Baum und Pferdgarten
Baum und Pferdgarten returned to their roots and showed at the absolutely amazing location, The National Gallery with the gallery garden as the most stunning backdrop. The collection consisted of feminine shapes and lace combined with sporty influences such as stripe details on trousers, drawstrings and quilted jerseys with quirky accents such as leopard prints, the quintessential cocoon shapes and contrasting colors. Baum und Pferdgarten is a true go-to-brand for a simple feminine and classic style with quirky details.
Bruuns Bazaar summer show Baubotanic was as usual held in the brand's own courtyard in the middle of Copenhagen. An inherently minimalistic and contemporary brand with clean lines, neat styling and lack of details, and the SS14 collection was no exception, but the introduction of floral patterns, sports materials such as jersey and embroidery moved the brand in a new direction while remaining true to its identity. Inspiration came from artists and architects working with botanical motives and materials such as Ferdinand Ludwig’s Baubotanic Tower and the contradiction between using nature, but sculpting and manipulating it into minimalistic shapes, was apparent in the entire collection. The styles that stood out were a floral embroidered sweater, anything taffeta, a pink tailored glittery dress and a blue dropwaist jumpsuit.
Designers Remix ended the second day at the newly opened aquarium “Den Blå Planet” and the concept was apparent in everything from the choice of music (the soundtrack from the movie The Big Blue) to the wet-look finish of the fabrics. The silhouettes were more tailored and body focused than usual and there were several asymmetric styles in contrasting colors or materials.
