valle+vik is a London based lifestyle brand that creates unique yet timeless silk dresses, in printed and plain silks. Suitable for a multitude of occasions and destinations, taking you seamlessly from day to night and beyond... Inspired by urban living and global travels.
The collections are made up of key shapes in different luxurious silks, each individual and versatile by nature - aiming to complete and enhance your travel and lifestyle wardrobe.
All our prints are created in London by founder Silje Vallevik reflecting her background in fine art and her Norwegian heritage - ensuring a distinctive yet timeless feel throughout each collection.
We source and print all our fabrics in the UK, then have each piece cut and stitched at our family run factory in Portugal.
“I've always loved prints, colours and the effect of wearing certain clothes have on my mood, attitude and confidence. Having spent years looking for those perfect, individual pieces, I wanted to create a brand that would be distinctive yet timeless, with that little extra something.
I founded valle+vik with the aim to create those easy, effortless pieces you need in your wardrobe, using only the best quality materials but at a fair price. The go-to things you throw on and feel great in, whether you’re on the beach, at a cocktail party or meeting friends for brunch in the city.”
- Silje Vallevik, Founder
Norwegian born - London based designer Silje Vallevik's background is reflected in the sense of colour and composition in her designs. Following studies at art school in Norway, Silje embarked on a modelling career, living between New York, London and Paris continuing to study art throughout. She has exhibited her art at shows in both the UK and France.
Silje draws her main print inspiration from Scandinavian culture mixing the traditional with an urban jet-set vibe. She is especially inspired by the traditional Norwegian folk costumes and their eternal embroideries and prints that she saw growing up in southern Norway.
She is continuously inspired by her global travels, evidenced by the relaxed elegance and rich colours of her designs.
