed linens or lingerie. It added a delightful airiness to this sunny collection.
