COPENHAGEN — “Welcome to a lessperate 2004.” Printed in large letters across the banner behind the Odd Molly booth at the CPH Vision Show, that promise of less desperate — or “lessperate” — times characterized the good humor and high spirits of the four-day fashion event.
Where else can you find collections with names like Acne Action Jeans, Arrogant Cat, Blazing Kitten, Blonde & Beyond, Gentlemen Take Polaroids, Gossip, It’sfashiondarling, Junk Deluxe, Lustwear, Nudie Jeans, Son of a Stag, Whipping Floyd, et al? The comment most often heard in Copenhagen was, “Fashion’s not all that serious, after all,”yet CPH Vision is definitely a working, versus a partying, trade show.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
