Although fashion fatigue was kicking in quite hard and this being my sixth fashion week within a short period of time, I couldn’t say no when I was invited to Copenhagen Fashion Week by the organizer CIFF, which stands for Copenhagen International Fashion Fair. That’s the uniqueness of CPH. They combine not only one, but two fashion fairs and have fashion shows baked in between and basically, it means you’re constantly networking or attending a fashion show and I do have to say I love the mix of the two elements. CIFF provided me with accommodation at the beautiful Bella Sky right next to CIFF and also had me on the list of all shows they held. As it’s a mixed week (male and female) I’ve only portrayed the male fashion I liked the most, although I got to see some really beautiful female fashion as well.
HALO released the Boot Camp collection for spring/summer 2018 at Copenhagen Fashion Week. Everyday life in the Special Forces revolves as much around discipline and precision as it does around hard physical exercise. Actions repeated to perfection and optimal gear are part of the arsenal when a unit goes into battle. The Boot Camp collection was designed for life behind enemy lines.
Han Kjøbnehavn was founded in 2008 in Copenhagen and focuses on simplicity, timeless design and handicraft. This is something they wanted to change this season by adding more dramatic features to the collection as well as tailoring – quite unusual to Scandinavian minimalism.
As for Henrik Vibskov, I already saw this show in Paris, and although it didn’t blow my mind away just as much as the AW17 collection did, it had some real gems in it such as the unisex red/pink striped outfit to the left. It was a show held in Charlottenburg Palace close to midnight so the atmosphere was truly magical.
Martin Asbjörn is a newfound love of mine. Martin finds inspiration in the environment that surrounds him. The headquarters of Martin Asbjørn is situated in the old military neighbourhood in the heart of Copenhagen, close to some of the most impressive constructions of modern architecture. He is fascinated by the male attributes and how the modern man is portrayed in music and in films.
I also (barely) had time to pass by GRAM to have a look at their upcoming collection and to freshen up with cocktails. I was also (barely) having dinner with the GRAM guys afterwards, but had to hurry from there to the Henrik Vibskov presentation. Oh well, at least I had time for starters. Hah.
I also had time to pop by a wonderful drinks event arranged by Esprit and apparently me and Corinna had color coordinated our shorts and skirts. At this point I was really tired, which you can tell from the picture.
This outfit was captured by Fucking Young and their lovely Adriano Batista (who by the way is joining me to Vancouver Fashion Week in the end of September).
This outfit was captured by Viktor from VS Photography and I loved his caption for it. “Thomas Falkenstedt is on track”…
