Playful colors and graphic prints stood out on the cobblestone streets surrounding City Hall and at other show venues during Copenhagen Fashion Week, which included the white tents of the Revolver trade fair in the Meatpacking District, the unrenovated warehouse facility Lokomotivværkstedet and the Danish capital’s sunny waterfront.
Attendees showed off lightweight summer coats, long tunics, loose trousers (in both cropped versions and long) and even the occasional cape. The more boho girls went for off-the-shoulder tops and cutoff denim skirts or Levi’s 501 jeans.
The Danes accessorized with a range of heels and sneakers, mostly square-shaped handbags and bicycles (often all at the same time.) “You can ride bikes in anything,” said Eva Kruse, chief executive officer of Copenhagen Fashion Week, wearing a skirt by local label Baum und Pferdgarten. “And if it rains, you just throw on a raincoat and you’ll have your silk dress and stilettos underneath.”
