See The Most Colorful Street Style At Copenhagen Fashion Week

Photo: Nabile Quenum

Copenhagen is known as one of the happiest cities in the world — despite the reputation that Danes only wear black. This week, Copenhagen Fashion Week inspired the opposite: People wore lots of color on the streets.
Photographer Nabile Quenum saw bright-red cross-body bags (and a great orange Balenciaga mini bag), fuchsia sock-heels, and lavender sweaters peeking through unbuttoned khaki dusters. The beauty looks were just as colorful: jewel-tone eye shadow, rosy lips, and sparkling eyebrows.
Hygge, the trendy Danish word for coziness, was apparent in some casual outfits, like oversize dress-shirts and athletic shoes you’d find in your dad’s closet. Click ahead to see how Danes do Copenhagen Fashion Week off the runway.

Danish Models Are Having a Moment, Just In Time For Copenhagen Fashion Week

07-rodarte-backstage-spring-18

Fashion has always had a special affinity for Danish beauties, from the arresting sexiness of 1980s supermodels like Renee Simonsen and Helena Christensen to the cool-girl charms of modern superstars Freja Beha Erichsen and Caroline Brasch Nielsen. The latest generation to emerge from the Scandinavian country continues to bring personality and fresh-faced beauty to the scene—not to mention a few killer runway struts, of course. These seven stunning Danes making waves on the international market are the girls to know now.

Love Copenhagen? Meet Denmark’s Other Coolest City

01-holding-aarhus-denmark
Hidden away on the craggy Jutland Peninsula, Aarhus was never the most popular destination in Europe. The majority of visitors to Denmark would rather spend an extra day in Copenhagen than take a three-hour train journey along the east coastline. And although Aarhus has always had a reputation as The City of Smiles, a smile isn’t exactly the number one priority when booking your dream trip. But around 12 years ago, the city was elected as the European Cultural Capital for 2017. And so, it began to primp and preen for the monumental year destined to place it on the main stage, amongst some of Europe’s other great cities. Today, Aarhus has the perfect mix of small town charm and Copenhagen-cool. And of course, it hasn’t...

In Copenhagen, a City Filled With Innovative Design, Fashion Is Slowly Catching Up

00-holding-cop-round-up
Denmark is proud to have a history associated with provocative design. It’s a country that has given the world the silversmith Georg Jensen, the architect Finn Juhl, and the carpenter Hans Wegner. The capital city of Copenhagen is considered a mecca for those obsessed with Scandinavian minimalism (and cool, cult home lines like Normann and Hay). When it comes to fashion, however, that sharply focused and innovative craftsmanship hasn’t always crossed over onto the runway. The divide between fashion design and home and industrial design in Copenhagen is quite wide, with only a handful of popular, impressive designers like Henrik Vibskov, Cathrine Saks and Barbara Potts of Saks Potts, and Ganni’s Ditte Reffstrup having managed to successfully market their individual...

Never Mind French Girl Style—We Want to Cop the Looks of These Stylish Danes

Photographed by Søren Jepsen
Is it something in the water? Nature? Nurture? Whatever the cause, anyone would be hard-pressed to deny that Scandinavians indeed boast an almost preternaturally keen eye when it comes to style. Consider homegrown Danish fashion heroes like Freja Beha Erichsen, Pernille Teisbaek, Caroline Brasch Nielsen, and Rie Rasmussen, to name but a few. Head to Copenhagen, where the capital’s Fashion Week has just kicked off today, and you’ll encounter a veritable army of fresh-faced women (and men) biking in their camel coats and Acne Studios leather jackets, teamed with knits and other finds from deliciously offbeat local heroes like Henrik Vibskov, et al. They coast through the city looking picture-perfect on their bicycles; today this reporter watched one girl gamely...
