Copenhagen Fashion Week | The Highlights

Last week the MyBag team headed to Copenhagen to see what the best Scandinavian fashion houses have to offer for Spring/Summer ’16. Minimal Scandi design is something we get really excited about; clean, sleek and easy to wear, these designers manage to produce covetable items season after season that are trend-led as well as timeless.

Subtle ‘70s styles were the order of the day at By Malene Birger, showing this trend is going absolutely nowhere. Rib knit two-pieces in eclectic prints and neutral shades were a firm favourite of designer Christina Exsteen’s, as were fitted and loose tunics over wide leg trousers and culottes. Dresses came in long and midi lengths with asymmetric hems, while leather, tassles and velvet added texture to the collection. As for accessories, big slouchy shoulder bags in terracotta, burgundy and navy were worn at the hip as though a large clutch. Shop By Malene Birger at MyBag

Baum und Pferdgarten

With a playful take on feminine clothing, Baum und Pferdgarten is known for its clashing prints and sports-inspired pieces – and this collection was no different. The ‘70s was a clear reference here too, with wide legged jumpsuits and floral maxi dresses featuring throughout. Delicate lace and loose-fitting silk were used in everything from embroidered black jackets to sheer lace flared trousers, with stand-out pieces including a silk striped pyjama-style jumpsuit and brown belted jacket.

Marrying Parisian chic with Scandinavian minimalism, Danish label Ganni takes inspiration from vintage and contemporary designs to create fresh, modern feminine clothing. With ‘optimism’ being the main inspiration behind the collection, yellow was used in floral prints, sleeveless polo necks and stripes. Slouching suiting and cropped flared trousers also made an appearance, as did belted leather jackets and silky, pyjama-inspired two pieces. Accessories were kept to a minimum, with large tote bags worn on both shoulders as though a backpack.
