The Han Kjøbenhavn show is always at the top of my list when Copenhagen Fashion Week rolls around. They always find a way to bring a bit of art, culture and fashion to create an overall atmosphere that captures the audiences imagination. To put it simply they have become very good at setting the mood. For Spring/Summer 2016 the dynamic duo of Jannik Wikkelsø Davidsen and Tim Faith took us to a trailer park for “Bearhead Kingdom” that was complete with caravans and a posse of topless and tatted models posted up with Wolves as A$AP Rocky played loudly in the background.
90’s inspired collections have seen a resurgence and the likes of Adidas Superstars and relaxed fitting trousers are back in a big way. The 90’s was also very heavy on sportswear and the guys at Han Kjøbenhavn nailed it with their street ready sport-lux garments. The colour palette ranged from the typical monochrome black/white looks through to earthy tones of green, brown and blue. If there was one consistency throughout it would be the use of pastel pink which featured as a splattered print on shirts, blazers, bandanas and trousers. In something that sounds terrible in theory pink on pink pinstripe was worth the risk and worked well on a short sleeve shirt and as the arms of a patchwork bomber. The use of velour also surfaced a couple of times with a multicoloured sweatshirt and a longline turtleneck in navy that was very on point. However being a 90’s kid myself it was the snap pants that sold the show for me, I was a always big fan growing up and paired with the street ready looks cemented them as something to bring back into use.
The collection was just experimental enough to appeal to the risk takers while keeping old favourites such as the double zipped bomber and monochrome palette to keep the minamalist fans happy. View the highlights below and view our review from last season here.
