CPHFW Report: Recapping the Final Day of Great Dane Designers
After an intense round of shows, trade fairs, events, and parties, Copenhagen fashion week has come to an end. As always, there has been too much to do and not enough time to experience everything. Blessed by excellent summer weather and amazing clothes, Copenhagen shone brightly this past week. The last couple of shows were the perfect finish.
Henrik Vibskov presented one of his strongest collections with beautiful knitwear, prints, and silhouettes—and he delivered a high-voltage show production, which honestly gave me goose bumps. His presentations are usually very conceptual, and this time involved a wading pool with 15 ballet dancers and a well-choreographed performance. It was a splash!
For this season, Asger Juel Larsen offered a rock-and-roll attitude and found a way to pull off an androgynous cyberpunk look with lots of black, white, and neon, as well as denim, neoprene, and mesh. Rock on, Asger.
Stine Ladefoged is known for her avant-garde knitwear, and this season she found her inspiration in the human skeleton, both for her knitwear and a couple of printed pieces. The collection was kept in mainly white, dark blue, and black, accented by a bright yellow to spice things up.
