That’s a wrap on Copenhagen Fashion Week, and although we won’t miss the rainy and windy weather that made the umbrella the go-to accessory this season, we will miss the undeniable talent that showcased their collections. There were some pretty major moments this season, like Stine Goya bringing out 90s supermodel Helena Christensen to close its show and Paolina Russo which showcased its first fashion show.
Stine Goya brought out Helena Christensen
Titled “HOMECOMING”, for its SS24 collection Stine Goya literally took it back home, by showing in the designer’s very own street. As neighbouring backyards were used as backstage and local people stood out of their balcony to watch the show, Stine Goya brought the street party vibe to the runway, by decorating it with long tables filled with balls of lettuce, jellies and other strange foods. The collection was smart yet feminine, with flowy dresses and decorated suit pieces, with a closing performance by legendary supermodel Helena Christensen wearing a one-shoulder sky-blue dress.
Paolina Russo debuted its first runway show
As part of Zalando’s Visionary Award winner, Paolina Russo debuted its first runway show titled “Monolithics”. It was a modern interpretation of the modern warrior woman with a soft edge, opting for its typical lean on grungy knitwear. We also saw denim pieces with washed-in patterns, embellished skirts and tops, and criss-cross crop tops reminiscent of warrior shielding gear without the hardware it usually comes in.
J.LINDEBERG went full on motorcross
For SS24, J.LINDEBERG chose to showcase its new collection with a moto-inspired presentation. Models were seen wearing the new pieces in front of a motorcycle with fiery colours, red, orange and yellow. The motorsport inspiration bled through into the clothing, with sport jackets, graphics on hoodies and tees, biker shorts and racing gloves. The collection was complete through the use of accessories, such as visor glasses, carabiners, logo-decorated belts and bandanas.
Saks Potts gave us a seaside runway
Titled “Horrend Run” which translates to “Around The World”, Saks Potts invited its guests to witness its SS24 show by the sea. The location wasn’t just a highlight of Denmark’s coastal location but rather a deeply personal choice as next to the kindergarten founders Catherine Saks and Barbara Potts met 25 years prior. The collection consisted of a beach to nighttime-ready wardrobe, with bikini tops and bottoms, striped button-up shirts and ruched-detailed tops, skirts and dresses.
Kernemilk revived us with a pearly white room
It was also a runway first for Kernemilk this Fashion Week. Titled “Revive”, this collection marks a turning point for the Danish brand which showcased its playful and modern take on femininity. The show took place in an all-white room, which made the colourful and darker hues used in this collection pop. We saw denim boots, mesh tops and tailored button-up tops that will become the next it pieces in the Scandinavian girl’s wardrobe.
