Copenhagen Fashion Week: Lovechild 1979 SS17

lovechild 1979

The rose garden of Copenhagen’s historic Glypototeket set the scene for Lovechild 1979 SS17; a fitting backdrop to the luxurious elegant pieces that made up the collection. This was one that had a feminine effortless and ease; a theme that cropped up again and again at Copenhagen Fashion Week this season.

Inspired by the style of the 1950s Italian Riviera, the collections was made up loose, elegant dresses with accentuated waistlines, cropped wide legged trousers, shirts and chiffon scarves worn around the neck – all worn with rope sandals. The pyjama suit made another appearance at Lovechild 1979, with short and long sleeve options covered in the brand’s seasonal heart print, while dresses came loose, sheer, and worn over trousers.

The colour palette referenced that of watercolours, offering a pared-back version of the spring-friendly pastel – a more subtle, elegant take on those sweet shades. The main takeaway of this collection though, was one of ease, unspoken elegance and a modern take on femininity.
