TOP collections at CPHFW






If anyone asks me how was the Copenhagen Fashion Week, I say I loved it in a second. So many great collections, such a stylish crowd around, such a cool city to be in - how could you not? 
What I like the most about Scandinavian fashion is that it almost looks as if the designers' team was working under no pressure. Which is probably not true at all, but just the feeling of not making too much effort makes the atmosphere so relaxed and that is one of the main things I look up to in fashion. Simplicity is the key. Am I right?

Before the autumn comes I want to share the top SS17 collections from Copenhagen Fashion Week. There is no first or second here, I am not rating them. It's just the ones that I subjectively enjoyed the most. Hopefully you did/will too.

I will start with Fonnesbech (picture above). A brand, that has a suprisingly long history in a fashion world. It was founded in 1847 and grew from a small basement shop to an exclusive department store, to a successful brand later on, that stands for high quality, sophisticated and responsible fashion.
Classy with a twist - that is how I would describe the SS17 collection and that would also be quite an accurate description of the brand as a whole. Sun bleached color range and flexible silluethes, as well as the set of the runway and the live music, created a very relaxed atmosphere.
Every piece in it is pretty much what I would add to my pinterest board these days. Even if there was nothing unexpected, I praise Fonnesbech for giving the modern feeling while standing true to their brand. Well done, Mia Lisa Spon!




A brand that does not compromise when it comes to quality or esthetics and is far from being boring at the same time - that is Baum und Pferdgarten. The company is run by two creatives, Rikke Baumgarten and Helle Hestehave, who established their brand in 1999 and ever since the beginning have been constantly complementing and challenging each other in creating collections filled with clashing contrasts, strong colors and memorable prints.
The SS17 collection is no different. And even if it might look chaotic at a first glance, the collection is composed from classy wardrobe staples as well as avant-garde pieces for the client who is looking for a bit more quirkiness in her life. Pajama suits, one of the main trends in CPHFW, included.




In the set like this, anything would look perfect. Being in a lush garden behind Glyptoteket, created a feeling of  a midsummer dream. However I am not saying that Lovechild 1979 SS17 collection was "anything" - not at all. The brand lived up to the name and presented a high level of quality line, full of florals, soft pastels, silky suits and dresses.

The collection was one of the few that didn't give the 90's feeling and even though I am a fan of the decade, it was nice to see something different. Accented waists, knee-lenght skirts and scarfs around the neck gave the girls a classy, dressy look bringing the viewer back to the 1950's. In addition to this, Anne-Dorthe Larsen managed to show an image of a strong confident women, fitting in today's society perfectly, while still being an elegant and sensitive creature. How's that possible? Well take a look at the collection, I am pretty sure you'll see what I mean.

in streets of Copenhagen | CPHFW





jumpsuit - Lindex, bag - COW vintage, silver jacket - STUDIO KAROLINA, sunglasses - Zaful



Oh how much I love this city. Copenhagen streets are definitely one of the most beautiful to wander. 

When a few fashion week events are in your schedule, you obviously think about what you're going to wear. I took an easy road here. Couple of days before my flight I went to STUDIO KAROLINA's studio and basically robbed it. Which I don't regret at all, every piece I wore got tons of compliments and definitely helped me to stand out in the crowd. So THANK YOU Karolina and go go go girl! There are lots of talented lithuanians out there but for me personally, STUDIO KAROLINA is one of the brands that really stands out and since she is still very young, I think she could and should do a lot in perspective. 

And since this post has become a thank you post, I would also like to thank my friend Viktorija for being a wonderful host! And a great photographer, too  #filmisnotdead

breakfast at Tommy Hilfiger | CPHFW

If you follow my Instagram, you obviously know what I've been doing last week. It was hard to miss such thing. If you not (although you know you should), oh well, keep on reading. I've been attending  Copenhagen Fashion Week shows and events and now, since I'm back home, I'm going to post series of posts about it. 

So, here is the very first part of my three days in Copenhagen. 
I started out the fashion week by attending breakfast at Tommy Hilfiger showroom. After an early 7AM flight, that was a great kick putting me in a fashion week mood. Coffee, tasty breakfast snacks, stylish people and pretty clothes around - who would refuse a chance to start a day like that?

Coats are definitely my thing and raincoats.. Well I love them even more! I think that's one of the reasons why I'm not complaining about this autumn-like summer so much. Stop whining, put on a beautiful raincoat instead - you'll get that tan next year.

This grey beauty is from new Lithuanian brand Dear Freedom and there's no better feeling than supporting local talents, especially when they do it so right. Check out their page HERE, summer sale is on too!

I don't work in the office and even though I'm not jealous of 9 to 5 work inside, god how jealous I am for all the opportunities to become an office diva. If you wear the same little jacket all year long - well, that's mainly your problem. In my eyes, office outfits can and should be eye-catching, trendy and on top of that - super elegant. 
There's no need to experiment with colors if you are not a fan of brightness in everyday life. Try different cuts, constructions instead or simply choose a more extravagant accessory.
