An old townhouse in Copenhagen

Suzanna

Susanna Rutzou describes her style – both at work and at home – as, ‘feminine, unpretentious, slightly eccentric’. In her women’s wear line, she takes fragments from vintage pieces and reworks them into her own designs, creating a unique fusion of old with new. ‘I particularly love suit fabrics such as tweeds and pinstripes – that contrast between masculine style and feminine usage is something I find really intriguing’. She’s taken much the same approach to contrasting past and present in her Copenhagen home, which is a sort of living patchwork, made up of pieces she’s inherited, furniture she’s bought locally, and treasures picked up on business trips abroad. The apartment takes up the entire third floor of an old, five-storey town house that dates from 1870.
