We are proud to say that we have had a couple of our Copenhagen Fashion Week streetstyle shots featured in one of Denmark’s leading fashion and lifestyle magazines, Jolie. As a huge devotee of Danish style, this is a massive compliment. Yes, “Blink” is truly impacting the fashion world, well, worldwide!

Following on from that earlier post, we are having a Stine Riis afternoon to round off our first week of Copenhagen Fashion Week coverage. Here are some shots from Stine’s SS’13 show. She has further developed her refined, modern aesthetic taking the concepts from the AW’12 collection in a slightly softer, sportier direction. We really love Stine’s signature textile combinations and clever colour use.
Congratulations Stine and we look forward to seeing your label going from strength to strength.
We were really lucky to be invited to Copenhagen Fashion Week. Many thanks to Gregersen Communication and CFW. Also, additional huge thanks to Stine Riis. You may have read some of our previous posts about Stine. I had the pleasure of mentoring Stine just before she graduated. Her stunning final collection not only won a prize when it was shown at LCF‘s graduate show, but Stine went on to win the first ever H&M Design Award.
The H&M prize was a huge boost to Stine’s start as a designer presenting her own label, with key pieces from the winning collection launching in selected H&M stores exclusively in the UK during London Fashion Week on 17th September. The collection will then be available from 20th September in selected H&M stores in Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands. A selection of garments will also be available online.
Stine has been working with the H&M design team to develop chosen pieces from the collection, including a wool skirt and jacket with patent leather panels, a winter coat with strong shoulder details, a silk and patent leather blouse with a transparent back, and a knitted jumper with leather detailing.
“I can’t wait to see the collection at H&M! I want to see women wearing my designs and adapting them to suit their own style. Developing the collection with H&M has been a great learning experience, and their support has been so important to me. Key pieces from the collection are the jackets and the coat, as well as the skirt with leather panels” says Stine Riis, designer.
I cannot wait to be able to buy Stine’s collection. Well, done, and well deserved! We have some coverage from Stine’s SS’13 show at Copenhagen Fashion Week dropping a little later today too, so watch out.

And here we are then at the end of our Copenhagen Fashion Week coverage. We hope that we have inspired you and maybe introduced you to a few new names of designer’s to look our for in the season’s ahead. Here’s our final hit of streetstyle from this city which is filled with disproportionate amounts of very beautiful and very stylish people. We really love the naturally laid back style captured in many of these sots. The soft tonality teamed with softly unstructured shapes feels really appealing.
Thanks again to Asta for the great work. Can’t wait for London Fashion Week now, which will be upon us before we know it…
So from the shows themselves, we move on the the very stylish attendees of Copenhagen Fashion Week. Its always great to get streetstyle from Paris or Copenhagen, as well as London, to help reflect on the natural aesthetic differences that help express the true fashion heart of each city. Asta did a great job tracking down some really good looks. Thanks to her, and to all of you who stopped in your hectic Fashion Week schedules so she could take your picture.

We hope that you enjoyed yesterday’s post. Here’s some more inspirational show shots for you from Copenhagen Fashion Week, where the designers were showcasing their Spring Summer 2012 collections. These images are from the ‘CPH Visions + terminal II‘ showcase where the best contemporary womenswear brands focusing on Scandinavian design, feminine fashion and up-and-coming designers are shown as a group. The venue was a stunning building within Copenhagen’s historical ‘meatpacking’ district, Øksnehallen. Amongst those showing was Nuit Comme Oui, who we featured previously on the blog in one of our interviews. Just click here if you’d like to read it.
While most of us were working away as usual in sunny London, our lovely “Blink” family member, Asta, headed home to Copenhagen. The timing was perfect as her visit coincided with Copenhagen Fashion Week. After London (obviously!) and Paris, Copenhagen has to be our next favourite fashion inspiration location within Europe so we are delighted to be able to feature this on the blog and share it with you all.
Here is Asta’s summary of the biggest news from the event which was for Spring Summer 2012:
“The maxi-dress is quite predictably still a strong look and so is the platform shoe, but what I particularly noticed from this week is a lot of pastel colours in light see-through materials, mixed with bold accessories: big and shiny but simple, clean lines with lots of gold and silver. Accessories are either very small or they’re very big. The in-between thing doesn’t feel right at all. I also noticed quite a few sporty touches too, like trainers and sporty jersey fabrics but mixed with silk, knit and print. The round, binocular sunglasses are still a hit. There was a lot of metallic gold fabric and a strong presence snakeskin effects- all with an underlying feeling of the 90’s. I also spotted lots of bright colored, tie-die style prints, and a lot of ‘mullet’ dresses that had a short front but a long back, just as we’ve been seeing coming through in London this Summer.”
Here’s the first hit of shows coverage for you, featuring Benedikte Utzon‘s SS’12 collection, and there will be more tomorrow- followed by some great streetstyle shots towards the end of the week.
Copenhagen Fashion Week is no longer just called Copenhagen Fashion Week. With tourists and Copenhageners invited to join in by attending ‘The Worlds Greatest Catwalk’ event and other shows embracing a more open and public friendly stance, it is now also known as the Copenhagen Fashion Festival.
On August 14th, Danish underground DJ, Djuna Barnes delivered colorful and upbeat music whilst more than 200 models, celebrities, babies and ballet dancers began the 1.6 km long walk along the hot pink catwalk, creating a new world record! Starting at Rådhuspladsen down Copenhagen’s biggest shopping street ‘Strøget’ and ending in Kgs. Nytorv, this event showcased Danish and Scandinavian SS’11 collections in a really celebratory way. Forever supermodel and great Dane, Helena Christensen was the hostess for this event and several shops in Central Copenhagen donated 1% of the days income to Chernobyl Children’s project International.
