Haute-couture: Ragnhild Umbraco
Although the feminine and elegant attire of Ragnhild Umbraco, the Ninjas’ gunsmith and tools-supplier starkly contrasts the uniforms worn by her Ninjas, there are two similarities: Hand-embroidery and camouflage.
Designer Monica Kvasnes supported the work of our costume designer Sofie Rage Larsen by creating Umbraco’s clothing. Majestic yet simple, archaic yet sexy, Umbraco’s clothing is a functional interpretation of the traditional Norwegian national costume, the “bunad“. Indeed, remodeling original Norwegian embroidered table-cloths from the previous century, Ms. Kvasnes has created some of the most exquisite clothes I’ve seen. Perfectly appropriate for a Norwegian alpha-woman, at one with nature – in the storm of history – deep in the Lofoten mountains.
Below please find some of Monica’s designs. Enjoy!
