Copenhagen Fashion Week has just come to a close, and as ever, it’s bring us a fabulous dose of Scandi fashion, with labels and designers such as Baum und Pferdgarten, Ganni and Holzweiler getting us excited for next winter thanks to their AW22 collections.
But it’s not just the catwalk serving us major style inspo, the street is just as good, with editors and influencers descending on the Danish capital in their best and brightest outfits. Keep scrolling for a recap of the shows, as well as the best street style from CPFW.
The brand is not only working to empower women to feel great about themselves, but also about the choices they make in life. Adding new volumes and cutlines to key wardrobe pieces has been the mission, but also making sure it has a multifunctional purpose. NYNNE has taken inspiration from the film noir movement, merging the high glamour and drama with practicality. The pieces are designed to be mixed and matched for different occasions.
Baum und Pferdgarten
Baum und Pferdgarten built on the Arctic north for an autumn/winter collection full of layers and surprises. There were streamlined puffers in punchy metallics, quilted A-line skirts, overshirts and trousers in earthy neutrals. Knitwear added layers of colours and warmth while staple denims were elevated thanks to crystal embellishments. Comforting fashion at its best.
The Ganni show is always one of the highlights of Copenhagen Fashion Week and this season’s didn’t disappoint. The collection was fun and frilly without compromising on Ganni’s DNA of western (those cowboy boots!) and 90s influencers mixed with colour and embellishments. There were ribbons and bows everywhere, pencil skirts in deep magenta sequins, made from recycled polyester – sustainability being at the core of the brand.
‘This season is all about high energy, channeling hope and optimism as the world opens up again and greeting it with confidence,’ said Ditte Reffstrup, Creative Director of GANNI.
Holzweiler’s AW22 collection, ‘Weathering’, took its cue from the weather and the effects it has on its environment.
This translated into weathered effects and decayed textures across garments, with key details including distressed hems, peeling paint, natural patinas and “the beauty of decay” as lace and delicate fabric.
The AW22 was the first under the helm of the label’s new Head of Womenswear Design, Meme Marta Fagiuoli, who wanted to put the focus on ‘a woman in power’ one that belonged in the eccentric, fast paced New York City of the 90s . Think sexy and bold designs, strong tailoring and feel-good clothing.
‘We strive to be an inclusive brand by not excluding any sex or body shape with our collections’, said Meme Marta Fagiuoli.
