Launch: Tonsure SS19

All roads lead to Rome, an old saying goes: even in fashion. While the present-day Italian capital tends to be overshadowed by its more sartorially inclined sisters in the North – Milan and Florence – the Roman ways are ever-present in fashion, from sandals and draped whites to antiquity itself. And this spring, our favorite Danish menswear brand Tonsure plays with the marble-covered tropes of Ancient Rome, recouping the society’s love for personal decoration and fashionable etiquette.

DANSK Loves Sunflower

The fashion industry is changing these years, and is doing so fast. In the midst of it, new Danish menswear brand Sunflower is slowly evolving itself to offer a concrete counterexample to an industry driven by newness, hype, and conspicuous consumption.

Review: Ganni AW19

Since Thursday night where Ganni wrapped up three days of fashion shows at Copenhagen Fashion Week, the brand has become subject to international attention. This time not due to general “Ganni Girl” hype, but because the AW19 show “Life on Earth” was called out as “tone-deaf” after a rather problematic set design. Before and during the show, held in a HDR film studio, photos from “Earth” were displayed on enormous screens around the runway, with “Earth” meaning mostly pictures from the Global South. The reportage work by photojournalist Amy Vitale was, we later learned from creative director Ditte Reffstrup’s apology, meant to “portray the diversity and connectivity we share on this planet.” Unfortunately, using images of children and women from countries that suffer from western fashion fetish as exotic background to a Scandi show was a huge disconnect.

Review: Stand Studio AW19

On the third day of Copenhagen Fashion Week, Swedish Stand Studio showcased their AW19 collection under the roof of Nikolaj Kunsthal, Copenhagen’s third oldest church. The spacious room and the high white ceilings formed the perfect frame for a fashion show. However, it was in this sanctuary setting we came to realize that we’ve lost our lust for block colour faux fur stolas and leather—snake skin—teddy fabric combinations mix and match.
