Copenhagen Fashion Week's Best Street Style Is Full Of Outfit Inspiration For Chillier Days Ahead
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, but there's another thing that sets the Danish city apart: its attendees. Copenhagen Fashion Week's street style scene is easily one of the most vital sources of outfit inspiration for any fashion person, and the Spring/Summer 2020 season is certainly no exception.
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.
Before diving into the looks, there's one thing to note about Copenhagen's weather this time of year: In August, it's usually breezy and a comfortable 72 degrees — a great forecast for the fashion folk that rely on bikes to get around, much like the rest of the city's commuters. But during Day One of CFW, the skies opened up, giving way to one heck of a downpour during Brogger's outdoor Spring/Summer 2020 show that forced attendees to take cover. Luckily, despite the impromptu torrent, there was no shortage of style inspo.
Ahead, all the best street style from Copenhagen Fashion Week that you'll want to bookmark for chillier days to come.
