MUNTHE is a women’s luxury ready-to-wear label established in 1994 and based in Copenhagen.
MUNTHE is 100% female founded and owned. The woman behind MUNTHE is founder and creative director Naja Munthe, who is known for her beautiful and thorough designs. After graduating from the Danish Design School, Naja wanted to find a way to express her love for creativity, art, fashion, and her entrepreneurial mindset. Creating MUNTHE fulfilled this passion – and today, Naja is the sole owner and Creative Director of MUNTHE:
“I am very fond of contrasts. I love to make feminine clothing with a masculine touch, and I tend to make clothes that are versatile and can be used for more than a single festive occasion. Styles, that you can dress up and down. Prints in stunning tops and dresses combined with boyfriend jeans or tailored suiting for a balanced look. It is important for me that the clothes are not only beautiful on the outside, but also inside – where we like to add unique and delicate details in the coating and lining.
A major part of MUNTHE’s ambition is geared towards sustainability. It has always been core to the MUNTHE brand to be conscious and constantly reflect on how we are in the world. As a fashion brand, we are - by nature - not in a sustainable industry, but we believe that by using our brand as a powerful platform and by enacting the very change we want to see in others, we can initiate small changes that will accumulate into bigger ones over time.
We interpret sustainability holistically and believe that we are on a never-ending journey where we constantly need to explore and evaluate how to best invest in progress. We constantly need to take an honest look at all aspects of our production from choosing the best low-impact materials to creating the best working conditions for our employees and suppliers. Finally, it is a journey towards unleashing the power and potential of women - an issue that has always been very close to my heart” – Naja Munthe
