Yesterday’s delights x CFW
Charlotte Eskildsen is taking Designers Remix back to its roots where it all started 17 years ago, remaking clothing from already produced items with a sustainable mindset. 60 % of the SS19 collection shown yesterday at “The Crystal”, Nykredit Bank in central Copenhagen has been sustainably produced.
Innovation and consciously chosen materials included textiles from recycled plastic bottles, reused cotton, certified viscose and pure silk. The SS19 collection offers wonderful white creations with lace and embroideries, clean lines and flattering silhouettes.
Athletic wear going into everyday accessible pieces. Laerke Andersen truly added a new dimension to her brand for this collection. Silky jersey came in just-over-the-knee dresses, sand-colored trenchcoats and jackets tailored to hug the body and ruching on some of the tops, skirts and dresses, making the collection a little more feminine in contrast to the more clean streetwear and masculine approach. And don’t forget the amazing sneakers – a successful collaboration between Laerke Andersen and ARKK Copenhagen!
”Referential transparency” the title of the SS19 collection. The Heliot-brothers fashion-forward creations impressed once more and especially since they launched their first women’s wear collection. With inspiration from the Copenhagen underground and Japanese-manufactured hardware, they offered semi-transparent fabrics combined with heat-sensitive thermos and the color palette evolved around black, white and grey. You could also spot accessories such as handbags and waste bags, showing that Heliot Emil provides much more than just clothing.
The collection for sure showed a mix of badass and futuristic streetwear with a hint of sex appeal.
