The second day of Copenhagen Fashion Week SS17 started with one of Denmark’s sweethearts: Mark Kenly Domino Tan. Having cut his teeth at Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen and Sonia Rykiel, he returned to Copenhagen and established his namesake label in 2012 that’s a mix of midcentury silhouettes and structured tailoring.
For Mark Kenly Domino Tan SS17 the designer took his preference for that midcentury silhouette and added a 1980s twist – something we expect to see a lot of next spring/summer. Feminine gowns with large, full skirts were worn with hoop earrings, pony tails and quiffs, while the pinstripe shirt dresses worn with white knee-high boots had more than a whiff of Dallas about it. Of course, it was all managed to be done in that effortless Scandinavian manner, rather than a fancy dress throwback.
As for the colour palette, pastels reigned at Mark Kenly Domino Tan. Clothing ranged from off-white to soft blues and dusty pinks, with embellished heeled mules to match.
