Established in 2013, Ahlvar Gallery updates the iconic silk blouse for the urban woman. Combining fluid, everyday silk pieces with more traditional classics, Swedish designer and founder Frida Ahlvarsson seeks to redefine the notion of timeless dressing.
Ahlvar Gallery's collections are made of exclusive silk and divided into five different lines: Classics, Prints, Jacquards Heavy silk and Dressed. Every season Ahlvar Gallery release's 4-5 different prints that are all handmade by the designer and printed with 3D technique. They usually combine the natural colors washed black, midnight blue, powder and off-white with brighter colors of the season. Their goal is to design and produce timeless collections that strike with a perfect balance of wearable and unique.
Ahlvar Gallery produce their collections in one of the most well known silk factories that also produces pieces for high-end fashion brands like Alexander McQueen, Phillip Lim, Diane Von Furstenberg and Alexander Wang. To be able to make pieces with high quality and impeccable finish Ahlvar Gallery believe in the importance of knowledge and experience and are therefore working with the most professional workers in the industry. To make the fitting as perfect as possible Ahlvar Gallery work with the leading pattern company in Sweden called Svensk Mönsterform that also work with brands like Acne Studios, Hope, Filippa K, Whyred and Tiger. Each style in Ahlvar Gallery's collections have to go through 7 sample tests to make sure that they look absolutley perfect before they get sent out to Ahlvar Gallery's retailers. Their vision is to make timeless blouses that will last for a lifetime and can be worn day as night. Look at your Ahlvar Gallery blouses as a long-term investment that pays off every time you are wearing them, and we promise it will be often. This is as far from mass production as you could come.
Silk! Silk! Silk! What can we say, it's the most wonderful fabric to have closest to our skin and one of the most exclusive materials you can possibly wear. It has an amazing finish and falls beautifully on the body, at the same time; it is both timeless and luxurious. One of its many other strengths is also the fact that silk is a breathable material, which means that you don’t have to wash it every time it has been worn. An keep in mind that a proper steamer kills around 99,9% of the bacterias. Just saying...
Ahlvar Gallery most commonly hang together with other contemporary brands like Acne Studios, Rodebjer, Hope, Ganni, Toteme, Frame, Isabel Marant, Theory, See by Chloe, Mother, Maska, Ulla Johnson, Ace & Jig, A.P.C, Apiece Apart and Ahlvar Gallery can be found in smaller independent shops as concept stores, as bigger department stores.
