Step into Trending Scandi Styles

The top trends emerging from Copenhagen Fashion Week.

It’s hailed for a unification of dainty and striking, delicate and harsh and epitomizing cool-girl fashion. The Scandinavian style came to a climax last week at Copenhagen Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2022. This year’s Fashion Week saw a plethora of emerging designers strut their stuff on both physical and virtual runways. As well as a return of our favourite danish designers – Ganni, Saks Potts and Stine Goya. There was a revival of utility wear – from cargo pants to army green trench coats, a dominance of neon green, a nod to snow clothing and an absolute abundance of knitwear. Perhaps the biggest trend of all, the Scandinavians again pledged their allegiance to sustainability through their with Climaider. The Scandinavian tendance for the unconventional is expected at every fashion show - the Danes never do dull.

Knit From Top To Toe

A turtleneck here and a knitted vest there – some may argue knitwear has never been out of fashion.

The runways at Copenhagen have established that knitwear is cool again. It’s here to stay and we are here for it!

Copenhagen Fashion Week certainly didn’t showcase subtle knitwear – it was a complete amalgamation of knitted anything!

There was an electric blue knit dress, high neck vests with cap sleeves, knitted dresses over flared knitted pants and a low waisted knitted mini skirt.

Brands like Baum and Pferdgarten, SamsoeSamsoe and Fassbender all took their take on the trend.

Acne Studios’ Gradient Sweater in Blue encapsulates the trend too well. It’s bright, chunky and has a relaxed silhouette.

Constructed form a soft mohair blend, the knitted V-neck sweater has a gentle frayed look, which complements the ombre colours almost too well.

Proenza Schouler is another incredible brand that does knit well. Their Rib Knit Long Sleeve Sweater in Fuchsia and Coconut is the perfect wardrobe staple.

It has a flattering crew neck, form fitting slim fit and side hem vents complete with tortoise shell and black buttons.

Your only options are to get the knitting needles out or browse our favourite knits. Grandma chic is here to stay.

Watch Out For Neon Green

Since the creation of ‘Bottega green’, green has been the colour of a (very long, some may say too long) season.

It seems a new shade, one much brighter and bound to stop traffic is in fashion.

Neon Green was spotted across a multiplicity of brands, from the likes of the Scandi-favourite, Ganni to Saks Potts and Stine Goya.

We’re certain we’ll soon see the takeover of the tradie tinge of green.

Dries Van Noten have crafted a silk-satin shirt in the most enticing shade of neon green.

It’s a striking take on the classic white shirt, begging to be worn with a pair of denim jeans, tailored trousers or even a silk skirt.

Christopher John Roger’s Neon Wool Bustier Top is everything one could want from a neon green top.

Made from wool, the corset features a square neck, with adjustable and detabale straps, internal boning and the best part, a curved bodice.

For a more subtle splash of the colour, we love Wittner’s Kandie Leather Square Toes Sandals.

They totally transform the mule heel, culminating in an shoe that’s contemporary, playful and sure to elevate any ensemble.

Considering the rise of the futuristic fashion, reminiscent of the 1960’s space race, it’s really no surprise that the highlighter shade is threatening to take the fashion world by storm.

Calling for Cargo

This year the Scandinavians have taken cargo pants and turned it up about five notches.

The utilitarian look was omnipresent, with Saks Potts, Gestuz, Tomorrow Denim and Fassbender all contributing to the trend.

Saks Potts stereotypically showcases pieces with playfulness and femineity at its core.

On 2 February 2022, we saw pants with oversized front pockets, visible clasps, buttons, and a parade of army green.

The star of the show was a trench coat in a deep army green colour. It had all the usual trench coat characteristics but with an overbearing pocket that can only be described as ode to utilitarian workwear.

For the ultimate take on the trend, we simply adore All About Eve’s Sherpa Utility Jacket in Khaki. It’s lined with Sherpa fabric which endearingly peeps out at the collar and around the wrist.

The jacket’s façade makes rooms for two billowing pockets, that boast both practicality and high fashion.

Bottega Veneta’s High-rise Cargo Pant is a chic take on utility dressing.

Made from technical wool, the cyan blue pants feature pressed pleats down the front of the leg with zips, a belt loop and of course, oversized pockets on the upper thigh.

They’ve even got a matching military jacket, all available on MYTHERESA.

Snowed In

One of the most unsuspecting and unconventional trends at Copenhagen Fashion Week was centred around snow gear.

Albeit, the danish designers were showcasing there was Autumn/Winter 2022 collections.

Within the ‘snowed out’ trend, there was an influx of microtrends garnered to keeping warm.

We spotted deconstructed puffer jackets, ski boots, sleeves so long they finished at the fingers, trench coats and a whole lot of Sherpa and teddy bear fabric.

Holzweiler’s Fall 2022 collected epitomized the trend, pairing chunky scarfs with padded pants and layering puffer jackets with leather coats.

Their fall collection was reminiscent of Star Wars themed fashion with a padded vest jacket, puffer padded collars and

Instead of moon boots, there was moon shoes, with brightly hued laces wrapped around the ankle.

The Scandinavians are certainly good at taking the clunky or unexpected and making it a cool.

Acne Studios’ Quilted Down Jacket is the perfect puffer to align with this trend.

It comes in a cropped cut, with a matter finish and in a shade titled ‘mushroom beige’. It features ribbed accents, slouched shoulders and the iconic acne studios logo at the back.

Alternatively, Nasty Gal’s Vinyl Borg Double Breasted Jacket will satisfy your Sherpa and snow jacket needs whilst keeping the hip pocket happy.
