COPENHAGEN — Copenhagen Fashion Week was anything but minimalist, with showgoers donning Puka shells — on necklaces, bracelets, anklets and belts — as a complement to their colorful, printed dresses. Handheld fans and flip-flops became the unofficial symbol of the three-day showcase as many tried to combat the heat that draped itself over the city.
Tailored jackets and Stan Smiths are a thing of the past, and Scandinavian street style is upping its game. Brands have been pushing their boundaries, too, taking a fresh and experimental approach to spring collections, unveiled during the three-day showcase and at the accompanying trade shows Copenhagen International Fashion Fair, or CIFF, and Revolver.
Ganni turned over a new leaf for spring 2019, reports @fionawsma from Copenhagen Fashion Week. Instead of sending its signature floral-print dresses down the runway, the brand collaborated with 66 North, a technical outerwear brand, and produced a chic-yet-utilitarian offering that included a tie-dye vest and short set, and leopard-print pieces sprinkled among the khaki parkas and bucket hats. #wwdfashion #ganni #copenhagenfashionweek

“I’ve been an actress since I was like 10 or 12, and then I went to drama school. I have a technique, and I have a process that I bring to every role. And I can talk about it, but that kind of makes it less magic, and also when I talk about it, it makes me feel like I’m full of myself,” ‘Crazy Rich Asians Star’ Constance Wu tells @leighen .(📸: @emmanmontalvan: styled by @micaelaerlanger ) #wwdeye #crazyrichasians #constancewu
