Saks Potts got to show their first runway show ever at the main stage of Copenhagen Fashion Week, the City Hall. As at all shows they had changed the venue to their own unique setting, with a green carpet, like a field of green grass in the summer, but with mirror pillars placed here and there on the runway.
There was much anticipation in the air when the music started and the looks that entered the runway didn’t let any Saks Potts fans down. Brightly colored furs in red, green and yellow were the eye-catchers of the show but there were also other pieces that shined in their simplicity compared to the furry coats. The jumpsuit and the dress with a deep V-neck and a dotted set in a crinkled fabric were definite favorites in addition to all the beautiful furs. There were also pieces brightly colored in a red, black and white print.
If you think fur is too hot for spring and summer – think again! The Nordic countries have proven that a furry piece in the summer is no impossibility at all. The imagination of Saks Potts also makes the pieces more summer compatible in the forms of a furry crop top and coats with only fur in the details. The shoes the models wore were slip-on sandals with different colored fur on top, perfect for chilly summer nights.
Once a model had entered the runway she never left, but positioned herself somewhere along the runway, standing next to a mirror or sitting on a block on the runway. When the last model had walked the runway and found her place there were people rushing out from behind the stage to photograph them and the audience immediately followed their lead. Soon the runway was full of amateur paparazzis with iPhones, trying to catch their favorite details like the bright green eyeshadows or the furry sandals they just have to get for next spring.
