To be perfectly honest, ever since big guns like ACNE left the Scandinavian fashion scene I’m having a hard time finding genuine inspiration from Danish and Swedish brands. I used to wait eagerly for their fashion weeks as it was always full of new ideas from emerging designers but now it seems like they all look the same. Baum und Pferdgarten is a huge let down this season and even though Ganni still seems like the forefront brand of Danish fashion, they can’t make the jump between a local brand and a global sensation.
That being said, there are some brands like By Malene Birger who don’t necessarily bring anything new to the scene but is still agreeable simply because they have too much Phoebe Philo in their codes. So now, as I think Copenhagen is in dire need of some new blood, I’m enjoying the beautiful stylings of By Malene Birger and getting ready for fall. I know it’s the Spring 2017 collection but since it’s like a low budget remake of Céline Fall 2016, I’m taking it as fall inspiration the sequel.
