Søs Jensen came into existence in Bergen – Europe’s most rainy city – in 2005. In surroundings where every season might appear in one day, the two sisters Grete and Karen felt the want of outer wear that met their needs. Our aim was to be able to dress stylishly in an unpredictable climate without sacrificing style, comfort, and fashion.
The sisters, both with a background in the fashion and clothing industry, joined forces and developed a collection of outer wear of technical quality, equally suitable for sunny and rainy days: waterproof, breathing, and of high technical quality. The first collection sold out quickly.
Søs Jensen soon expanded from to Bergen to the rest of Norway, and today our outerwear is sold in other wet countries as well.
As chief designer, Grete listens to her own voice and follows her instincts, and this is the essence of the Søs Jensen’s foundation: pencil and paper. Even today Grete draws every garment by hand – with a keen focus on elegant details like hoods, ribbons, zippers, and pockets.
