Scandinavians are famed for their style, and so it was no surprise that the catwalks of Copenhagen Fashion Week offered numerous new trends to wear for AW17. Culture Trip brings you the best looks from Copenhagen, and a challenge to up your sartorial game to keep up with those glamorous Danes.
Puffer jacket pants
Danish brand Tonsure offered a remarkable feat of originality when designer Malte Flagstaad walked puffer pants in jungle green and lamé red duvet trousers along the catwalk for their AW17 collection. While coats of a similar style have been a long-standing trend, wrapping up the legs has never been a wardrobe staple. Expect that to change next winter, and start figuring out how to re-purpose your salopettes now. You can read our interview with the creative director of Tonsure here.
Pink for everyone
We don’t want to go on about it, but pink is without a doubt the colour to covet in 2017, as was most recently demonstrated by Trine Lindegaard’s and Jean // Philipe’s AW17 show. Here both male and female models in various shades of pink sportswear – think tutti fruiti twists right through to strawberry ice-cream shades – offered an exceptional case for embracing His & Hers looks right now. Lindegaard also looked to orange to render sports luxe in a new light – a trend that has been gathering apace since the London Fashion Week Men’s shows.
LA LA Land may have single-handedly sparked a resurgence of the colour yellow, but Won Hundred offered a fresh take on how to wear it when they walked models in all-black 80’s style jumpsuits accompanied by bumble-bee black and yellow sock-shoes. The hybrid of Vetements meets Formula One rally driver offered a heady sartorial cocktail that seems impossible to refuse.
Avant-garde ear jewellery
We’re really not sure how to categorise the sculptural delights that adorned the ears of models at Henrik Vibskov’s AW17. With accessories oscillating between oversized pin-cushions and spiral wire sculptures, softened by pastel coloured pieces of lace, there was little time to absorb the designs proper. However when we could tear ourselves away from the mesmeric creations, Culture Trip was delighted to see further commitment to the colour pink in the form of pastel, drop crotch jumpsuits on a bias cut; oversized pockets – also seen at Marni womenswear last season, thus a sure indication that they’ll be back – and candy-stripe suit combos guaranteed to add a twist to neutral staples.
The attention seeking hood
HÆRVÆRK AW17 collection married Matrix chic with a shot serotonin inducing block colours, and then completed each look with very quirky hoods. Of course, we loved it. What better way to avoid the rain than by pulling a cerulean hood over your eyes; drawing a denim concoction tightly around your head or making a full commitment to the cause with a sunshine yellow igloo that puffs out all the way around your face? Seriously.
