Silas Adler has through his work at hyped streetwear label Soulland established himself as one of the most important voices for Scandinavian design – but deep down, he’s a skaterboy.
The AW 16 issue of DANSK takes measure of the immense state of upheaval in today’s fashion world. From the design schools to the runways, from the Internet to Paris’ couture ateliers – everywhere, yesterday’s rules and customs are replaced with an overwhelming sense of freedom and anarchy. How is fashion keeping it together? DANSK speaks to some of the industry’s leading figures about daring to transgress and innovate: Loewe’s Jonathan Anderson on the brand’s total reboot, Lanvin’s Lucas Ossendrijver on inventing its menswear, and notorious model agent Eva Gödel on changing the face of fashion. We speak to the mother of fashion theory Elizabeth Wilson – and Insta-artist BESSNYC4 on the radical potential of social media. And of course, lot’s of the best most transgressive fashion of the season. One thing’s for sure: nothing will ever be the same.

Danish designer and past DANSK Design Talent Magasinprisen nominee Anne Sofie Madsen has been a favorite among Parisian fashion-insiders for at least a few seasons – securing herself a permanent spot in the official show schedule and increasingly celebrated for her conceptual and highly abstracted designs that touch on couture traditions as much as contemporary youth culture.

The rumors of Raf Simons’ appointment as creative director at Calvin Klein have been lingering in the fashion world’s collective air circulation system since this winter like a bad cold or the smell of delicious Christmas bakery.
It’s crazy to think that it’s already been 30 years since Renzo Rosso, a young farmer’s son, convinced an Italian low-price jeans company to set up a premium line, taking it’s name after the alternative fuel type DIESEL during the mid-seventies OPEC oil crisis.
