Presented via a blurred black-and-white video depicting a single model standing still on a podium, Jannik Wikkelsø Davidsen’s fall collection was punchy.
Its dark tinge and gritty aesthetics triggered a discomforting feel, although under the edgy surface laid vaguely ‘80s sartorial silhouettes and even basics such as track pants and ribbed tank tops, or see-through silk shirts.
“For me, it’s about creating something sensitive, something beautiful using the intensity of darkness as the core of everything,” the Danish designer said.
The model wore broad-shouldered leather overcoats and trenchcoats paired with flared pants cut extra wide, neat pantsuits accentuated by metallic armholes, and double-breasted tuxedos.
Most of the looks were accessorized with furry boots reminiscent of horse legs. Much like the entire collection, they looked bizarre but captivating.
