Fashion pop quiz: Which European city is lauded for its residents’ signature voluminous dresses and sneakers combo, and its unexpected styling tricks? (We’ll give you a hint... think Cecilie Bahnsen.) If Copenhagen came to mind first, bravo — you know your stuff. Indeed, Scandi fashion girls are known for their quirky, cool sartorial sensibilities; however, once fashion week begins in the Danish capital, everyone joins in on the fun, as you’ll see by the street style at Copenhagen Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2024. And considering some of the industry’s top trendsetters, including Grece Ghanem, Emili Sindlev, and Sophia Roe, are in attendance this season, you can expect the week to be bursting with one playful look after the next thanks to residents and out-of-towners.
Case in point? Despite the rainy weather on Day 1, showgoers presented no shortage of adventurous looks. Did you catch Amsterdam-based tastemaker Fia Hamelijnck’s graphic tee atop a striped button-down? It’s a fresh layering technique worth trying ASAP. Meanwhile, fashion influencer Mija Knezevic delivered a masterclass on color coordination with her intriguing combo of pastel blue, bright orange, and punchy purple.
The five-day extravaganza also gives everyone a first glimpse into what the style set will wear in the coming months. Slated a few weeks before the official fashion month begins, it’s the ultimate testing ground for this season’s It items (Bottega Veneta’s Tubular bag is already making waves).
