Industry_Files and I are curious folks – we take interest not only in Baltic states but also in Europian and especially in Scandinavian fields of gold. And of course you know that my love for Copenhagen is ON forever. More than a week ago Copenhagen Fashion Week AW’15 rocked Denmark’s capital (CFW takes place twice a year – on January and on August) and attracted international media’s attention, style.com being one among many. For the first time in history CFW got the full coverage on style.com – all official shows are published there and being reviewed, judged and wowed by millions of fashion lovers all over the world. Hi5 Dear Copenhagen, you really deserved that, enjoy your moment and show your fashion guns to the world!
This time I wasn’t attending the shows, our representative Ieva did the Industry-Files covering during the happening, but that doesn’t stop me from selecting my favourite shows and representing them to you.
Designers Remix is the brand I adore. Previous season I was breathless watching its “Concrete garden” collection together with my fashion girls while sipping ice cold Tuborg at the outside of modern and urban Swed bank building and this time the head designer behind the brand Charlotte Eskildsen took inspiration from race and named the collection “Racing to the past”, which was showed at an indoor go-kart track in one of Carlsberg’s old depots. Her minimalistic and clear shapes this season were spiced and softened by 70s retro dust as well as lush and luxurious colours and materials. “We’re not born into fashion; we come from a much more architectural background. Danes are casual and we dress comfortably. We bike a lot and we spend our money on homes and not on clothing. I guess that’s what gives our clothes that kind of effortless air,” – noted Charlotte Eskildsen.
by Malene Birger
If you buy British Vogue you should recognise by Malene Birger brand because of its commercials out there. Internationally best known Danish brand by Malene Birger is always a hard to get in show attracting Denmark’s elite and celebrities. On the contrary, the brand’s availability on international markets is enviable. by Malene Birger creates wearable and commercial fashion involving the hottest seasons’ trends but always with a touch of Scandinavian effortless style.
Mark Kenly Domino Tan
Feminine and “grown up” shapes by Mark Kenly Domino Tan reminded me the Lithuanian fashion designer Ramune Piekautaite and her fashion astethics – just a bit braver and more modern.
Baum und Pfedgarten
Danish designer duo Rikke Baumgarten and Helle Hestehave is a remarkable part of Danish fashion scene. Their brand Baum und Pfedgarten are worn by blonde and pretty Copenhagen ladies on their bikes crossing the streets of Vesterbro. In my opinion, the collection was one of the best of this season – very feminine and classy but at the same time chic and playful.
The love of all cool, hipster and rich Copenhagen’s kids. Mads Nørgaard is no other but brand with an attitude. Put your cool jacket on and lets go to spend some money on candies*!
Oh you should see what happens at his shows – hundreds of psychedelically dressed youngsters and art students come to see this creative genius. Henrik always has the coolest parties after his shows and I don’t have to say that every single hipster, dj, artist, painter, fashion blogger, sexy chic and so on is there. Known for all arty people, even for those living in Lithuania, the avant-garde contemporary designer Henrik Vibskov is an artist who always presents an extraordinary experience of fashion, performance art and music. I hope that one day Henrik Vibskov will come to Lithuania and will show one of his masterpieces. Talking about his collection, named as “Messy Massage Class” it was as creative, rare and “must have” as always, oh but only if you’re hanging out at the best places with the best crowds of people. Would you like some psycho buzz on my building’s roof?
Asger Juel Larsen
Perhaps this collection isn’t the strongest work by Danish designer Asger Juel Larsen but for sure it is his own universe – cool, punk and tough. Boys don’t cry, do they?
Jean // Phillip
I can’t deny that Jean // Phillip has some kind of deepness and sexyness in his collections. No surprise he is so glorified by gay community! Men know what’s sexy ;)
