Copenhagen Fashion Week Spring 2014 Runway Review

Veronica B Vallenes

Day 3 of Copenhagen Fashion Week started with Veronica B Vallenes and this collection cemented her place in the Danish fashion scene. Her usual flowy fabrics, simple lines, modernistic kimonos and minimalistic approach were still prevalent but Vallenes turned it up another notch for this collection with exquisite fabrics and new sensual details such as open back dresses, body hugging silhouettes and the one item that caught everyone’s attention was a beautiful draped dress in a cream crepe fabric.

Barbara I Gongini

Barbara I Gongini has became an important element of Copenhagen Fashion Week and this time the designers delved into an even darker and more melodramatic universe, with the notion that deconstruction inevitably leads to composure. Inspiration had been drawn from the way that explorers, wearing nothing but their essentials, flock on the windy and weather-beaten plains and then continue on their never-ending march into the horizon. The show put emphasis on the fact that I Gonginis garments have infinite possibilities and allow for experimentation. A model strode out on the catwalk and was dressed in layer after layer by other models and that showed just how versatile the avant garde brand is. SS14 contained an array of deconstructed pieces, zipper details, assyteric shapes, aging patina, transulent gauze and the color palette went in blacks, white and differents shades of grey. As usual, the heritage of the designer (Faroe island) came to life in the many fishnet like details and garments.
