Danish Pierrot la Lune was established in 2013 by designer Emilie Ventujol as the realization of a lifelong dream of creating timeless and sophisticated yet playful and informal childrenswear. The Pierrot la Lune look has a touch of nostalgia; a dreamy and magical aesthetic referring to old movies and faded photos from a childhood in southern Europe in the 50s and 60s. The cuts are simple and wearable, the colours are subdued, and the classic stripes and beautiful floral prints bare resemblance of faded wallpapers or quilts from grandma’s attic.
Excellent craftsmanship, sustainable business principles and attention to detail are key values in the design process. Pierrot la Lune´s collections are produced in organic, GOTS-certified cotton and the knitwear is manufactured in 100% soft Alpaca wool (Fairtrade) from the Bolivian highlands in South America.
Emilie Ventujol, creator and owner of Pierrot la Lune has lived and worked for a number of years in India.
From India she has brought the distinctive local block prints, which is used in her collections in a modern interpretation with the ethnic references toned down in favour of clean lines and simple patterns.
Emilie Ventujol’s family background has also contributed to her design skills and aesthetic development. Her grandfather was one of the biggest names in Danish design history, the furniture architect Børge Mogensen (1914-1972), and her grandmother sparked her interest in drawing and sewing. Her grandfather’s influence is also apparent in Emilie Ventujol’s design philosophy and clear vision for Pierrot la Lune to produce timeless children’s fashion of high quality, but at reasonable prices.
