The Danish capital played host to a flood of fashion industry professionals eager to witness the presentations of the Spring/Summer 2014 collections of today’s most relevant Nordic designers. We were not going to be the ones who missed out!

Here’s a small selection of designers who really caught our eye during Copenhagen Fashion Week:

 

Asger Juel Larsen was given the task of inaugurating the week and, using the working title “A triple distilled dream”, the Danish designer presented his 2014 summer collection. Black and white play the starring roles here in a multitude of garments where both tailoring and new textures and materials are of more importance than the design itself. Having said that, Asger Juel Larsen was never going to end the show without surprising everyone with a series of looks that featured stunning prints in pure ‘nigga’ style.

Wood Wood chose the historic Glyptotek art museum for the presentation of their 2014 collection, with a top-level front row that starred Louis Vuitton Hommes designer, Kim Jones. The proposal is basically a sport styling but with added touches of class and elegance. Loose-fitting shirts, wide-legged pants and sailor-striped jackets are just some of the Danish firm’s ‘must have’ proposals for next summer.

For the next show it’s time to visit La Borsa to witness the show by designer Han Kjobenhavn, where a fascinating montage features a white carpet that occupies most of the hall and, in the middle, a table tennis table. The show starts and you suddenly realise that you are a participant in a game of table tennis with the best players in the city but they are putting on a fashion show at the same time. This is designer Han Kjobenhavn’s contribution to the union of fashion and sport.
A collection in which ‘oversize’ reigns in all the looks and the highlights include bomber jackets, short pants with a variety of prints and overcoats with asymmetrical zippers.

Now let’s leave aside extravagant designs, new materials and complex patterns for a moment and take a closer look at the world of Veronica B. Vallenes and her collection for next summer. We sense that we could just as easily be witnessing a Paris fashion week presentation as Veronica B. focuses on garments that emphasise the female figure while adding a feminist, sensual touch to all her looks. The principles colours are ochres and whites but there is still plenty of room for reddish tones which help to add a little more definition to the spring/summer collection.

And, finally, we have Jean//phillip which, in my opinion, was the best men’s collection presented during Copenhagen Fashion Week. Animal prints formed the basis of all the garments, along with the legendary black, and the somewhat androgynous collection included semi-transparent shirts, leather shorts, jackets with asymmetrical openings and an unending list of garments that could be classified as unisex – a collection that brought to mind Marcelo Burlón.
