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!

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?

reminder for myself: Ieva, please check your drafts folder more often.
for some inexplicable reason, I haven’t shared this post with you guys. better later than never though!
going back to Berlin Fashion Week this January, you can’t mention Dorothee Scumacher. just look at the accessorizing – every detail is a must! and even if it’s an autumn/winter collection, I’m pretty sure it’s very up-to-date and a perfect inspiration for this spring.

best things happen when you don’t plan them – this rule has been stalking me forever. you might think this outfit was prepared weeks before but the story doesn’t sound like that at all. 
two hours before the INZI show I came to Toma’s loft. I changed my clothes, did a quick make up. I was completely unsatisfied with my look but luckily, Toma took us to ALL IS ONE studio which was a life saver. 
thanks to Virginija Valeišaitė, we both had a chance to wear these breathtaking outfits for the night.

this morning I have scrolled down through my favorite blogs and there were so many apologies for being silent and not posting! i could be one of them, but honestly, i don’t see the reason to make excuses. everybody needs holidays in summer, don’t you think? 
even though, i’ve realized how much i forgot to share with you here. so, i’ll try to fix my mistakes. 
few weeks ago square team was invited to visit H&M showroom in Vilnius. that day only you could see/touch/try on the latest fall/winter ’14 collection which was also showed during the Paris Fashion Week. love it all, i wouldn’t mind if some pieces accidentally slipped in my wardrobe. now would be the perfect timing. of course i couldn’t resist and tried on the most amazing piece of the collection – this shiny suit with oversized jacket. it might look really extravagant or a bit strange on the hanger but once you try it on it’s hard to take it off. i can totally imagine myself at a party looking like this.  
4th September is the magic date, wait for it to see everything in stores!
