MEET TRAGER DELANEY


When supermodel Arizona Muse chooses to be the face of your first campaign you know you have hit home. That is the case of Danish breed designer Kim Trager and English born Lowell Delaney. Notable brands as Haider Ackermann, Céline and Alexander Wang has had the pleasure of the two designers after they left Central Saint Martins in London and before they decided to team up and design under the name Trager Delaney.

Their spring summer collection for 2013 is their debut collection and oozes effortless luxury, relaxed tailoring and investment pieces you just know will follow you many years to come.

We caught up with Lowell and Kim for a chat about secret talents, current pleasures and of course the future for Trager Delaney.
