Every season before Copenhagen Fashion Week, I get this excited feeling and butterflies in my stomach like I’m about to meet the hottest guy I’ve ever seen. Only in real life, I’m about to witness the Danish masters, who can pull off any growing trend, embrace it and present innovative styling ideas both down the runway and rocking it on street style outfits.
It’s no secret that every year more bloggers, editors and photographers from around the world attend the CPHFW and it became one of the most popular fashion weeks to look for. So what we had this week; from the hair clips – the trend that has been flooding our IG feeds for the past few months, to very oversized jackets and coats, from color combos and prints you could never dream they will match to chunky hiking boots and colorful vintage square sunglasses.
Not only did the Scandinavian girls step up their game, but on the runway, we also spotted innovative productions like Stine Goya’s unconventional runway which became a dancing show, Holzweiler’s non-phone show and the coolest hip-hop soundtrack on ROTATE Birger Christensen.
If you didn’t realize by now that you should have attended CPHFW, know that the guests got some surprising treats – the 90’s famous game Tamagotchi, a popcorn box covered faux fur on the Stand show and the unique table setting of “apple and catalog” at Mark Kenly Domino Tan’s show, which also chose the beautiful Thorvaldsens Museum as the location. It seems like the good ideas never stop coming to the brilliant Danish mind.
