Copenhagen Fashion Week – Wood Wood AW 2014

One of the most grand fashion shows of Copenhagen Fashion Week is Wood Wood. The Danish fashion brand is well-known worldwide for their sporty-fashion approach. For the Autumn/Winter 2014 collection, the road took us to an enormous open space for wall climbing. In contrary to this modernistic sport, the fashion show evoked us way back into the old times. More precisely, the main inspiration of the designers of Wood Wood, was the 1961 movie entitled “The Guns of Navarone” from the era of the American-British war. The outfits presented follow the classical dress code of that specific period, as well as the colour and style of the uniforms. The references are very strong and the capturing of this historical time is also represented through the scarves worn on the head. This inspiration is the foundation of the collection and the heroes spirit is captured in it.

The sporty-fashion approach is achieved through the perfect harmony between style and function, which is Wood Wood’s signature. This approach is further extended through the translation of the inspiration, which is the climbing wall sport. The climbing robe is present in handbags and the form of belts. The fabric choices include the classical winter textiles, like nylon, wool, bonded blends and premium jerseys. While the colour palette is impressive through the hint of fluorescent explosions from time to time. The basic colours include dark navy, shades of burgundy and army green.
