For a fashion enthusiast, there are two important events that occur in September: the first day of fall (Wednesday the 22, to be exact) and the Spring/Summer runways. But, what many might not know is that the festivities kick off even before then — typically around the second week of August. Yes, Copenhagen Fashion Week’s Spring/Summer 2022 season is here, and the street style is exactly what you’d expect to see in the vibrant city — colorful attire, spot-on tailoring, and genius styling ideas.
What’s in store for the next few days in Denmark? Prepare for lots of excitement, folks — the three-day schedule (OK, technically five if you count the few shows on Monday and Friday) is jam-packed with presentations and shows from cool-girl labels. Thus, make sure to keep an eye out all week to see the collections from designers including Rodebjer, Helmstedt, By Malene Birger, Baum und Pferdgarten, Saks Potts, and more.
And as for the lively streets of Copenhagen, well-known influencers like Maria Bernad, Emili Sindlev, Nnenna Echem, and Pernille Rosenkilde are giving a lesson on what Scandinavian style is all about. Think: ‘70s-inspired colorful vests over white button-down blouses, head-to-toe neon hues, quirky prints like tie-dye, and plenty of traditional outfits. So, as you begin to think about your fall wardrobe, first take a glance at these style icons for some outfit inspiration.
