From this year’s theme review to the best-dressed attendees, here’s all you need to know about the world’s most ravishing event renowned in the global fashion calendar.
Forget about this week’s world premiere of Game of Thrones; this week, all streaming tips should be aimed towards Amazon Prime and their new mysterious movie, Guava Island – a love story between our two favorite musicians at the moment, Rihanna and Donald Glover.
The prestigious and historical French jewellery maison Cartier has announced its first store opening on Copenhagen soil. The opening will mark the second Scandinavian boutique, since the opening of a boutique in Stockholm, Sweden, last year. According to Cartier, Copenhagen is the “perfect city” for such an opening with its merge between history, tradition and courage to keep moving forward, values that have kept the French jewellery maison above relevant for buyers in over 170 years. The boutique will be located on the famous pedestrian street Strøget, and will comprise more than 200m2 of French exclusivities exhibited in a blend of Parisian elegance and Danish hygge. This will be implemented via wooden materials, Danish furniture and natural colors. The arrangement between Danish modesty and Parisian elegance is expected to be one of its kind and ready for clients at the end of the year.

We love the new British Vogue. With stylist Edward Enninful behind the wheel, the publication has, overnight, developed a new relevance in the mainstream fashion space, abundant with multiculturalism, young talent, and self-deprecating humor. Just look at this video of Kate Moss cooking a Sunday Roast for her close pals – what more to ask for in life, really?
While we’re waiting for the last weekend in May, aka the Superbowl of Fashion, aka the Met Ball, fashion enthusiasts as well as ball-attending celebrities (and their stylists) might benefit from some research. This year’s theme – camp – is both a historically ambiguous and quite academic concept – and while we’re very amused by the idea of the Kardashians trying to decipher Susan Sontag’s classic 1964 essay Notes on Camp, we also want to be fair and offer some serious guidance. Thankfully, the Metropolitan Museum of Art just released their first preview of their summer exhibition. Click below for more.
For those who still doubt the power of social media in the fashion world, the latest chapter of the Gucci/racism row should put in a nail in the coffin. More so than ever, luxury fashion brands exist at the mercy of public internet approval, a forum where even a single voice in Harlem could start a revolution. This is indeed the case with the case of the king of Black Fashion, Dapper Dan.
With Paris Fashion Week just coming to a close, we’re still digesting all the wonderful things we were lucky to see this week. A definite highlight, and certainly the most extravagant, was certainly by the American Mr. Hilfiger, who invited over 1300 of his best friends to the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées for a sparkled celebration of America, in collaboration with his newest brand ambassador, Zendaya. Let’s recount it one step at a time to make sure we’re not forgetting anything.
Yesterday, news broke of the death of Karl Lagerfeld, the creative director of Chanel as well as Fendi, and the unrivaled king of contemporary fashion. Lagerfeld’s long-spanning reign over Western luxury fashion is unparalleled by any other talent working today, and his legacy will be hard to match by any of his peers (Chanel, however, have against all speculation announced his right hand, Virginie Viard, as his predecessor). While Lagerfeld’s closest relatives and friends prepare for his funeral, the fashion world mourns his passing with a stream of obituaries and in memoriams – including Anna Wintour, Hamish Bowles, i-D, Purple, and AnOther. At DANSK, we won’t re-trace the words of so many others, so to remember our dearest Karl, we look back at some of the earliest moments of his career(s) in pictures. More below.
