PERFECT PAIRINGS

RAIINE_AW15_LOOKBOOK_V002_CROPPED copy Perfect pieces on their own and paired with each other. That tunic really makes me long for summer, sandy beaches and palm trees. Perhaps it’s time to start thinking about a reunion with LA…

The look is from Raiine’s AW15 collection that will hit the stores in July.

THE COPENHAGEN AW15 REPORT

baumBAUM UND PFERDGARTEN

Baum und Pferdgarten once again makes my heart race with a collection that has my name (and yours?) written all over it. The coats are all to-die-for, and then there’s the lace up suede top and dress that I cannot wait to get my hands on. Not to mention the lace skirt with the matching top. The collection is more grown-up than usual but it still has that cool and quirky spirit that Baum und Pferdgarten is known (and loved) for.

This dress. No more words needed.

birgeraw15_4BY MALENE BIRGER

When someone sends a model dressed in a cognac-coloured leatherskirt down the runway I’m head over heels. Add to that the perfect boyish suit and a night blue coat and I’m sold. By Malene Birger once again established itself as the go-to-label for elegant and easy-to-wear classics that will stay in your closet for a long time.

bbBRUUNS BAZAAR

The more I look at this collection, the more I love it. It’s fair to say that it was a silky affair on the catwalk at Bruuns Bazaar where silk was used for everything from elegant dresses and shirts to skirts and pants. I especially loved the silky touch when it was layered with tailored pieces (think silk dress with miniskirt or silk pants with blazer) or when contrasted with wollen fabrics but the piece that caught my attention (and wish list) the most was the black lamé dress.

 

markdominotanMARK KENLY DOMINO TAN

Undoubtedly the brightest star on the Danish sky of talents. Mark Kenly Domino Tan creates timeless yet stand-out pieces with a strong focus on tailoring, fabrics and a flattering silhouette. The cropped leather jacket and the grey top with flute-like sleeves were among my favorites, and suddenly a rust-coloured coat with a metallic belt never felt more right.

Looking for a statement fur? Make it this one.

 

remixaw15DESIGNERS REMIX

Refreshning and cool. Designers Remix are bringing back the 1970s for autumn – a welcome step away from the usual very minimal and streamlined look that characterises Designers Remix. It’s a clever collection that works no matter if you are into the seventies trend or not: wear the shearling jacket with skinny pants, or the black midi-skirt with a shirt, and you’ve got a whole other look.

It’s sexy, it’s edgy, and I’m looking for an excuse to dress myself in a laced maxi-dress…

 

nørgaard1

nørgaard2MADS NØRGAARD

I was sad to miss out on the Mads Nørgaard show where models had been cast from the street to walk the runway (in their own clothing) alongside signed models – and with Communions playing live at the back. Mads Nørgaard was inspired by the energy of the streets of Copenhagen and delivered a collection full of stripes (that’s his trademark), tailored blazers, and high-waisted jeans but most importantly a happiness that reminded us what fashion is really about: being yourself.

 

veronicavallenes

veronicaVERONICA B. VALLENES

It didn’t take Veronica B. Vallenes more than a few seasons to earn her reputation as the ultra elegant and timeless choice for cool girls. Think silk trousers, boxy outerwear, ladylike skirts, barely-there details and a long, lean silhouette. The musthave for autumn? Definitely the cropped trench.

 

ganniaw15GANNI

It’s the talk of town, and it’s easy to see why. Ganni is on a roll and in no time the brand has transformed itself into the label everyone wants to wear, and that without compromising with its concept of creating affordable fashion that’s both timeless, on-trend and not your typical Scandi-label. The AW15 collection is simply amazing, and I’m swooning over everything from the checked high-neck and navy peacoat to the paisley printed midi-skirt, monochrome dress and strappy heels.

CLOSE-UP

15/01/30 - 12:34

birgerdetailSo many good things coming out of Copenhagen these days… With the fashion week in full swing I’m glued to the screen eagerly awaiting all the show pictures, which is the closest I’ll get to #cphfw this season. Tonight By Malene Birger showed its AW15 collection, and my heart skipped a beat when this fringed top (with matching skirt) appeared. So far Autumn is looking mighty fine.

 

TOP 5 STOCKHOLM

15/01/29 - 12:33

Stockholm is the hometown to a bunch of my favorite go-to designers and for this reason also one of my favorite stops of all the fashion weeks. Sadly I couldn’t be there this season but that’s no excuse to not share my favorite collections with you anyways.

2_favorite_carinwesterCARIN WESTER

The AW15 collection takes its inspiration from the late 1970s and sees Carin Wester playing with layers and cuts, and the result is an elegant, powerful and a more grown-up collection than seen in the previous seasons.

4_favorite_filippakFILIPPA K

Filippa K delivered one of their strongest collections ever with lots of chunky knitwear, tailored pieces and an elegant silhouette. Never did cognac coloured leather look this good.

9_favorite_altewaiALTEWAISAOME

Here’s one that never disappoints. The clean lines and the strong attention to details make my heart jump season after season, and the AW15 collection is no exception. I want it all.

1_favorite_whyredWHYRED

Take a cue from Whyred, and make room in your wardrobe for lots of grey the coming fall. The key-word to remember is contrast – like when an elegant lace dress is layered with the perfectly oversized woollen coat.

7_favorite_hunkydoryHUNKYDORY

Hunkydory masters the edgy look like few but for the AW15 season the skinny leatherpants, silky shirts and bikerjackets will be accompanied by a softer and more relaxed silhouette.

Psst… Click on each of the designers to see their entire AW15 collections.

Make-up wise there where few surprises at London Fashion Week, the no-make-up trend with a 90’s twist was big here too. Luckily there are always shows that stands out a little extra and this season the once I picked out all had something in common, black details!

Oh, Dolce & Gabbana how I love how the two of you portrait mothers! Because that is what Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2015 was, a celebration to mothers. Classy, sexy, elegant and very feminine mothers. A winged eyeliner and red lips a messy undo with hair accessories. We have seen it before but it never […]

Missoni followed the stream this season and did as all of the big names – aimed for the seventies. While the others took inspiration from the fashion, Missoni Fall 2015 really reminded us of the interior colors and the retro furniture. The colors looked like they were taken straight from a sofa in a retro […]

Did you know that coconut oil is anti-viral and anti-fungal? That is actually supports healthy metabolism and promotes weight loss? I knew that, but I didn’t know it is because of 3 fatty acids Caprylic Acid, Capric Acid and Lauric Acid. And I didn’t know that our body converts lauric acid into monolaurin that can […]

Alberta Ferretti Fall 2015 made an extended version of Wednesday in The Addams Family. Girly yet not girly. Imagine her in her early twenties, just discovered Dracula red and playing with lace details. The collection over all felt old-fashioned in a good way. A cocky side of the 18th century. The common thing were the thigh-high […]
