Danish Girl. Cecilie Bahnsen AW18

Slide1-kopia

LVMH Prize finalist Cecilie Bahnsen draws on the minimalist aesthetic of her Danish heritage for her eponymous, Copenhagen-based label. The Royal College of Art graduate’s selection of ethereal gowns, elegant dresses and sophisticated separates are a showcase of girlie silhouettes with a sculptural edge. Each piece is handmade with phenomenally soft, fluffy fabrics and finished with couture-like details. For autumn-winter 2018, especially look out for tulle dresses in pastel pink and those cute, quilted skirts. Copenhagen fashion week is a great source of fresh designers with Scandinavian sensibility, and this time around, it’s Cecilie that caught everyone’s eye. Also, feel free to fall in love with this velvet goodie and one of these collars coming from Bahnsen.

Acne Studios in Berlin

IMG_0375

It’s impossible not to love Acne Studios for at least two reasons: it’s edgy, yet wearable clothing, and remarkable store designs across the world. Although the one on Potsdammer Straße in Berlin isn’t the newest addition to Acne family, it’s a place where you want to stay for longer. Like in an art gallery, the wide, metallic tables display Acne’s sculptural wedges and arty sandals. One-of-a-kind chairs, piles of signature, pink shoe-boxes, industrial ceiling lamps: the store reflects the multi-faceted chcarecter of Jonny Johnasson‘s aesthetic. As the current menswear collection features a lot of lovely pastel pink (like the rubber sole of the shoes I’m trying below), one of the sellers wore a pair of pants in a matching colour. “Boys should wear more pink!” he said. Indeed!
