WHO ARE WE?

Our story, brand & vision

Samsøe Samsøe dates back to 1993 when a small namesake shop in Copenhagen's Latin Quarter opened. Originally selling only jewelry, the label soon expanded to include premium T-shirts and knitwear primarily for men. In 2000, Peter Sextus and Per-Ulrik Andersen took charge of the brand, transforming it into an international fashion house focusing on contemporary clothing, footwear, and accessories for men and women.

With a nod to its heritage, Samsøe Samsøe is defined by a wearable aesthetic that combines the utilitarian energy of Copenhagen street style with a quintessentially Scandinavian spirit. Collections transcend trends drawing on Denmark's renowned design tradition to result in minimalist affordable and accessible fashion with a clear Nordic look.
