Copenhagen Fashion Week may not be one of the big four but season after season it proves its importance to the industry. Buzzy new labels, cult brands and of course, heaps of street-style inspiration are promised when the Nordic brands hit the runway. Over the past few years, Scandinavian style has carved out its own sartorial identity and iconic brands have become internationally appreciated—think Ganni, Saks Potts, Gestuz, Stine Goya and Remain, to name just a few.
Aside from watching what the coolest brands are bringing for spring/summer 2023, the fashion set look to the streets of Copenhagen for their inspiring outfits and clever styling. Attendees are just as influential as the shows themselves, and we’ve noticed a few trends in what the stylish Scandinavian crowd is wearing right now.
Handily enough, our Editor-in-Chief Hannah Almassi, is currently in attendance at Copenhagen Fashion Week, and has a few observations of her own as far as the street style is concerned. “The Scandi set did not come to play! They are already jumping headfirst into AW22 looks despite the fact that there is a heatwave here. That means full trouser suits, knits, coats, boots and more have been more present than one might imagine. There’s a strong impact of Y2K across the board, from cowboy boots worn with teeny tiny skirts through to low-rise trousers, baby tees, flouro colours and a whole lot of Balenciaga’s Le Cagole bag.”
