COPENHAGEN — Nineties-inflected streetwear, Seventies prints and fur stood out on the cobblestone streets surrounding City Hall and at other show venues during the recent Copenhagen Fashion Week.

Labels like Vetements and Danish brand Muf10 have inspired street style, as attendees showed off their bombers, hoodies, oversize pieces, long sleeves and loose fits, paired with platform shoes, sneakers or high heels.

Bohemian looks are popular, based on cropped mom jeans, floral prints and a palette of burgundy, burnt brown, camel and petroleum. The Danes accessorize their looks with belts and bags — vintage Gucci logo bags are popular, along with floral-printed ones by the house’s current designer, Alessandro Michele.

Locals also wear fur in an offhand way and give it a youthful élan, wearing real and fake furs in bright colors and patterns, or as an accent on bags or jewelry.

Venues for the shows included the Hotel d’Angleterre, the Thorvaldsen Museum and the chilly Grey Hall, the concert hall in the Danish capital’s hippie borough of Christiania, where Bob Dylan performed back in the day.
