Copenhagen Fashion Week
11 February 2020
I wanted to share my favourite street style and catwalk looks from Copenhagen Fashion Week which happened last week. Fashion Weeks might not usually be of interest to you but this one, although less high profile, is definitely worth keeping an eye out for. I have had a love for Scandi brands for the last 10 years or so, I think the main reason I am drawn to them is because they represent an understated cool which I have always wanted to achieve in my own style! The collections are always very wearable and mostly timeless, often with an interesting twist. Ganni has been one of my favourite brands since it’s launch and I remember buying my first Ganni piece in the Liberty London sale many years ago. It’s a sheer black embroidered top with a floral design and velvet cuffs. It felt very special and unique but something that wouldn’t date in my wardrobe. Looking at the most recent collections to come off the catwalk from the likes of Ganni, Stine Goya and Baum und Pferdgarten to name a few, this timeless aesthetic still holds true. A lot of the trends we have seen before such as leather, puff sleeves, statement collars and animal print were shown, yet the collections all looked new and covetable.
I loved the fresh take on the polka dot trend at Stine Goya with their sequin spot dress and leather trousers styled with an oversized check shirt at Munthe. My favourite look from the Ganni collection were their statement collars which I’m very tempted by! By Malene Birger had a gorgeous knit co-ord which looks really new yet I could see it lasting in my wardrobe for many years to come.

When it comes to street style, the girls all looked effortlessly cool and put together. Layering was done so well, with leather, faux fur, knitwear and parkas. There was definitely a neutral theme to a lot of the outfits with checked tailoring featuring heavily too. It’s the way the outfits are pulled together which makes them different, not necessarily that they are cutting edge trends. Colours coming through from street style were orange, green and red.
