Prettiness. Cecilie Bahnsen SS19


Cloudy. Soft. Fragile. The Beguilded cast’s wardrobe in 2018. Feminine. Light. Should I continue with other phrases and associations I’ve got with Cecilie Bahnsen’s fashion? The designer has just presented her collection during the Copenhagen fashion week and made it clear that no one else does a dress like her (well, except for Molly Goddard). Cecilie likes her silhouettes to be full, but not overwhelming – no dramatic ball gowns here, but rather everyday-princess ensembles to love and wear. Pouf sleeves and peplums are always on Bahnsen’s runway, just like spaghetti straps. For spring-summer 2019, she as well added a bit of florals and the very unexpected dad sandals, which well balanced all that prettiness. At one point of browsing the collection, you might feel that you’re seeing the same dress, just in different modifications. Well, this repetitiveness isn’t to the Danish designer’s disadvantage. There’s consistency flowing from one collection to the other, which is especially valued among emerging designers. Wait, but can we call Bahnsen a classical case of an emerging designer? If only every big brand could boast with so many sold out dresses in every single, major on-line store…
