Copenhagen Fashion Week Diary: Day 2

August 09, 2013 BY WATM

Andree Hoxfeldt, our Copenhagen Fashion Week correspondent is right in the middle of it all. He's got the hook up and is letting us into his fashion-week world. Here's the first installment of his Copenhagen Fashion Week Diary.

People seem to be talking about two things this week: The incredibly warm and humid weather and, of course, fashion.

Today, two of my most anticipated shows took place Anne Sofie Madsen and Wood Wood.

Anne Sofie Madsen graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2009. She opened Copenhagen Fashion Week in 2011 and left everybody flabbergasted with a collection that didnt look like anything we had ever seen before in Danish fashion. Anne is a super talented designer who really understands how to create avant-garde clothing with a street vibe. This season she didnt cease to amaze me her design and talent keep developing and her show made it clear that Danish fashion really has something quite spectacular to offer. The collection was kept in a white, black and brown color palette, complemented by large silver neck- and arm cuffs from one-to-watch jewelry designer Trine Tuxen.

Wood Wood staged a spectacular show later that day in Glyptoteket a museum of ancient artifacts with centuries-old sculptures and a beautiful winter garden. For sure one of my favorite spots in Copenhagen. If anyone understands what being a young and fresh Copenhagener is all about, it must be the people behind Wood Wood. For more than ten years the Danish brand has provided über cool street wear for the masses. This collection was one of the best Ive ever seen from them. Especially the last two looks: Purple patterned neoprene track suits for him and her. Good job Wood Wood!

Last but not least I ended up my night DJing at the Soulland party. This season Soulland had decided to do something different expected. Instead of a traditional fashion show they presented their new collection with a flawless three-minute film, which can be streamed online for everyone to watch.
