CPHFW – Han Kjøbenhavn AW16

For A/W 2016 Danish Duo Han Kjøbenhavn took us right into the heart of Christiana to present their take on the teddy bears picnic. The brand that started their venture into fashion with eyewear back in 2008 has always crafted their own way, being more than comfortable breaking the fashion rules while keeping elements of Danish heritage. On this note it was only fitting for a label that has risen to be one of the most popular shows during Copenhagen Fashion Week to show in the capitals very own liberal haven. The guys behind the label have always delivered with their set and The Teddy Legion certainly came correct on that front as well with a full crowd packed into old warehouse, some seated, some standing on ledges, concrete blocks or whatever was available to catch what was on offer for Autumn/Winter 2016.

The trends were all out on show as Han Kjøbenhavn presented longline puffer and fur jackets in outdoor inspired arctic whites and greys along with the earthy tones that dominated the fur elements of the collection. Next season continues with sleek sportswear inspired looks with references to football and cycling both which are integral parts of the danish culture as the collection moved from athletic inspired pieces to late 80’s throwback acid washed denim that is something worth monitoring for next season. The cropped trousers look is still in full swing and paired with acid denim and crisp white sneakers is a nostalgic look that makes us question why acid wash dropped out of the cool circles in the first place.

The colour palette presented at Han Kjøbenhavn is something that always impresses and their ability to blend in some out of the norm colours with the more standard is something that i have come to appreciate. For this season it was the Murasaki Purple that came through strong in the collection as a less than subtle statement in a sea of Navy, White, Black, Grey and Deep Greens.
