Copenhagen cool girls, assemble! It's that time of year again when the Scandi set descends on the capital of Denmark to bring us some much-needed fashion cheer in the depths of winter. This catwalk schedule gets the benefit of preceding the fashion weeks in New York, London, Milan, and Paris and thereby offers an enticing first glimpse at what's to come for spring. Plus, the mix of brilliant designers (both up-and-coming like Helmstedt and cult-status like Ganni) and impossibly stylish attendees make it an event to circle on your calendar in thick red pen every season. So when Copenhagen Fashion Week invited me to see the action up close, I jumped at the chance and you can follow what I see both on and off the runway via my Instagram account here.
These are the women who defy all seasonal norms or expectations: Pea-green coats? Sure. Pink dresses to cycle in? Ja, please. How about pastel trouser suits? Mad sportswear? Crazy tights? All very acceptable on the streets of #CPHFW and more than acceptable for us all when it's all too easy to slide into that black overcoat yet again…
So, without further ado, here are the coolest looks and burgeoning spring trends to come out of Copenhagen Fashion Week so far.
