The Bric-a-brac story
Bric-a-brac was founded in 1991, and is owned by the two designers Malin I Engblom and Christina F Wingås. Starting from a small studio-shop, they have developed to a well-known quality brand, with collections of women, men and children wear, including accessories such as bags, belts, hats and scarves.
Clear-cut simplicity, strolling of to historic and theatrical influences, the form-language allows interpretation and playfulness. Clothes to emphasize your character and mood, unfolding into various personalities: urban, sacral, timid, scenic, romantic or fanciful. Design standing strong on its own, clothes to be integrated with your identity.
Timeless, in the sense of being inspired from both now and then, creating a design that can be looked upon again and again.
Bric-a-brac started as a small fashion project in Stockholm in the early 1990s. After more then 20 years, it is today an established brand with customers far beyond the Swedish fashion region.
Every now and then it is time to reflect upon the past in order to move forward and develop. In this biography, Bric-a-bracs designers, Malin I Engblom and Christina Wingås, share their history and inspirations.
The biography provides insight into the design process, production, clothes and other items from their archives. With this book the designers also want to show their appreciation for collaborators and customers.
