CPH SS19

The August edition of the Copenhagen Fashion Week, which is the largest fashion week among the Nordic regions, just ended. It is one of those I always enjoy and in which there is always some new designers that draw the attention the most. The nordic style is not really for everyone, but once you start to understand and enjoy it.. then it’s always source of big inspiration for the everyday attire choices.

Here below some of the runaways I enjoyed the most, in which floral patterns and both loose and voluminous structures seem to be the common points.

BAUM UND PFERDGARTEN

The sporty vibes, part of the essence of the brand, are being mixed with more romantic and vintage shapes that are currently sweeping the fashion world. Loved how the brand used the flower print in various shades from blue, green, purple to yellow and pink. Also, is all about check prints including prince of wales and gingham. Amazing. 

 

CECILIE BAHNSEN

This is how I see myself strolling around the next year. Romantic and feminine with voluminous shapes, large puff sleeves and bell-shaped skirts in colored lace – lime, rose, baby blue and navy; or rose, white and yellow. A summer dream for sure. 

 

MUNTHE

A runaway I totally loved, full of must-haves: from see-through shirts to dresses with flowing ruffles and ample sleeves, that gives a relaxed and laid back feeling. Totally inspired, as the designer herself said, to the fauna of Bali. 

 

 

STINE GOYA

The perfect catwalk for everyone who loves floral pattern, medium length shirts, the art of combining patterns and layers.. like me. Styling definitely played a vital role in getting that edgier and somehow retro message across the show. 

 

MONDAY – ON MY MIND

MONDAY – ON MY MIND

Khaite cotton-poplin shirt / Raye straight-leg jeans / Cult Gaia ortoiseshell acetate hoop earrings / Muuñ square leather tote / Rochas bow-appliqué velvet slides

The Ideal outfit for a Monday morning in the office, while you mind is already thinking about vacation. Light blue v neck shirt with a boxy cut and button-cuffed voluminous sleeves, which is a large trend for the AW18 season, paired with Raye’s weighty rigid white denim that are a must for every warm season.

A coffee-brown square leather tote with a detachable bottle-green pouch is perfect for keeping the things women need on a daily basis,

A nice way to complete a daily outfit is by choosing to wear this statement pair of earrings by Cult Gaia ( the brand definitely found a nice way to expand its products line ) together with vivid colored shoes, like these enchanting emerald-green velvet slides.

THE FLORAL ( NEVER-ENDING ) TREND

THE FLORAL ( NEVER-ENDING ) TREND

Tutia maxi dress from Horror Vacui / Floral bead-embellished drop clip-on earrings from Etro

Dainty georgette floral-print wrap skirt from Ganni / Golden plissé floral-print dress from Zimmermann

Floral patterns, floral embroideries, floral shapes. It is an ever-green that never fails to show up in each season. It’s all about embracing the joy and romance of spring, actually not just in those months but 365 days a year. Perhaps this is why the floral trend is one that just won’t go away.

The variety is huge. Printed mini-dresses like the plissé one from Zimmermann, that looks exactly like an April country side field with its little shy flowers and herbs. Or the wrap skirt from Ganni that plays with daisies, myosotis and poppies. 

One brand that’s going strong lately its Horror Vacui, a German brand based in Munchen, the capital city of Bavaria. It is inspired by vintage sleepwear and Liberty prints. Every style features thoughtful details that go from scalloped edges and delicate smocking to the intricate prints themselves. Flowers are some of the most used prints. Surely not easy-going but also surely a statement pieces that can be paired with white t-shirt and denim for every day looks.

This trend does not stop at clothing, as there’s always the entire universe of accessories. Silk scarves, purses and even earrings. You just have to choose. 

OLD BUT GOOD

OLD BUT GOOD

Vintage kitten hills from Fendi 

Sometimes mom’s closets can hide some forgotten gems. It is the case of these cute pair of kitten baby heels from Fendi. What makes them interesting it’s definitely their geometrical lines and the little small beads that are sewed on the brand’s classic and recognizable brown pattern, giving them some fun and color for cool summer nights.

DOING SUITS

DOING SUITS

Both suits from Zara

Suits are no more just a man thing. Blazer with palazzo pants, belted jackets or structured tops with skirts or shorts.. the variety  of combinations for suits are more then a few. You can have fun, play with bold colors and different fabrics .. never though about soft suits in linen? Amazing for summer nights.

 

BRANDS I LOVE

BRANDS I LOVE

HVN

Morgan heart-print silk long dress / Josephine floral-print silk long dress / Maria cherry-print cotton-blend dress / Nora floral-print silk slip dress 

Dresses inspired by vintage closets. Luxurious fabrics. Different prints, motifs and colors. Ginghams, cherries and flowers. Those are the key elements that makes HVN the brand it is. HVN is all about Harley Viera Newton: it’s owner, creator and one of the coolest women around. She lets her designs talk for her and what she loves… the outcome it’s amazing.

 

KALEOS EYEHUNTERS

Dunnage 2 / Shawer 2 / Lund 2 / Everdeen 3 

Sunglasses have always been fundamental in my every-day looks, as they can be bold and eye-catching giving to the most simple white t-shirt and jeans combination a twist. Kaleos Eyehunters has definitely a huge selection of amazing eyewear that I would buy right away. thanks to the always present and well balanced mix of design, fashion and luxury.

RIXO LONDON

Iris Mini Wrap Dress / Georgia Midi Skirt With Slits /  Twiggy Cowl Neck Mini Dress / Mila Halter Neck Bikini Top + Bora High Waisted Bikini Bottom 

Founded in 2015 by two alumni of the London College of Fashion, it reflects their deep appreciation of all the things that are vintage. It’s a brand that wants to “ shoot for the stars and has no plans of falling short “, that I quote directly from the owners. Stars, constellations and planets are also the main subjects of the ” Cosmic Costellation” collection. Smooth and classic lines define all their pieces: from dresses, skirts to blouses and swimwear … they offer the ideal vibes for this year’s summer getaways.

DANSE LENTE 

Young brick / Mia blush red brown / Mini Jhonny white blush 

Danse Lente, which means Slow Dance in French, is a handbags and small leather London based brand. Their vision is highly modern; structured bags with clear and geometrical lines. They offer a wide range of styles and colors, but their soft clear color ( together with the reds ) are the ones that immediately got my attention.
