ensæmble is the love-child of Finnish-Belgian-Russian ambition and curiosity. Its independent spirit and itinerant practice account for works stemming from the in-betweens of fashion, art and craft. ensæmble was established in 2011 and is based in Helsinki. The name ensæmble represents the firm belief in collaboration both as a requirement of the complexity of our time as well as something personally hugely inspiring. Its most intimate form is the æ, a chiasma of the initials of the two designers Alisa Närvänen and Elina Peltonen. From this intimacy all works are extended to incorporate other life-worlds and invite a polyphony of interpretations through both artist collaborations as well as the everyday actions of wearing the clothing. The clothes convey a silent yet strong presence. ensæmble studies the relations of clothing within the concurrent familiarity and absurdity of life. Its independent spirit and itinerant practice account for works stemming from the in-betweens of fashion, art and craft. Acolyth e-store now carries the brand’s collection of print t-shirts titled N*ns*ns* Noise.
