Taking the coolest boys and girls to a botanical garden is what the Spring/Summer 2014 Bruuns Bazaar collection properly recalled. Just like we expected – since artists and architects are the constant inspirational sources of the Danish brand, the season wasn’t an exception either; their inspiration drew upon a bunch of German architects that challenged traditional construction with living plants under the term ‘Baubotanic’. Due to the many pretty floral prints and delicate lines, the result was rather refreshing; subtly feminine and effortlessly cool predicting the season’s laid back must-haves. The show that took place at the green courtyard of the company’s headquarters already suggested the brand’s ‘close to the nature’ approach, displaying the shades of beige, navy purples and popping light tones for the sake of a fresh touch. We are currently dying for the flower embroidered sweatshirts and the pure white tomboy dress, not to mention the sunnies and matching loafers…
Die coolsten Jungs und Mädels zu einem Botanischen Garten mitnehmen, das ist, woran die Frühjahr/Sommer 2014 Bruuns Bazaar Kollektion tatsächlich erinnert. (more…)
As a queen of Danish fashion, Malene Birger behind the by Malene Birger label is blurring the boundaries between Scandinavian minimalism and effortless Parisian sophistication. The celebrated Danish designer creates for the woman with the crave for power and effeminacy in this ever-rushing era. The collection that embraced both business-like outfits and dreamy summer gowns meant to emphasise individuality as the biggest treasure one can posses. The signature Birger-trademarks were featured in terms of the colour palette varying from blacks through pinks to pure whites, while the edgy mens-tailoring feel did not fade away either. We especially loved the designer’s take on the flowing pants-shirt-blazer match, just as the gradient from-white-to-pink maxi skirt and pleated sheer detailing. I guess we know what to save some money for…
Als eine Königin der dänischen Mode lässt Malene Birger hinter dem Label by Malene Birger die Grenzen zwischen skandinavischem Minimalismus und müheloser Pariser Eleganz verschwimmen. Die gefeierte dänische Designerin kreiert für die Frau mit dem Streben nach Macht und Femininität in dieser immer übereilten Ära. (more…)
Because the Finnish knows how to colour up your lives – Finnish brand Marimekko provides you not only with clothes for the body but with clothes for your home as well. The lifestyle brand has just shown its Spring/Summer 2014 collection during Copenhagen Fashion Week and opened its awaited store on the shopping street of the Danish capital last week, showcasing both garments and interior goods. Asymmetric stripes, endless flower prints and intense colour mixes ruled the catwalk at the Radhus for a moment – providing the brightest refreshment among the Scandinavian designers together with Moonspoon Saloon. I believe that a Marimekko piece is a must have in every woman’s wardrobe with an attitude to enhance a joyous life. No matter what the next season’s trend forecast is, Marimekko’s imagery always take the fun approach in terms of colours and shapes while predicting the idea of ‘always look on the bright side of life’ feeling.
Weil die Finnen wissen, wie sie euer Leben bunter gestalten – die finnische Marke Marimekko bietet nicht nur Kleidung für euren Körper sondern auch Kleidung für euer Zuhause. (more…)

Currently sitting on a rooftop in the Slovenian mountains and zipping my late lemonade, I felt a sudden inspiration for summing up our Copenhagen Fashion Week experiences. This was my 5th season being active during the Fashion Week in the Danish capital but the very first time covering it for SilkSoFine. Luckily the season brought us many shows, launch parties, connections and a bunch of inspiration and experience that is hard to express through words – I guess I can still feel some excitement as I recall the events. On the very first day we’ve got six shows in a row starting with some backstage work and ending with SilkSoFine’s scandinavian love, Henrik Vibskov.
I almost forgot, the night before we enjoyed some stunning garments and bubbly drinks at the Vanessa Bruno x Tomorrow’s Journal launch in the heart of Copenhagen. The second day wasn’t any less rich in action; among others Wood Wood, the finnish interior and clothing brand Marimekko, and Han Kjøbenhavn got place on our busy schedule next to the Marimekko store opening, some chit-chat with Yvan Rodic, and the Wood Wood after party. The last day is always the best, even though the hours of sleep you had doesn’t reach four, the buzzing fashion atmosphere makes up all the tiredness – seven shows, a backstage interview and a sparkling after party was on the menu. The very next day, last but not least we were invited to an exclusive Georg Jensen collection review accompanied with luxurious drinks and beats by the talented voice, Oh Land who’s also the face of the latest jewellery collection of the eponymous danish brand. Not bad right?
Während ich hier auf dem Dach in den slowenischen Bergen sitze und eine späte Limonade trinke, fühle ich eine plötzlich Inspiration, wie ich am besten unsere Erlebnisse der Kopenhagen Fashion Week zusammenfassen könnte. Das war für mich die 5. Saison, in der ich während der Fashion Week in der dänischen Hauptstadt aktiv war, aber das aller erste Mal, dass ich für SilkSoFine da war. (more…)
Before summing up our Copenhagen Fashion Week adventures for you guys, I wanted you to meet with one of our favourite brands, Wood Wood that is renown of its minimal, sporty and effortlessly cool styles. The SS14 collection, titled Utopia is very sporty, much like Wood Wood’s previous collections, with a heavy influence on baseball – that is not least beautifully contrasted the show venue, the museum of the ancient cultures of the Mediterranean, Danish and French art, called Glyptotek. The overall prints and signature ‘W’-s applied on fine cottons boosted the contemporary look together with the rich textures, this time with a dash of elegance to balance the Nike Free runs and cute braids. The sporty silhouettes and hidden details result proper Scandinavian coolness, and most of all predict the Spring/Summer 2014 must-haves. The collection – both showcasing mens and womenswear was definitely our kind of a show and our kind of a utopia.
Bevor ich unsere Kopenhagen Fashion Week Erlebnisse für euch zusammenfassen, möchte ich euch mit einer meiner Lieblingsmarken bekannt machen, Wood Wood, die Bekanntheit erlangt haben mit ihren minimalen, sportlichen und mühelos coolen Styles. (more…)
‘EST.1995 Benedikte Utzon Wardrobe is a Danish clothing company aiming for the fashion conscious woman who wants to express her personal style with unique designs in beautiful shades’ – is what the EST.1995 Benedikte Utzon Wardrobe show reflected perfectly as well the other day during Copenhagen Fashion Week. The show was held at Copenhagen’s City Hall – as most of the others, but there was something different; cosy reddish lights and a ‘carpet’ of pink roses indicated the models way on the catwalk. Despite the Spring/Summer collection, fur was again on the catwalk, beautifully matching the slightly sporty, yet rather feminine pieces. Throughout the entire collection the fashionable woman was present who loves simple, functional and at the same time very chic looks. In the collection, light fabrics such as silk or sheers and heavier materials as fur or leather were mixed to give a sense of Utzon-like lightness and glamour.

The much awaited Copenhagen Fashion Week is yet to come so it’s time to refresh some memories from last season. To start with a truly and eternally beloved one – by staying loyal to her signature style, Stine Goya invited us to a trip to the Moon with her latest Autumn/Winter 2013 collection. The designer – blessed with a great imagination – took the inspiration from the movie called ‘A trip to the Moon’, which was one of the first movies with special effects. Stine added colour splashes to the otherwise mostly pastel palette completed with some black and white pieces, which she topped with foil-print effects and golden details for the sake of recalling the textures of the moon. The inevitable golden elements and specifically mosaic prints are the key details season after season, which strongly belong to Stine’s world and way of adding hand-embroidered details. Her magic talent to create poetic and beautiful collections that are embracing designs with a story behind literally shined through again. Watch the new ‘A trip to the Moon’ short film a la Stine Goya!
