Something Old, Something New

Copenhagen Fashion Week - Cecilie Bahnsen

This collection nailed spring/summer in every sense of the word simply by including whimsical fabrics, baby doll style silhouettes and loads of pastels.  It was love at first sight for me after seeing pictures of this collection.  I am a huge fan a drop waisted dress, but when you add a petticoat underneath to create the most adorable baby doll shape I literally see hearts.  Models came down the runway like figurines.


I will say this collection was very cohesive with a solid theme - girlie.  In mostly black and white, there were splashes of light pink and gold to grace the runway.  However, I don't expect much color from the scandi parts of the world.  Models wore minimal makeup, hair pulled back in center part with plaited pigtails, and very thin, simple black headbands.  

CPHFW - By Malene Birger

Hi guys, I am back to finish off my SS18 Copenhagen Fashion Week recap.    First up we have By Malene Birger, a label started by Malene Birger back in 2003.  Since inception, the label has gained international fame thanks to popular online stockist such as Net A Porter. 


Not to be taken in a negative way, but I was initially drawn to the accessories (particular those earrings).   I am a huge fan of geometric shaped accessories at the moment so those white circle earrings caught my eye rather quickly.  The structured handbags were also a big hit for me. Donned with beautiful snake prints and bright colors, I have to have one of these bags.  Now on to the clothes, inspired by the city of Sao Paolo. I immediately noticed the influences of the rainforest and city living.  I found the collection to be very commercial and easily digestible for the actual consumer.  The leather like, pleather trenchcoat and high waisted shorts were very strong pieces that I know will trickle down to the high street and possibly become key pieces next SS.
