CPHFW SS20 – Søren Le Schmidt: Bold, Pink and On Fleek

Although Søren Le Schmidt’s was the last show of day 1 at Copenhagen Fashion Week, it seemed like everyone was there, and had been waiting all day in excitement. The show was held in the large and open architectural space of the Paustian furniture store, with the audience seated across three different floors; a setting that was structure and fitting for the tailored nature of the brand.

The show took us on a journey where the garments went from neon pink to blended blue, with pit stops at the familiar black and white in between. Beautifully tailored and well-fitted pieces marched through the runway including (what will definitely be) your favorite cocktail dress and go-to suit, but with a twist! Classic garments contained details that elevated them from plain classy to edgy – colorblending blue and white fabrics, adding a flair to silhouettes, and block color dressing in different shades of pink for men and women. Experimenting with pink and blue across the genders gave us the feeling that gender constructs were being broken down; men should be free to wear pink, just like women are free to wear blue, without any definition. A simple, but effective idea, that we applauded!

The detailing was elaborate and elegant, with layers of fabric structured like lava over the models’ shoulders on dresses, blouses and gowns. Bulging shoulders were also a key feature this season, as were low cut v-necks and bare backs. The collection told a beautiful story through its’ details and use of colors, making it a very cohesive and a pleasant visual treat. Everything was right on fleek; the fit, the tailoring, the color mixing and the detailing!
