Copenhagen Fashion Week is over, the street style photographers have gone home, the spotlights are turned off, and Hotel D’Angleterre is back to being a regular hotel. Let’s focus on the highlights that caught our eyes.
For the first time in Denmark, we saw a model wearing a hijab on the catwalk. The model Amina Adan appeared for the first time in the Blanche Show, and then at several other shows. My god – how interesting it was to see something different!
It wasn’t only Amina who represented diversity on the runway; we saw models of every age, ethnicities, gender-fluid (Hey Vincent Beier – you rock) and various sizes, especially in shows by J. Lindeberg, Lærke Andersen, Morten Ussing and Freya Dalsjø.
Back to the 80’s with Baum Und Pferdgarten
Baum Und Pferdgarten presented a show that made us dream about wearing high heeled, up-to-the-knee white boots, men’s coats in red and corduroy suits, precisely like the career women in the 80’s.
One interesting trend we spotted at this fashion week was the many voluminous sleeves. We got a little sneak peek of these in the Autumn 2017, but this tendency is even bigger in the coming season.
A trip to Japan with Munthe
There was no doubt about the Asian references at the Munthe show, which was in Sydhavnen Thursday morning. The models walked on a pink carpet with sceneries of rabbits and Japanese flowers in the background. The models wore broad waist belts, amazing jackets, feminine prints and light and delicate materials.
We love uniforms
Do you have a suit? Then keep it! The Fashion Week indicated that next autumn a nice cut suit will be the hottest thing.
Munthe did suits in light and shiny materials, at Baum Und Pferdgarten we saw suits in corduroy, and at Designers Remix they were checked.
A “hint” of Balenciaga
By seeing a few of the Danish collections, you could sense that Balenciaga had a great year in 2017. There was a strong reference to Balenciaga in cuts, design, and colours. Surely not a highlight in a good sense, but never the less it caught the eye, let’s hope it’s a one-time thing.
