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.
Exclusive: @tommyhilfiger has tapped 22-year-old actress @zendaya to be his newest collaborator and together they will launch a see-now-buy-now collection in February. Speaking to WWD about the project, the Spider-Man actress said: “Fashion is more than just wearing cool clothes. It’s a way to celebrate self-expression and individuality, which is extremely empowering. This is why I am proud to partner with Tommy Hilfiger.” Tap the link in bio for the full scoop. #TommyXZendaya #wwdfashion
