The name dates back to the 80ís and a girl in California who used to hang around with the elite skateboarding crowd. All the girls tried their best to impress the guys, except one. She did her own thing, without any fuss or make-believe. Of course she was the one the guys wanted.
The best part of the story is how she looked her best by being true to herself.
But why Odd? Well, because it is rare to find people with the courage of their eccentricities. Be odd by being yourself.
Molly? That might have been her name. Or maybe not. That's a secret creator Per Holknekt will have to divulge.
We met 10 years ago and understood immediately that we had a magical connection and an idea worth building a company on. We saw something in our meeting that was missing in fashion heaven and liked the idea of complementing the market, not just competing. Today, 10 years later, we know we were right.
Our personal commitment to an aesthetic design and feeling hasnít changed. We will always give our pens free reign in respectful ignorance of what trends say we should do. We will always stand up for women as a phenomenon far beyond what todayís superficial values make her out to be. These two things are deeply rooted in Odd Mollyís soul, simply because we are company built on people, on humanity and commitment.
Our message, and our designís, is for real. Itís wildly beautiful, itís heartfelt and itís needed. In the past, today and in the future.
And, yes, we will always argue affectionately, challenge conventions and at the same time enjoy a little friendly laugh.
