The Copenhagen runway’s three finest shows ranged from clean and cool to thoroughly classy.
Clean, cool and very Scandinavian, the Bruuns Bazaar collection was an exercise in restraint, with precise skirts and trousers set off against boxy sweaters and neoprene tops. For men, the ubiquitous rollneck, styled under T-shirts and shirts, was strong alongside neat tailoring.
Drum roll, please! The ever-eccentric Henrik Vibskov took the Carlsberg factory setting and turned it into a banging set of mechanical drums, complete with models walking to the beat. Long-line, fluid shapes contrasted with sharper, tailored pieces, delicate prints and bold accessories.

Setting the scene with a cosily lit front row, champagne and soundtrack from The Godfather, the clothes at By Malene Birger exuded the same class as the environment. Lace, sheer and silky fabrics gave soft movement to a collection that also featured hints of mint green,which is Drapers’ tip as fashion’s next big womenswear colour.
