The small collection that started a movement
InWear was born in 1969 on the streets of Copenhagen, from the young mind of Niels Martinsen, who aged 20, co-owned one of the cities hottest nightclubs. Enthralled with fashion and in touch with what young, hip crowds wanted to wear, he and his promising designer girlfriend at the time, Kirsten Teisner, decided to start their own fashion label. Armed with 6 rolls of jersey material they created a small collection of dresses and shirts for women. The brand was an overnight success and tapped into how this new generation of women wanted to be dressed; modern, feminine with a laid back sense of style. They grew to become one of the hottest labels in the '80s and '90s and was a precursor to the aspirational Scandinavian-chic movement we see today. In Spring 2014, the label was purchased by multi-brand fashion group, DK Company, who helped rekindle the love for this label after a quieter 00s by taking it back to its roots, InWear had a successful revival. Today, they have a large online shop and over 60 stores across the region. With over 50 years of experience, the company has cemented itself as a Scandi-cool stalwart within the fashion industry.
