By Malene Birger Fashion for Women
Creative Director Christina Exsteen aimed to channel the confidence and powerful attitude of Scandinavian women for By Malene Birger's Fall '17 runway. Seen at the show, this striped 'Fridari' blouse is made from washed-satin and cut with notched lapels and dramatic oversized cuffs. The split hem is perfect for half tucking into a high-waisted skirt.
Tapping into this season's heritage trend, By Malene Birger's 'Belliz' pants are woven in a monochrome houndstooth pattern. This knitted pair flares out from the waist into a flattering wide-leg shape and has subtle side slit pockets for a laid-back feel. Wear yours with heeled boots to instantly elongate your frame.
For Fall '17, By Malene Birger draws inspiration from Michelle Pfeiffer's fearless role in the film Scarface. Made from crepe in a rich forest-green hue, this wrap-effect 'Akumal' dress has a high neckline and long metallic woven cuffs encrusted with light-catching crystals. We love how it turns to reveal a split maxi hem - essential for ease of movement when styled with vertiginous heels.
For By Malene Birger's Fall '17 collection, Creative Director Christina Exsteen designs pieces with strong, determined women in mind - her muse being Michelle Pfeiffer's character in Scarface. This 'Nabista' camisole is made from contrasting panels of silk crepe de chine and plush velvet and has adjustable straps for a customized fit. Wear yours with a pencil skirt or jeans.
Billowy blouses are so comfortable, but in a way that still feels elegant and feminine. Cut from ivory chiffon, By Malene Birger's 'Bolivian' style has a V-neckline framed with a satin stand-up collar and tasseled ties that create a keyhole. This piece is gathered at the shoulders and yoke to reveal an elegant drape through the back.
By Malene Birger's collections celebrate powerful and sophisticated women with a playful side. Fitted with a sporty, designer-stamped waistband, this 'Lallah' maxi skirt is cut from lightweight chiffon and pleated for movement. The lining intentionally hits just above the knee to reveal a hint of skin.

The season's take on utility dressing should be polished and refined - By Malene Birger's bomber jacket works for day but feels elegant enough for evening. One of our favorite pieces from the Pre-Fall '17 collection, this plush velvet style has ribbed trims that cinch you in at the waist. The slightly shrunken fit looks cool teamed with everything from midi skirts to jeans.

By Malene Birger's Creative Director Christina Exsteen is often inspired by her travels - the intricate crystal and bead embellishments on this 'Leosa' dress draw on artisanal designs from Marrakesh. It's made from lustrous satin and paneled with wispy chiffon along the bodice and raised neckline. We love how the spliced midi hem gently moves with every step.

For Fall '17, Creative Director Christina Exteen draws inspiration from Michelle Pfeiffer's fearless role in Scarface - she describes the By Malene Birger woman as "strong and self-determined, dressing to impress herself." Cut for a second-skin fit, this ribbed sweater is knitted with light-catching bronze and cobalt threads in a bold striped pattern. We love how the elongated silhouette gives the illusion of a leaner frame.
