Copenhagen has become a mecca for worldwide accolade surrounding fashion. As an American, the Scandinavian silhouette is viewed as edgy, liberating and bold. The Danish styles are fresh and innovative with attention to detail and elongation of the frame. This, coupled with simplicity and elegance, makes me go bananas for everything surrounding Danish fashion.
But the thing I like most about Copenhagen style is the non-fuss. There is such a pleasing originality when people watching, a passion of mine that I practice regularly. I have picked up so many ideas for designing clothing by just watching people on the street. If you are seeking a special place for trendspotting, head to Blågårdsgade. It is so reminiscent of the East Village. While there, you must check out Harbo Bar and drink the dark and stormy (ginger beer and rum)…so good!
Fashion week for me was spent working in the office at Mads Nørgaard. We did take a little time off to party though! The staff threw an amazing party at a really dope barber shop on Saturday night and yours truly played some fresh music for family and friends of Mads. Here are some pics from the event spent with amazing friends and co-workers. Enjoy! And remember, “Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months,” Oscar Wilde. So true, but lets change that. I’m simply into wearing the same thing for like three days in a row…how Kurt Cobain of me.
