CPH Fashion Week SS18 Diary Day 4
The last day of the Copenhagen Fashion Week was reserved for browsing around the fairs, scouting new trends and talking with some of the brands.
First stop was Revolver. I was supposed to see the Uniforms For The Dedicated show, but unfortunately I wasn’t able to get there in time. However, at their booth at Revolver I was able to touch and feel the products in real life. They are quite classic, minimalistic and are able to transcend beyond seasons. A piece from this collection won’t go out of style right away – like from so many other brands. One of my favourite trends from the SS18 collections, one that Uniforms really seized, are the utility pockets. You’re already starting to see these pockets now with the many military references that you find in the SS17 and AW17 collections. However this is going to be HUGE when we reach SS18. Insanely huge. What also was characteristic of the Uniforms For The Dedicated was the consistent use of pipes, as you’d usually see on a pyjamas. This made in particular the jackets stand out to me! It made the pieces somewhat elegant!
Next stop was All At Sea. I’ll take any chance simply to touch these products. These guys only produce using the finest silk! If in doubt of how you could style cool such a silk shirt, then have a look at the always cool guy Alexander Gram (Preppy Beast) who wore a All At Sea shirt during the fashion week.
During the third Day of CPHFW I went to see MFPEN showcase their SS18 collection. So when I stopped by the MFPEN booth I just had to inspect the products a little further. Here you really start to notice the details and work that has been put into the collection. Read more about the show here.
Last highlight from Revolver was Art Comes First. I’ve followed the guys on Instagram for about a year, after being introduced to them by a friend. These two guys running the brand continue to amaze me with their rock chic, dapper, fedora wearing style. What I found very cool from Art Comes First was their cohesive yet untraditional use of materials. Trousers with mixed fabrics, a denim jacket with bomber jacket sleeves and a neat “denim” jacket crafted from light weight leather – that one was hot!
I must admit that my energy levels was VERY low when I reached the Copenhagen International Fashion Fair (CIFF). However I quickly realised that the above mentioned utility pocket trend is far bigger than first assumed. Only very few brands – VERY FEW – did not play along.
A stop by Han Kjøbenhavn revealed that one of my favourite male show pieces actually will be produced. Something that you can never really rest assure on when it comes to show pieces.
The trip also allowed for a close inspection of the Holzweiler SS18 collection. I’m honestly very excited about this brand, and hope to see it more frequently roaming the streets. They manage to maintain a clean scandinavian minimalistic approach while involving many sportswear references. Great job guys!
Last but not least was there time for a talk with the guys from SPO (Sand). If you like clean cuts and not so much bull shit, then you’re going to like the SS18 collection.
WHAT I WORE
The fourth outfit in this fashion week series is based on a more loose fit. An oversized Samsøe Samsøe statement t-shirt that almost has some supreme esque aesthetic. This t-shirt was tucked into a pair of pleated trousers from Whyred, and at the feet a pair of well crafted brogues. On my eyes were a pair of VIU eyewear sunglasses.
