Founded in 2002, Stella Nova is a quintessentially Danish cult brand we absolutely adore. With refreshing prints and shapes, plus a general positive energy in each piece, we are so excited to launch their rental collection. We spoke to the brand's founder, Trine Skoller, about her design ethos, inspirations and the world of Stella Nova.

Stella Nova means new star and at the same time I imagine it being like a girls name. My best friend, a muse and an inspiration character.
I love to think that we somehow can express positivity in the way we dress… a little humble hope that this actually might make the world just a little bit better.
Nowhere and everywhere…inspiration is unfortunately not a thing you can switch on and off. Sometimes it is there and sometimes not and the more you seek it the less it shows. Having said that, I love going to art exhibitions, watching movies or just to watch other people.
I guess you can say that inspiration is everywhere around you. I always work with a specific theme or history which gives a certain frame– and I like to think of it as if my aim is to create the perfect wardrobe.
In order to reach our climate goals, I think we must all be a part of the transformation and seek towards more responsible consumption habits. I think the HURR project shows this responsibility in a very clear and strong way and I am proud to be a part of that.
It is difficult to point out. I have so many but the cardigan with the embroidered shrimp, the flower printed suit and the flower embroidered denim are some of my favourites. The 'Loan' dress is also a typical Stella Nova piece and something that shows in each wardrobe we make.
It is a huge question, and I think I can only answer for myself. I hope that we all strive to do our best in order to make products that are created in the best way to secure that each garment has a long life as it is proven that durability is the most sustainable factor in the garment industry.
In HURR Wardrobe is back with a very special edition starring Freya Rabet. After working as a designer for both fast and sustainable fashion brands, Freya Rabet launched her own label, Freya Simonne, of upcycled pieces last year and an environmental education project, Protect Your Mother. As extensions of her own personal style and sustainable ethos, Freya crafts her limited-edition collections from gorgeous vintage fabrics and duvets in an array of florals and pastel hues. We caught up with Freya to learn more about her work and to introduce you to her fabulous world.
Not only did we get a behind-the-scenes peek at Freya's design process and personal style ("Eclectic! Feminine! Fun!") but she is also launching an exclusive capsule rental collection of her pieces on HURR, a portion of the proceeds of which will be donated to her friend's charity, The Love Hearts Appeal. Her entire process is the embodiment of our monthly theme of loving your clothes. Welcome to In HURR Wardrobe.
