While New York Fashion Week typically lasts seven days and Paris lasts an average of nine days, the Copenhagen festivities are all packed into a 72-hour schedule. But just because it’s one of the shortest fashion weeks on the calendar doesn’t mean there’s a lack of talent. On the contrary, some of the industry’s most discussed emerging designers are showing off their collections in three days, which means Copenhagen’s Fall / Winter 2021 trends are the ones you’ll see on the street in no time.
In the Danish capital, you can count on designers to create a runway event that also serves as a social media show. For Spring/Summer 2020, publishers and influencers danced in the rain of GANNI and recorded it on their Instagram pages for everyone to see. This season, despite the absence of important designers like Saks Potts and Cecilie Bahnsen, there was still a lot to do during the three-day marathon. In fact, designers have found creative ways to engage their audience during a month of digital fashion. Take Munthe, who used the corridors of a camp as a trail, while the tree and horse garden sent a set to influencers around the world to strike for his digital Lookbook. If you want to take another look at Scandinavian style, scroll down below to find seven trends that were at the top during Copenhagen Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2021.
Copenhagen Fashion Week trend: sweater vest in abundance
If you like the return of the sweater vest trend, good news: designers have proved that it will no longer be big next autumn. Of course, the Ganni and Baum and Horse Garden ranges were full of cool printed sweater vests, while Malene Birger showed a more restrained iteration of knitting.
Copenhagen Fashion Week Trend: Color Blocking
While checkerboard printing continues to be a big hit this season, it has a new competition: color blocking. Take RIXO, who played with rich colors and neutral colors in his blocked color coat. Alternatively, Stine Goya and RODEBJER went with several punchy pastels displayed on knitwear and scarves.
Copenhagen Fashion Week Trend: Printed Tights
Next fall, be ready to conquer the cold in style. Designers have shown that all tights be black. Instead, they argued that the more details, the better. This was the event with Stine Goya with her abstract tights, as well as GANNI, who opted for a cool lime green print. But if you are not too far from your neutral stockings, take the Marine patterned style of the tree and horse garden.
Copenhagen Fashion Week Trend: Shiny Boots
Do you want to incorporate color slowly into your winter wardrobe? Well, opting for a funny shiny boot might be the way to go. Consider taking notes from GANNI and marrying a neon boot with a pointed suit. Or, if you wake up a little more adventurous, get inspired by Stine Goya and the tree and the horse garden by combining the shoe with several printed pieces in your Ensemble.
Copenhagen Fashion Week trend: belt it
If you are looking for simple ways to make a sweater or a simple dress, throw a belt over it. At Nynne, the model cinched in her velvet blouse with a belt with an eye-catching circular pendant. On the catwalk for Lovechild 1979, a thin belt was exposed above a plaid sweater vest and buttoned blouse. And House of Dagmar showed that all that a simple knitted dress really needs is an equally minimal belt.
