CMMN SWDN is designed by husband and wife duo Saif Bakir and Emma Bakir Hedlund, who first met in 2004 whilst studying at Central Saint Martins and London College of Fashion.
With their debut collection stocked exclusively at high profile stores Tres Bien Shop and Storm in Copenhagen, the pair were awarded Swedish Elle magazine's prestigious Best Newcomer Award in 2013.
That same year, CMMN SWDN went on to receive the British Fashion Council NEWGEN Award — a platform that meant the duo would showcase their collection as part of London Fashion Week Men's for several seasons to come.
For Spring 2019 CMMN SWDN was honoured to open Paris Fashion Week and have since been a fixture on the Parisian fashion calendar.
With an aesthetic inspired by their diverse backgrounds and design disciplines there is a constant play on contrasting elements and the use of unexpected pairings: masculine and feminine, textured and fluid, structured and deconstructed with each piece offering a balance of opposing elements that caters for the self-confident individual.
