28 Jan CPHFW : IMAGINE TALENTS

Kopenhagenfur

Im wearing:
Fur – Kopenhagen Fur
Jacket – Weekday
Jeans – Wolford
T-shirt – Vintage Adidas
Bag – Christian Dior
Shoes – Tiger of Sweden

………………………..

My fashion week began tuesday night with the extraordinary Kopenhagen Fur fashion show last night.
I was blown away by the creative designs shown on the catwalk. I filmed backstage with Muse Me Channel, so stay tuned for an exclusive look behind the scenes.
Kopenhagen fur was kind to borrow me the amazing yellow/grey fur, and I will wear it again tomorrow and hopefully get a bit of attention from the streetstyle photographers.
Isn’t it crazy how well it went with my Adidas shirt? I mean it’s the exact same colors!
Do you remember how much attention it got at LFW?

I really like the mix of black, blue and brown here, normally it’s very bad, but it somehow looks kinda great here.
Dont you think?

22 Jan WHAT TO WEAR FOR FASHION WEEK?

fashion weekinsp

……………………….

I’ve tried to plan my outfits ahead, since I have 12 outfits to plan(!?)
I wan’t each one to be eyecathing and colorful, with a cool scandinavian feel to it. And to help me keep my mind straight I decided to create a moodboard, just to get a little overview.
The nude leather jacket from Weekday, could be styled with an emerald dress and light pink turtleneck.
The jacket I made myself might look best only styled with red, black and blue.
It could be cool to wear a denim on denim look, topped with a ladylike touch from the scarf.
I definitely want to wear my Architectural feather dress, but I gotta find out how to style it for the cold weather.
Last but not least, the bubble cum suit might look cool with a pants beneath skirt look?

How would you style the items above?
Any items , trends or style you think I should include for a perfect fashion week outfit? I would love to hear your thoughts!

11 Jan VISIT : KOPENHAGEN FUR

_MG_5606I would like to point out, this post is not meant to be provocative or start a debate about fur.
I was simply curious about the material, fur, and asked Kopenhagen Fur to visit and get a peek into some of the processes the fur goes throw before it’s a made into fashion or so.
I was curious about the techniques and general knowledge about fur, because I felt like I knew quite little about it.
If you too are a bit curious, feel free to read along :)

_MG_5607

All the minks are categorized and sorted, the first steps by machines and later by hand.
It takes three years to be educated as a mink-sorter, but many says that even after 20 years in the business they still don’t feel like they know all there is to know about the fur._MG_5605

After the machines sorts it roughly the sorters take over, they divide it into three categories best, medium, standard.
The quality depends on the similarity in the fur, the color, lengths of hair and length of body._MG_5603

Twice a year Kopenhagen fur hosts an auction, they sell mainly mink, but also chinchilla(as seen on the picuture), seal and fox. The fur is never sold individually, but in a bunch of similar skins; colorwise, in length and so on.
Otherwise it would be visible when being put together in a coat for example._MG_5599

For inspiration different suppliers show their techniques,  for example dying the fur.
Heres mink in every color you could wish for!_MG_5593

They also show techniques for preparing the fur for apparel, here the fur is expanded in length, just by making small cuts on the back of the skin. _MG_5596 _MG_5595

The creative team behind Kopenhagen Fur Studio shows their new invented techniques as well!_MG_5612

You might recognize the tassels from many of my outfits on the blog. I love having them dazzling on my bag as an extra accessories. I saw all the new colors and designs in OH! by Kopenhagen Furs showroom._MG_5613 _MG_5615……………………..

I learned a lot on my visit, I was even lucky enough the randomly run into a mink farmer. She told me about the minks, and how the most beautiful furs came from happy and healthy animals. And it was therefore both her job and passion to take good care of the animals before they go. She showed me her own fur accessories, some that she had worn the last 20 years. And with an ironic tone said that it had been impossible to get worn out.

I like the thought of having items that lasts, more than a season or two.  On the other hand I like to experiment and dress up in the crazy trends. But maybe one does not necessarily excludes the other. A fur can be redesigned, especially since the material itself really hard to wear out. You can shorten it and make a collar, hat or accessories  instead. You can mix the furs, apply a different color. The possibilities are endless.

I’m happy to know a bit more about fur, it’s a material that I’m still curious about and fascinated of.
I will continue to both wear it and incorporating it into my designs, but be very strict about the resources and quality.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

When it was snowing like crazy Victor and I couldn’t pass the opportunity to be the first to walk in it, and off cause shoot photos as well!
I guess these pictures doesn’t say a lot about my outfit, but I like them a lot anyway. The snow looks like it would in christmas movie, and it gives the pictures a surreal feel to them.
To be true, it was freezing and the shoes where very unpractical, but I guess thats bloggers luck in wintertime!
