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!

“Blink” Brands: Designers Remix, Copenhagen Fashion Week

Monday, September 3rd, 2012

One of the shows that we really enjoyed at CFW was Designers Remix. I discovered this brand when I first visited Copenhagen, and fell in love with its take on modern femininity, colour and accessible, directional design. Designers Remix was founded in 2002 by Charlotte Eskildsen with her partner and CEO, Niels Eskildsen. Since then, they have successfully developed the company into a global brand available in over 500 stores all across Europe, Russia, Asia and the Middle East. In 2012 Designers Remix was nominated and won the prestigious category “brand of the year” at Danish Fashion Award.

The SS’13 show was a cool mix of eye popping brights and cool monochrome statements, clean lines and a graphic sensibility. We really love the tailoring with a sharpness eased up with a softly sporty feeling. Those high/ low hem dresses make a fantastic impact too.

“Blink” Colour: SS’13, Copenhagen Fashion Week

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

It’s been some time since we posted a colour palette. Sorry about that oversight. We’ve just had so many other exciting things to share with you. Well, we are back on the colour case after a little while analyzing what we were inspired by at Copenhagen Fashion Week for Spring Summer 2013. Copenhagen provides a great early look at new season trends, with a very commercial outlook. It also served to get our appetites whetted for London. I am now officially getting excited about LFW. Bring it on!

Right, back to the key colour that we spotted at CFW. There was a lot of rusty, russet, sepia, saffron tinted neutrals, some of which bled out to softened nude tonal shades. This core palette was uplifted by some really punchy limey greens and acidic yellow tones, showing that last season’s neons still have a place, but as a highlight, updating a far softer, neutral collection of colours.

To reflect this gorgeous rail of Custommade‘s SS’13 collection we have used pearl (pantone 17-2601 TPX), caramel (16-1317 TPX), freckle (17-1424 TPX), peach fuzz (16-1529 TPX), ripe apricot (14-1318 TPX), buff (12-0704 TPX), almost pink (13-3801 TPX), sharp lemon (13-0648 TPX) and pollen (12-0721 TPX).

“Blink” Designers: Stine Goya, Copenhagen Fashion Week

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

Another brand we fell in love with at CFW is Stine Goya. This Copenhagen based, Danish designer launched her own label collection of womenswear after graduating with a degree in fashion and print from Central St Martins in 2005. The collection of soft and feminine yet contemporary styles is now sold in over 90 leading stores globally.

We really like the aesthetic of this label, and the SS’13 collection is a particular treat featuring super soft pastels, fluid silhouettes in silky base cloths, metallic touches and a really gorgeous print featuring big haired ladies that feels quite Art Nouveau inspired. The accessories presented with the collection are super desirable too. We particularly love the metal tipped shoes and the envelope style clutch bags.

“Blink” Accessories: Vibe Harslof, Copenhagen Fashion Week

Tuesday, August 21st, 2012

It is always exciting to discover new designers, labels and collections. Copenhagen Fashion Week was fantastic for that. The ‘Gallery’ show was a treasure trove of brands that we already knew and loved, as well as lots of great new discoveries.

One of the labels we spotted first was Vibe Harslof. This jewellery designer was showing alongside Wackerhaus, a really rather gorgeous womenswear label. Vibe was wearing one of the Wackerhaus new season dresses, which worked really well with her own jewellery collection’s aesthetic. The simplistic and sculptural sterling silver and gold plated pieces feature chunkier links set against super fine chains and wire sections. We really particularly loved the really innovative earrings/ earcuffs and the three finger rings.

“Blink” New Designers: Stine Riis, SS’13 at CFW

Friday, August 17th, 2012

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.

“Blink” New Designers: Stine Riis with H&M

Friday, August 17th, 2012

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.

Enjoy! Lucy
