Here at the DANSK office we are always on the lookout for that special something that can impress us, which at times can seem difficult, but we must say that this season we have fallen in love with Valentino all over again.
The women are taking cues from the men this season. We are currently seeing a major menswear trend for women with tailored, suits, blazers and brogues but still with a feminine and chic twist.

Cerruti 1881′s designer Aldo Maria Camillo has only been Artistic Director since April last year, but he has already made a huge impression on us with his debuting AW13 collection.
I simply love the artsy campaign that Kris Van Assche has created for his FW13 collection.
Since the summer and its bright colours is right around the corner, it seems quite suiting that the white sunglasses have come back in style. Above you see a quite sophisticated Kriss van Assche model designed in colaboration with Linda Farrow. Definitely one of the more appealing pair of white sunglasses spotted on the runways this season.

If you are going for stripes next season, go for Stella! Stella McCartney showed her FW13 collection Monday during Paris Fashion Week and the collection looked amazing. The pinstriped, masculine and asymmetrical part of the collection reminded me of how my granddad looked when he went to work, when I was a child. Next season I’m definitely going for the granddad look!

Judged by the the latest SS13 and AW13 collections for both men and women, the camouflage tendency is definitely making a come-back. Brands like Diesel (shown above), Christopher Kane and Dries Van Noten have already embraced the returning trend, and I dare say that this is not all we’ve seen of the military trend for now. Wait and see!

Lately I have been bored by the governing street-style-fashion in vogue – worn sneakers, worn with worn jeans and college jackets, most preferably with leather slings. What I’m lusting for is being urged to pull of sophistication rather than a full-grown beard. Finally, I’m allowed – and even in a Scandinavian, more calm and classy way.
I have two words, one a numeral and one a pronoun – thanks Borsalino – I cannot wait till summer. Toasting in champagne, wearing my new Borsalino paper hat from ACNE – oh, summer is always in fashion.
Once again, Miuccia Prada nails it. This time it isn’t as ground breaking, as some of the recent collections have been, but that’s really not a critique. Just like Marc Jacobs showed something less crazypants, both of the collections seem recognizable, yet really modern and cool. We’re in love. And the show featured two of our favourites – Danish rising star Juliane Grüner and Dutch beauty Daphne Groeneveld. Both girls you can find in our new issue that features Daphne on the cover.
