Dear friend of La Bagatelle,

They are one of my favourite couples because they have shown that it is possible to meet profound and life changing love later in life. I knew both Camilla Larsson and Henrik Bülow years before they knew each other. Today it is inspiring to be around them, because they manage to make the other one lighter and deeper at the same time. Henrik is a renouned fashion photographer and Camilla is a stunning stylist, so when they offered to shoot a few of Camilla’s favourite La Bagatelle pieces on their holiday I leaped at the chance. The destination was the epic and historic hotel The Oriental in Bangkok where the stylish Danish author Suzanne Brøgger hung out when she was young, and where my oldest daughter learnt how to swim many years ago. In other words it is a wonderful old world kind of place full of stories that make it hard to leave. I hope you enjoy the little string of images they sent home.

For more than half a year I have collected just enough vintage rolls of striped cotton as well as a few checkered ones with just enough fabric for one jacket. All become super soft with wear. I have collected them in other to do a small edit of them for Ida and Beate Jackets and they are all online as of now. It is such a thrill for me to discover just the right roll of fabric and seeing it turn into a very special jacket.  

Lots of love,
Malene Malling
