Despite not being one of the "Big Four" fashion weeks, Copenhagen's three-day-long showcase has become one of the biggest sartorial players in the world. Sure, that's mostly due to the rising popularity of cult labels like Cecilie Bahnsen, Saks Potts, Ganni, and Stine Goya — many of which have been picked up by luxury retailers like Net-a-Porter, MATCHESFASHION.com, and Farfetch — but there's another thing that sets the Danish city apart: its attendees. Copenhagen Fashion Week's street style scene, especially for Fall/Winter 2020is easily one of the most vital sources of outfit inspiration for any fashion person.
Copenhagen's still a bit of a newcomer compared to New York, London, Milan, and Paris fashion weeks. But over the last few seasons, it's begun to command almost as much attention as the heavy hitters thanks to influencers like Jeanette Madsen, Pernille Teisbaek, Emili Sindlev, and Sophia Roe, all of whom have style enviable enough to put the satellite city on the map. While not all the street style stars identify as minimalists, Danish style is inherently pared down. Think: thick knits in neutral colorways, beige-on-beige-on-beige, and silhouettes that rely on smart layering rather than bright colors for Instagram appeal.
This time of year, Copenhagen can be exceptionally chilly. But with temps hovering around the mid-40s, show-goers aren't exactly weather-proofing their looks. Ahead, all the best street style from Copenhagen Fashion Week that you'll want to bookmark for chillier days to come.
