Fashion Week Season is upon us, and that means one thing: a new issue of DANSK! Entering our 16th year (and still recovering from our anniversary), we’re beginning to have some historical oversight of an industry which is notoriously fast-paced and amnestic. Heritage brands; fashion archiving practices; supermodel revivals life, right, and center; what to make of this sudden influx of nostalgia, that seems to have hit fashion harder like an old re-run of Breakfast at Tiffany’s? Our SS18, entitled Revisiting the Sublime, sets out to interrogate why in times of crisis, we tends to return to the most subliminal moments of fashion. Featuring exclusive interviews with “the last supermodel” Karolina Kurkova, Hermès creative director of menswear Véronique Nichanian, Parsons MFA director Shelley Fox, renowned photographer and fashion publisher Rankin, Danish avant-garde jewellery brand MONIES, NYC menswear archivist David Casavant, as well as the rising Berlin fashion brand Gmbh.Not to mention 200+ pages of the best, most subliminal fashion photography from our global network of collaborators
OUT WORLDWIDE NOW
NEW ISSUE OF DANSK – OUT VERY SOON
We know, we know! It’s been a summer of unashamed self-celebration: our child has become a moody, plump teenage girl, and we felt urged to make a party of it with long-time friends, family, and other collaborators. The latest issue of DANSK tracks 15 years of fashion through many of our peers – photographers, designers, magazine editors – who similarly emerged after the turn of the millennium. It also featured 45 of the most iconic pieces of fashion photography from our vast archive of material, tracing the sexy, the dangerous, and the avant-garde aesthetic DANSK has championed and spearheaded for a decade and a half. But we didn’t just keep this to the pages of a printed magazine – rather, we took to the streets, staging a magnificent exhibition of the photos in a central Copenhagen square to full display to our magical home town. Finally, a grand gala was thrown in collaboration with Pilgrim, Audi, Spies, Ecco og Boozt.com – who helped us invite our very best friends to the breath-taking halls of Ny Carlsberg Glyptoteket for an evening of speeches, food, fun, and games. Naturally, it was an emotional evening, with so much support continuing to go towards the DANSK project from our community, also moving forward. It only confirmed the importance of independent fashion publishing today, particularly in the Nordic region. At DANSK, we’re proud to show that where there’s a will, there’s a way, and to continue to deliver stellar fashion photography and journalism in the years to come. But for now, have a look at some of what went down during the DANSK Gala.
