Second Female was founded in Copenhagen in year 2000. The style is Scandinavian with a chic and modern French touch. This is reflected in the four yearly collections through feminine silhouettes, hand-drawn prints, chunky knits and elegant suits.

Our design philosophy and aim is to create a relevant wardrobe that embodies all the comfort and confidence a woman needs to express her personal look.

Underlining the Scandinavian values of effortless luxury and functionality, we create collections that are classic in a contemporary context, always focusing on this season´s “must have” items.

Sustainable Choice

Sustainability is a huge focus area for us. The last years we have worked intensively on improving our production and our way of thinking and communicating sustainability. It is work in progress and we take pride in the improvements we make collection by collection without compromising on look and feel of our beautiful styles. As a customer you are always welcome to ask questions about the sustainability of each style.
