Rounding up our favorite shows from Copenhagen Fashion Week, we take a closer look at the new collection of Norwegian brand Holzweiler.The Holzweiler S/S ‘18 show was about to start as our beers started to get warmer. The brand, founded by the siblings duo; Susanne and Andreas Holzeweiler, marked their success by launching their pristine scarf collection in 2012. But there was more to the new collection that caught our eyes: Gracing the runway to entertain us was Henrik Holm posing for a selfie or two with eager fans sporting the latest runway looks. Holm is one of the supporting casts of SKAM, the latest TV craze that took the fashion world by storm, including Copenhagen. His attendance at Holzweiler was rather fitting: Holm represents Norway’s rise in the region’s popular culture while Holzweiler’s increasing influence in the industry has brought Oslo to rival both Stockholm and Copenhagen as the alternative fashion capital – Double Trouble!
The Ready-to-Wear line caters to any “Holzweiler” born to be a rebel: The minimalistic styling is rather playful as plaids and geometric prints dominate the jackets and coats alike. Hence why the accessories truly embrace the egalitarian approach in welcoming the sun: Highstreet sandals, paired with exquisite leather shoulder bags and belts bearing: “LOVE ME NOT.” Not to be miss are of course the bright signature fine scarves and swimwears that makes this brand the talks of town from the very first place! The disarray of aesthetic cohesion demonstrates that design harmony is also nurtured through bits and pieces from all walks of lives. Holzweiler is here to stay as their vision celebrates collaboration like no other; from Munch-inspired scarf to Sikh turban, Scandinavia’s holy design trinity of Denmark, Norway, and Sweden is finally complete.
