Copenhagen Vogue Week Avenue Type Presents a Lesson in Vibrant Dressing

After a year and a half of lockdown and pandemic fears, the consensus among the designers for Spring / Summer 2021 was almost unanimous: drive out the darkness and step into the light. To combat the negative feelings of 2020, Bottega Veneta, Jacquemus, Michael Kors, Kim Shui and many more sent color down their catwalks. Happy pink, bright lavender tones and green in all shades – this became something like a fashion phenomenon– could be seen in almost every collection. During this year’s Copenhagen Fashion Week, which started on August 9th, the effects of the bright color trend flooded the streets of the Danish city. Fashion show visitors could see how they put on their jewelry, their accessories or entire looks with splashes of color. But true to Denmark’s focus on functionality, her outfits were combined with structured jackets and sensible footwear (clogs and Birkenstocks included). And of course this time an important holdover from the quarantine era found its way into CFW: lots of comfortable cords. See the rest of the exciting looks to come from Copenhagen here.
