Ahead of Copenhagen fashion week, top Danish brands to know now: Ganni, Stine Goya, Cecilie Bahnsen, and more
We've made no secret in the past of our passion for Danish fashion — from both on and off the catwalk — and are predictably frothing at the mouth for some Scandi style goodness from Copenhagen Fashion Week, which opens today. As far as infectious ailments go, a fatal weakness for Danish fashion isn't all that terrible; so, in the event you've not already discovered fashion's Great Danes (quelle horreur!), we've rounded up our favourite labels for your perusal below.
Founded in 2006, Stine Goya is one of the older names on this list. Boasting a hundreds-strong list of stockists worldwide, it looks as though the brand will be flying the flag for Danish designers for quite some time to come.
Riotous mashups of patterns and colour from this cool-girl go-to have won over the likes of Leandra Medine, Lykke Li, and Gigi Hadid; and who could blame them?
Baum Und Pferdgarten
Seasoned veterans Rikke Baumgarten and Helle Hestehave — who celebrate their 20th anniversary in business this year — have their formula for appealingly fuss-free clothes down pat. Suggestible shoppers beware.
Having cut her teeth at John Galliano and Erdem, it's no surprise that this designer's aesthetic skews hyper-feminine; expect nothing more than the highest attention to detail and finish from Bahsen, even when it comes to her riff on the 'ugly sandal' trend.
Redesigning a core collection of staples season after season, Mads Nørgaard is a safe and easy bet for trend-immune (or just plain trend-fatigued) fashionistas.
Rotate Birger Christensen
Influencers and design newcomers Jeanette Madsen and Thora Valdimars know what works on camera, accounting for the failsafe, photogenic qualities of their party frocks.
