Copenhagen got its freak on for the last full day of Fashion Week shows! From one of a kind pieces with wacky headdress accessories that looked paper mached right onto the models head to circus chic outfits worn by models running through the equivalent of giant striped hamster wheels, the styles today were definitely a bit quirky.MoonSpoon Saloon
Created as a collaboration between a designer, an artist, a photographer, and a stylist, the label only consists of 99 unique limited-edition pieces, showcased each season with only 10-15 pieces at a time. Once those pieces have all been designed and completed, that’s all folks! The project is over. This season’s collection showcased the quirky results with circus performer style, shag, sheer, and burst of dark, moody colors. It was like an arts and crafts fashion project gone awry.Wood Wood
The Scandinavian streetwear label was showcased in a cramped by casually cool space where models literally had to watch out for our shoes and handbags while they tromped down the runway. Showing both guys and girls pieces, this season’s designs brought out some bright blocks of color, baggy and comfortably draped cloaks tied with rope belts and large, woodsy sweaters your boyfriend will try stealing from you for a change.bARBARA I gONGINI
Fascinated by graphic forms, abstract shapes, and tulle, native Dane Barbara I Gongini gave us a goth show to remember. Using mostly black, white, and gray, with one giant burst of yellow and red in a tulle-tastic poofy dress, the outfits in this line were gothy fun. Add to that the fact that the tulle pieces weren’t just randomly knotted, but created using a Faroese traditional knitting technique, and these pieces were easily some of the most memorable of the day.Cheap Monday
If you still love your Cheap Monday jeans you picked up at Urban Outfitters last season, but the recession is hurting your cash flow a bit too much to pick up another this time around, fear not! This season’s line is all about hobo cool apparently. Ripped and shredded, and patched up to almost beyond recognition, their new collection was actually complemented with cardboard hats, crowns, suitcases, and guitars. And according to the designers, they were actually inspired by the subtle nuances of black and blue in oil and the color and texture of cardboard. Someone’s been spending a bit too much time in the warehouse lately…Malene Birger
As if you didn’t know that giants, multiple draped of necklaces were going to be in this season already, Malene Birger made sure to take it the one extra step and remind you, with draped, humongous pearls down to the models’ tiny waistlines. As one of the most popular and difficult shows to get into this week, Malene put on a hell of a show, throwing away everyone’s fears of a crashing economy to instead opt for the more refined and beautiful pieces that make you want to place dress up. Henrik Vibskov
Take a step away from the traditional big white runway scene and imagine the farthest from a runway setup you can imagine. Do you see giant black and white stripes and um…. Hamster wheels? Vibskov did. And we loved it. After walking down half a dizzyingly striped runway in an old military base hangar you could bride the men at the door with two packs of cigarettes to get into, the both male and female models adorned in royal jester attire, literally climbed up and tried their hand at the four wheels, running until they could do so no more. All the stripes and colors and popped-out semi-skirts were surprisingly fun and immaculately put together. And we couldn’t imagine a better place to show them, and then celebrate with a massive party afterwards.
