Fashion weeks – that exciting time of the year when catwalk dreamlands are created to show us an artistic perception of fashion, craftsmanship mastered to perfection and to inspire and give us an idea what the next big trends will be. Trends which will be soon seen everywhere, from high-end boutiques to clothes section of your local supermarkets. Are you also wondering what trends is the booming Danish fashion industry dictating for the Autumn-Winter 2017? Let’s dive into it then!
In my first fashion week post I talked about my favourite looks from Copenhagen Fashion Week AW17 and about brands which I though stole the show this season! One of them was definitely Baum und Pferdgarten, who did this perfect purple knit and army green parka combo, pairing it with the shiny leather skirt and created the most perfect everyday look! Anyways, they weren’t the only ones starting the fur collar jackets trend. It’s been in a few high street stores already, but I’m expecting a bit more fluffy jackets craziness next autumn.
I always liked the classic leopard print, but it’s definitely a bit harder nut to crack fashion wise. I think often, it can look very cheap and some styles definitely don’t do it justice. However, what I’ve seen on the runways is a whole different story. I’m absolutely digging this leo-print coat and scarf and I can’t wait to see pieces like this in stores!
Nudes in general are not so much my thing because I feel like I just disappear in them – I’m pale and they make me even paler. How smart is it to spice them up with a sprinkle of a bold red? I hope that more high street brands will take inspiration from this and we’ll see nude colours styled up in ways we’ve never seen befoe.
Lilac definitely had its presence on Copenhagen’s runway and we might see some key pieces in this subtle shade in the new autumn/winter collections. What I particularly love is the way brands played with the combo of colours and different structures – look at this shiny lilac skirt or a fluffy knit. It’s love.
If you’d ask me what I think is the signature look of most Scandi designers, I’d say – the famous Scandinavian minimalism. A mix of sporty, elegant and clean. With no doubt, sporty elements are popular among the circles of Danish creatives and this was reflected on the runway as well where they played with sporty elements combined with with colours like wine burgundy and textures such as velvet.
Who says monochrome means full black or white? The new trend says – all read is the new black! And I’m actually fine with it – it’s an interesting twist bringing something bold and fresh into the dark Scandi days.
The trend I am really excited about is the loose silhouette oversized dress. It’s just the perfect piece to throw on and go. Yo know the days when you can’t figure out anything – well this kind of piece will do it for you. I have a weakness for prints so this Lala Berlin “change” dress is just everything.
