You Need These Five Danish Fashion Brands on Your Radar This Year

Find your new favorite label.

Despite the cold Copenhagen Fashion Week came through once more this season with stellar designers, both established and emerging, that truly encapsulated why the Danish design scene holds such a global appeal.

Between the dystopian yet sporty stylings of Heliot Emil and the contrasting, ultra-girly dream dresses by Cecilie Bahnsen to the effortlessly cool everyday uniform by Wood Wood, Copenhagen showed it truly has something to suit every style. With trends that transcend far beyond Scandi minimalism and GANNI girl quirk, the city has quickly cemented itself as an epicentre of taste in fashion, design, art and more so we rounded up a cheat-sheet of five Denmark-based brands you absolutely have to keep an eye on this year – you’re welcome.

Of course, Copenhagen Fashion Week and the international tradeshow, Revolver, also attracted the best-dressed locals and industry insiders in their droves – check out our street style gallery for the ultimate outfit inspo.

Résumé

Résumé/Copenhagen Fashion Week

Founded by two sisters, Résumé first launched in 2017 but don’t let its relatively short lifespan fool you – this duo knows what its doing. It currently produces six RTW collections a year and its FW19 offering fused the floaty, printed silks its known for with edgier elements like structured vinyl jackets and sheer layering. Key pieces for us included the quilted metallic silver coat complete with fuzzy pink collars, the camo-print boiler suit and a sleek silky, wide-sleeve dress in neon yellow-green. Keep one eye firmly on these two as they contend for the crown of the go-to brand for all of Copenhagen’s cool girls.

Heliot Emil

Heliot Emil/Revolver

A standout for us during the SS19 season, Heliot Emil didn’t disappoint with its FW19 collection and we managed to grab a closer look at the label’s space at Revolver to properly check out the nuances. Staying true to the brand’s identity and design sensibilities, the Juul brothers stuck to their usual neutral color palette, focusing more on structure and function. A plethora of layering and deconstructed pieces held together with string and functional carabiners stole the show and we can foresee those asymmetrical pant legs becoming a full-on trend.

Cecilie Bahnsen

Cecilie Bahnsen/Copenhagen Fashion Week

LVMH prize finalist Cecilie Bahnsen founded her namesake label four years ago and since, it’s grown to become one of the most anticipated shows on Copenhagen’s schedule. Having worked at the likes of John Galliano and Erdem, it goes without saying that theatrics and volume play a big part in her work, but each of these elements are married with an air of minimalism and femininity that’s uniquely her own. Trust us, you’re going to want to save up for one of these beauties for your next big occasion.

Wood Wood

Although Wood Wood didn’t host a show during this week – it showcased its FW19 during LFW Men’s – it did have a large presence at the Revolver tradeshow, giving us the perfect chance to get up close and personal with the collection. The womenswear was a particular highlight, with the outdoors-inspired pieces perfectly blending together style and substance. The practical, boxy outerwear silhouettes contrasted the feminine, printed dresses, with some cool, sporty tops thrown in for good measure. Besides, those Italian hand-knit sweaters are so soft, you won’t ever want to take them off.

ROTATE Birger Christensen

ROTATE Birger Christensen

ROTATE was undoubtedly once of the buzziest shows this season; a brand created by renowned store Birger Christensen, ROTATE’s design and direction is led by stylists Jeanette Madsen and Thora Valdimars. Centered around dresses after Madsen and Valdimars pinpointed these garments as distinctly missing from their own wardrobes, the FW19 collection included everything from a sequinned slip dress and a textured baby pink dip hem number to a timeless black jacket-dress. Our faves however had to be the metallic hot pink and floral printed minidresses with the exaggerated leg of mutton sleeves.
