CPHFW – HENRIKSILVIUS AW16

The final day had us excited as we headed into city hall to check out HENRIKSILVIUS. After an impressive show for Autumn/Winter 2015, his third appearance at Copenhagen Fashion Week delivered a masculine collection with rich references to ancient history.

This seasons effort opted to mostly ditch the greys that worked so well last time and instead jumped into bright red, camel and black along with a darker charcoal for a foolproof winter colour way. From presenting just three collections Silvius has already implemented his vision of redefining masculinity and this seasons cropped jackets and sheer see through shirts showed a confidence and celebration of the male figure as square chested and jawed models owned the runway complete with classic Roman locks. Reaching back to the Caracalla empire for inspiration the collection played with opposing textures as thick outerwear and long coats, simple and clean in construction, created an appealing contrast with the see-through and skin hugging sequin laden garments.

A trend throughout the season was the loose straight fit trouser which Silvius turned into an exceptional two piece camel ensemble complete with box cut biker jacker and a striking red number to complete what was a great start to our final day in Copenhagen.
