Why choose a pencil dress
No matter when you need to use your pencil dress, we have a varied selection to ensure that you can find a pencil dress just to your liking.
Pencil dresses traditionally apply as the more 'sexy' dresses as they highlight the whole female figure. Although the dresses sit tight and focus on the classic hourglass figure, the pencil dress can easily be used both in everyday life as well as for festive occasions; we have pencil dresses in many different looks and with a focus on different things.
A large part of our pencil dresses in vintage style have an included belt to further focus on the waist. Other details include that the dresses may have small wrinkle details that hide the belly area, or the dresses may have other details such as wrap, collar or various cutouts. Thus, there is guaranteed to always be a vintage style pencil dress that suits you.

Denmark's best selection of high-end retro dresses
Granted. It is a bit charged and subjective when we claim that we have Denmark's best selection of high-end dresses in the retro style, but even though the announcement is subjective, it can easily be true anyway.

Why do we call our dresses "Vintage" & "Retro"?
As you may have noticed, we use both the terms 'vintage' and 'retro' for our dresses, but is there really a difference between a vintage and a retro dress?
It is actually there, however, there is not a clear definition, so we will here try to give ours.
Vintage refers to clothing produced in about the year 1920 and up to 1980 - this can be homemade or in small or large productions. Since our dresses are not produced during this time period, we describe the dresses as "vintage inspired", as that is exactly what they are. They are inspired by the fashion of the decades 1940, 1950 og 1960.
The term Retro came into being in the 1960s and refers to something from "the past" - and since our dresses are just inspired by the fashion from 1940, 1950 and 1960, we also describe them as Retro dresses.
Actually, there is the term "Repro", which is probably the term that best describes our dresses, as repro comes from "reproduced" - ie dresses that have been produced again.
However, we know that not many of our customers use the term Repro, but instead describe our dresses as "Retro dresses" or "Vintage dresses" and therefore we have chosen to do the same.
Are you looking for more than just a dress?
A retro dress can easily be combined with shoes with a modern look. In fact, something beautiful, exciting and interesting can actually emerge in the dynamics between the dress's stylish vintage style and a pair of brand new, modern shoes or stilettos.
However, it is also beautiful to walk the retro plank all the way out and wear retro clothes from head to toe. If this is your plan, you can find all types of retro clothing with us.
