'Slow down, and take a pause'.
Nothing to do moments… These moments are more and more important in our busy and fast living lives.
By a short break or pause you allow yourself to have a moment to get filled with creative thoughts, or great ideas.
This is the main idea behind andpause.
'Doing what you like is freedom, Liking what you do is Happiness'.
Always fascinated by pieces from the past.
What is the story behind this dress? When did you wear it? May i try it on?
Nine out of ten times, the garments were too big. Not only clothing is a fascination, even furniture, rugs, curios etcetera.
I get surprised by vintage pieces because i have never seen it before, or the styling, design,
workmanship and manufacturing is totally different than i see in my daily life as a designer.
Fast fashion vs Vintage

'Vintage story items
are more than just fashion,
they let you wear memories'.

‘All items from the andpause pieces collection originally had a different form or function in it’s preloved life, Renee altered those items into more wearable or different looking, unique pieces.
Sometimes there are even pictures or handwritten notes added to your package with stories of it’s pre-loved life.
