Copenhagen Fashion Week: Day 1 & 2
Finally time to write to you about Copenhagen Fashion Week. It was my first time attending, which ment that I had to do a lot of work before I could actually go there. In the end I managed to get invited to 20 shows! But, since Copenhagen Fashion Week is so big, and the distances between the shows were quite long, I didn't manage to make it there on time to all of the shows..
Arriving to Copenhagen was such a dream. Imagine leaving from -6 celsius and snow in Norway to plus 6 degrees celsius in Copenhagen with no snow under our feet! It really felt like spring. We went and checked into out hotel, before we had to hurry to the first show which was Blanche; an up-and-coming brand that makes interesting basics with sporty details.
We were really hungry after the show, because we had not eaten since the airport in Oslo. We decided to go to Café Norden which is quite a touristy place but they have the best nachos ever! Just look at the photo below, my mouth is watering just by thinking of eating that right now. After we finished the nachos, we decided to walk to the next show, which took like 30-40 minutes.. It was very exhausting, but also refreshing to get some "exercise" into our day.
After the Oh! by Kopenhagen Fur show, we went to dinner with our friends Julie and Sonia, were we had delicious authentic italian pizza. Then we went to sleep..
The next day started of with us checking out of the hotel, and into Skt. Petri which was the official fashion week hotel. We checked into a beautiful suite which included a bedroom, a living room, a bathroom and a separate toilet. It was so nice to have a big space for our belongings, since it was in fact fashion week, and we were three staying in the room. Just imagine the mess, with everyone changing multiple times a day into different outfits.
Right after check-in we had to rush over to the first show of the day which was the J.Lindeberg show. It was a really sporty collection, mainly consisting of black and white clothing, but also surprising colors like blue, orange and yellow.
Wearing: H&M blouse, Rodebjer dress, Acne Studios beanie, H&M tights, Just Female bag and MSGM shoes.
After the J.Lindeberg show, I was supposed to go to the Martin Asbjørn show, but we didn't manage to grab a taxi quick enough so we missed the show.. We drove back to the hotel, before I headed over to the Anne Vest show. She showcased a lot of colorful fur jackets with interesting details. Unfortunately I only took videos and no photos.. After the Anne Vest show, I went back to the hotel to change, before we got in a cab to try to make it to the Freya Dalsjø show.
Wearing: By Malene Birger pants and blazer, Marimekko shirt, Decadent bag, Komono sunglasses and H&M earrings.
The Freya Dalsjø show was defiantly the show I was most excited to see during Copenhagen Fashion Week. I love her take on tailoring, making it super edgy and cool! Next show up was the By Malene Birger presentation. I really adore By Malene Birger, and I constantly wear her pieces. The black suit I wore for the show, had a green shimmery sheen to it, making it an interesting take on tailoring, which I do think both Freya Dalsjø and By Malene Birger have in common.
The last two shows of the day ended up being Holzweiler and Bitte Kai Rand for us. Holzweiler really represented the Norwegian culture in their show with warm coats and hats, accessorized with snow boots and backpacks. After the Bitte Kai Rand show, we headed back to out hotel where we got ready to go to an event, but decided last minute that we would rather eat McDonalds and relax. As one do during fashion week, or maybe its only us? haha.
