As Copenhagen Fashion Week comes to a draw and New York Fashion Week is only a week away, there’s little time to breathe. As always though, we have rounded key moments from this past Copenhagen Fashion Week to keep you in the loop.
RABENS SALONER WENT DARK
The brand synonymous with colour veered a different direction this season. Opting for moody blues, forest greens and dark browns, Rabens Saloner made an impression with its take on classic sartorial designs. Bonus points for keeping our ears’ warmth in mind with all the head scarves and hats.
ALPHA’S FINAL PILLOW BOW
Talent incubator Alpha has been harbouring some of the most up and coming talent, and this season was no exception. Designer Julie Lundgaard Christophersen presented her collection surrounding the theme of body image. A highlight was the giant bow made out of a literal pillow – it was no snooze for the young designer.
LISA RINA WALKED ROTATE
Step aside Amelia Gray, it’s your mum’s time to shine on the runway. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Rinna brought the heat up at Rotate’s FW23 show, wearing an itty-bitty black bodysuit and a flamboyant leopard print faux-fur coat to match.
STAMM’S STEP TOWARD THE FUTURE
Part of Zalando’s annual sustainability award, designer Elisabet Stamm envisioned the future not only within the environmentally-friendly fashion discourse, but also through her designs. Bringing in large beige puffers looking like they came straight out of Star Wars and Steven Spielber’s E.T. printed onto tees, STAMM’s designs were otherworldly.
LATIMMIER’S TRANSGRESSIVE TAKE ON MENSWEAR
Titled “Interlude”, Latimmier’s third runway show saw traditional garments being repurposed and recontextualized with a modern discourse on the presentation of masculinity. Plunging skirts, leather garters and strong tailored suits were all featured in the collection.
A. ROEGE HOVE’S ARTISTIC KNITS
A master of craftsmanship and knitwear, A. Roege Hove’s created elegant, muted tone pieces with extreme delicacy. The highlight though was the first look – a sheer high-neck dress layered with a black and white short-sleeve over piece – which was actually made on stage à la Bella Hadid at Coperni.
BACK TO NOT SO BASIC TAILORING WITH MARK KENLY DOMINO TAN
A high-collar suit jacket, a sleeveless jumpsuit inspired by a zoot suit, a suit jacket but removing everything except for the sleeves, a wide shoulder oversized suit jacket… You get the picture. Mark Kenly Domino Tan reinvented the classic suit in more ways than one, suited for everyone’s taste.
HENRIK VIBSKOV GOES MATURE
Henrik Vibskov took to the red carpet to show his FW23. Dressing a cast of mainly older models, the designer played with textures, such as popcorn fabric and heavy knits, as well as prints and colours. The collection was a jumbo-mix of patterns yet followed a cohesive line throughout, on par with his brand aesthetic.
