COPENHAGEN — Feminine maxidresses, flower prints and bold colors flooded the cobblestone streets during the recent Copenhagen Fashion Week, which wrapped here on Friday. The three-day event took place in various venues throughout Copenhagen’s Meatpacking District as well as The Lab photo studio, the Amager Bio music venue and the garden of the Glyptotekshaven museum.
Nineties-inflected streetwear — think bombers and hoodies inspired by labels like Vetements — were all the rage last season in Copenhagen, and the influence continued this time around with logo-branded T-shirts, wide-leg trousers and tons of denim. Other Danes paired their posh designer handbags with vintage rock band T-shirts and mixed prints. Despite the chilly temps, some attendees favored sandals and lightweight looks, such as pajama-inspired blouses and trousers.
“We’re not the chicest people; we’re not the most fashionable people, but I think we’re very cool,” said Danish model Nadja Bender, sporting a leopard printed jacket, cropped denim pants and a Ganni T-shirt from the spring 2017 collection festooned with the words “Space Cowboy.” “The thing is to be comfortable because we have to go from A to B. You won’t see a business woman in high heels, which I kind of like.”
