The first of the spring/summer shows are underway in the Danish capital, and we’re taking a look at the Scandi labels we’re most excited to see at Copenhagen Fashion Week SS20. Discover the five labels worth watching below.
With a passion for playful prints, vibrant colours and bold separates, Stine Goya doesn’t exude the stereotypical minimalist aesthetic that Danish style is regularly branded with. Inspired by the palette of the Copenhagen cityscape, Stine Goya is a colourful alternative and a vibrant injection to the Scandinavian fashion scene.
We highlighted Cecilie Bahnsen as the new Scandi label you need to know about earlier this year, so it should come as no surprise to see it listed here. The up and coming Danish brand first debuted at CPFW in February 2017 and has swiftly become one of the most anticipated shows in the capital over the course of five, soon to be six, seasons.
Having previously worked at Danish institutions By Malene Birger and DAY Birger et Mikkelsen, as well as Chloé, Heidi Hofmann’s eponymous label brings together the distinct styles of two contrasting cities to create a line that is cool, refined and effortless.
ROTATE Birger Christensen
You may not yet know this name but you will recognise the two faces behind Copenhagen’s hottest new label. Launched in 2018, ROTATE Birger Christensen was founded in partnership with Danish stylists and influencers, Jeanette Madsen and Thora Valdimars. After debuting at Copenhagen Fashion Week in August last year, the duo established the label as a go-to for fun, glamorous party dresses with bold silhouettes and vibrant colours.
This list wouldn’t be complete without mentioning Ganni. Having risen to stratospheric fame in recent seasons, the brand is arguably one of Denmark’s biggest success stories, helping to put Copenhagen Fashion Week on the map with its cult designs and contrasting playful aesthetic.
