ABOUT THE COLLECTION
This season Busnel is offering both significant updated classics and unexpected new styles. The materials are wool bouclé, silk, velvet, merino wool, twisted wool, lambskin and down. It is not just the materials that are surprising, but also the exciting material combinations such as merino wool with leather, and down with water resistant merino wool. The range of colours is black, almost black, off white and taupe, with the accent colours ocean blue, burgundy and pearl. Five new leather bags are included in the
collection, and completely new products for the season are sunglasses and leather belts.
“It is always a challenge, but also exciting to be able to present a new season. Our creative consultant Robert Rydberg and I have created a collection which obviously reflects Busnel’s French heritage, but we have also looked westwards. Inspiration has been derived from the American east coast’s relaxed but nevertheless stylish elegance. Bouvier, Long Island and Lasata are some of our themes. The French feminine in combination with the leisured American life style are a perfect combination for the strong, independent woman we are targeting,” explains Louise Falkenberg, designer and owner of Busnel.
The East Side theme includes a coat, short jacket with 3⁄4 arm, shawl and hat in wool bouclé. Long Island includes a coat, pyjama trousers and shirt in silk and velvet jacket, velvet top and wide trousers in velvet. Themé Bouvier is oversized garments in the finest merino wool. Beale includes jacket and sweater in the combination of leather and merino wool, but also a leather skirt with gold fasteners and leather trousers. Porter presents a short down jacket and a coat both with knitted arms in water resistant merino wool.

In France 1920, Busnel was created and established by Monsieur and Madame Busnel. Initially by first building their own factory at the west coast of France, possessing their wish to create a lifestyle brand with the highest quality of wool. Shortly after, the fisherman’s sweater became an important trademark and representation for the brand. Busnel also
supplied the French army with knitted products, during the second world war between 1939-1945.
Thereafter, Anita Falkenberg brought Busnel from France to Scandinavia. 1970 she established the agency for the brand located in Stockholm, and consequently Scandinavia became the leading market between the decades of 1970-2000. When Anita first introduced Busnel 1970, the knitted Victoria Jacket with golden anchor buttons became a significant symbol for the breakthrough of the modern woman during that time. Today, Busnel’s heritage is essential, as the focus still lays on high quality, luxury fabrics and clean silhouettes for the chic and sophisticated woman. With intention to combine the authentic French heritage with
fashion characteristics of new thinking and sustainability.
In 2009 Anita’s daughter Louise Falkenberg bought Busnel, aiming to carefully rejuvenate the brand. The following years, Busnel has continued to grow and the main focus is still slow fashion and high quality wool that will last a lifetime. Today 2018, the brand is a well-known brand in Scandinavia, with a growing position on the European market. Uniquely, with a production of the knitted styles in the same factory that was established 1920 by Monsieur and Madame Busnel at the west coast of France.
