Foreign Affairs

About the brand

Foreign Affairs is a Copenhagen-based fashion brand with focus on arty and effortless designs. The universe of Foreign Affairs is inspired by traveling the world and each sweater design is created around a great travel moments. From catching a taxi during Paris fashion week, to enjoying an Aprés ski drink in Chamonix.

The sweaters are right for any occasion and every destination - be it adventure, business, relaxation or pleasure. They are easy to wear and easy to care for. The sweaters are not based on short termed trends but work beautifully across the seasons.

The designs are classic with eye catching and edgy artworks. The playful artworks are created especially for Foreign Affairs in collaboration with London- based graffiti artist Simon Rachwan.

“It`s all about dreams” says founder and creative director Maria Meilgaard.
