If anyone asks me how was the Copenhagen Fashion Week, I say I loved it in a second. So many great collections, such a stylish crowd around, such a cool city to be in – how could you not?
What I like the most about Scandinavian fashion is that it almost looks as if the designers’ team was working under no pressure. Which is probably not true at all, but just the feeling of not making too much effort makes the atmosphere so relaxed and that is one of the main things I look up to in fashion. Simplicity is the key. Am I right?-
Before the autumn comes I want to share the top SS17 collections from Copenhagen Fashion Week. There is no first or second here, I am not rating them. It’s just the ones that I subjectively enjoyed the most. Hopefully you did/will too.
-I will start with Fonnesbech
(picture above). A brand, that has a suprisingly long history in a fashion world. It was founded in 1847 and grew from a small basement shop to an exclusive department store, to a successful brand later on, that stands for high quality, sophisticated and responsible fashion.
Classy with a twist – that is how I would describe the SS17 collection and that would also be quite an accurate description of the brand as a whole. Sun bleached color range and flexible silluethes, as well as the set of the runway and the live music, created a very relaxed atmosphere.
Every piece in it is pretty much what I would add to my pinterest
board these days. Even if there was nothing unexpected, I praise Fonnesbech for giving the modern feeling while standing true to their brand. Well done, Mia Lisa Spon!
Oh how much I love this city. Copenhagen streets are definitely one of the most beautiful to wander.
When a few fashion week events are in your schedule, you obviously think about what you’re going to wear. I took an easy road here. Couple of days before my flight I went to STUDIO KAROLINA’s studio and basically robbed it. Which I don’t regret at all, every piece I wore got tons of compliments and definitely helped me to stand out in the crowd. So THANK YOU Karolina and go go go girl! There are lots of talented lithuanians out there but for me personally, STUDIO KAROLINA
is one of the brands that really stands out and since she is still very young, I think she could and should do a lot in perspective.
And since this post has become a thank you post, I would also like to thank my friend Viktorija for being a wonderful host! And a great photographer, too #filmisnotdead
If you follow my Instagram, you obviously know what I’ve been doing last week. It was hard to miss such thing. If you not (although you know you should), oh well, keep on reading. I’ve been attending Copenhagen Fashion Week shows and events and now, since I’m back home, I’m going to post series of posts about it.
So, here is the very first part of my three days in Copenhagen.
I started out the fashion week by attending breakfast at Tommy Hilfiger showroom. After an early 7AM flight, that was a great kick putting me in a fashion week mood. Coffee, tasty breakfast snacks, stylish people and pretty clothes around – who would refuse a chance to start a day like that?
raincoat – Dear Freedom
, shoes – Truffle Collection, socks – COS, maxi dress – Weekday
Coats are definitely my thing and raincoats.. Well I love them even more! I think that’s one of the reasons why I’m not complaining about this autumn-like summer so much. Stop whining, put on a beautiful raincoat instead – you’ll get that tan next year.
This grey beauty is from new Lithuanian brand Dear Freedom
and there’s no better feeling than supporting local talents, especially when they do it so right. Check out their page HERE
, summer sale is on too!
