Iceland´s stark nature and unrivaled beauty is a consistent influence on Aðalbjörg. She spends her summer travelling widely across Iceland and her deep love and appreciation for the natural surroundings is reflected in her designs. For her current collection, northern lights take centre stage with pieces inspired by the dancing green lights that adorn Iceland’s skies every winter. Mountains, volcanoes and lava fields are also an inspiration.
