Our team headed off once again for our favourite week on the fashion industry calendar, Copenhagen Fashion Week. An amazing week full of buzz-worthy designs, iconic faces and noteworthy locations, this year’s Copenhagen Fashion Week AW24 shows were a hit!
We caught up with our Coggles community for a sip and paint session with @sheepaints and captured all the joy-inducing Scandi street-style inspiration to carry us through to the next Autumn. With a fresh mindset of style inspiration, we’ve rounded up the shows we attended and what we exactly thought about the collections.
From their recent show, Love Child taught us the power of masculine silhouettes and classic tailoring. Their latest AW24 collection was inspired by Iqbal’s AI-generated world with influences of the minimalistic aesthetic claimed by New York in the ‘90s.
Amongst the collection, heavy knits such as the likes of mohair, bouclé weave, and herringbone, as well as key earthy tones with indigo denim and shades of “office blue” all took centre stage for the show.
Inspired by love letters and taking the lead from the modern romance trend, Skall Studio’s AW24 show paid tribute to their 10th anniversary this year. With the love letter theme, models carried notebooks and papers, as if travelling from the cafe to the speakeasy.
We noted how this collection showed impactful double denim co-ordinate sets, exaggerated sleeves and elevated crochet pieces fashioned from organic Italian cotton and sweet linen blouses and dresses.
“Writing letters is closely related to paying attention to what you are doing, to be present in the moment, which we think is a great quality these days.”
Located at the iconic Opera House venue, whilst also being established in Copenhagen by the talented Stephanie Gundelach and Awa Malina Stelter, the show was an unmissable event. OpéraSPORT effortlessly executed blending elegance with sporty elements, fitting with the sports core trend for this year. Whilst the key colours of the collection included neutral tones with punchy hues of burgundy and orange.
In their AW24 collection, OpéraSPORT collection uses recycled and organic materials only due to their brand mission of trying to minimise global CO2 emissions through responsible production.
Baum und Pferdgarten
Colourful, sophisticated and meaningful – all words to describe the Baum und Pferdgarten AW24 collection for this year’s Copenhagen Fashion Week. This was such a special show, titled “Love und Friendship Since 1999”, as it marked the label’s 25th anniversary.
Next season, we can expect to see from Baum under Pferdgarten’s collection: colourful hues and unexpected playful contrasts with fabrics and memorable prints.
Paying homage to their new homes in the Nordics and their new experiences in Copenhagen, creative directors Brooke Taylor and Nana Aganovic used both pivotal memories to inspire the Wood Wood AW24 collection.
Throughout the show, we witnessed key themes such as a ‘70s feeling caused by the chosen colour palette, with warm browns and other muted tones, as well as striking cobalt blue, following this year’s spotted bright blue colour trend.
“Being new to Wood Wood and being new to Copenhagen, the biggest inspiration was obviously going to be our impressions of the city and, more precisely, our impressions of the 20-year archive of the brand.”
Mfpen truly put on a show, in fact, an intimate punk concert to be exact. For their AW24 presentation, founder and creative director, Sigurd Bank wanted to provide his guests with an explosive yet intimate experience like the vibe found at punk and hardcore concerts.
This year’s AW24 showcase was described by Bank, as “moody”. These characteristics were found in the slouchy suits and oversized silhouettes, all made with 100% recycling materials, lending to the tailoring trend seen this year.
Rotate Birger Christensen
A Copenhagen-based brand, Rotate’s AW24 show was inspired by the most iconic females in the ‘50s such as Marilyn Monroe. Presented by co-creative directors, Thora Valdimars and Jeanette Madsen, the pair wanted to create a collection for an “It Girl”.
Refined romance was a key trend throughout the collection, with the setting of a crimson catwalk lit by a grandiose chandelier, providing a “dark paradise” feeling. From the ‘50s characteristics such as nipped waists to the partywear elements of sparkles, ultra-feminine silhouettes and florals.
