CPHFW AW19 – Hofmann Copenhagen: Rocking The Print Game

Hofmann Copenhagen welcomed us with croissants and fresh esspresso, at the luxurious and classy chambers of the Paustian shop in central Copenhagen. The building had up untill recently been used as a bank, and is known for its’ impactful interior: marble floors, very high ceilings and huge columns. The crowd went silent for the appearance of two women on a small stage, who started to play a selection of slow-distorted rock and singing melancholic melodies, before shifting a sassy tune that got everyone ready for the show to come!

The AW19 collection presented us with comfortable, yet graceful suits, made out of silk and crépe. Heidi Hofmann played with the traditional idea of a suit, creating a relaxed and feminine fit for the modern women – the colors and prints were pretty amazing too, giving the sophistication an extra edge! It was so sexy, in such a beautiful and effortless way.

Silk dresses floated across the runway on colored clouds of fur, oversized silhouettes and different kinds of ruffles. We were dazzled by the playful styling of the huge furry hats, and the chunky crocs dragging a furry tail behind them. Who would have thought that crocs could be so cute and stylish? We were all in on the concept!

Like in her SS19 show, Heidi proved her excellence in mixing lively prints, while still maintaining a very tasteful and modest look. There were several dresses in the collection that contained as many as four different prints, with everyting sown together in asymetrical patchwork, where different layers and ruffles created a fascinating, silky landscape. This all sound a bit over the top for a single dress, we hear you cry? Trust us, that when it comes to Hofmann Copenhagen, that is certainly not the case! She manages to switch between more is more and less is more, creating unique pieces of clothing, that suit classic and more experimental styles just as well. This combination of colors, graphics and layers has become an iconic trademark of the Hofmann’s aesthetic, and we applaud in admiration.

At the end Heidi Hofmann herself stepped out gracefully, with her beautiful pregnant belly – A true power woman, in full bloom. It was a magical moment, and we were in awe by all the beauty. We loved how Hofmann Copenhagen mixed music with fashion, and combined with the amazing architecture of the location, she achieved magical synergies between the different art forms. It was a great pleasure for ears and eyes, and we are grateful for such a magnificent show – and kudos for freeing the nipple!
