Copenhagen fashion week highlights: bruuns bazaar

by Harry Sheff

Last week I was fortunate enough to attend Copenhagen Fashion Week Festival sponsored by the Copenhagen Fashion Council. The four-day trip was jam-packed with fashion shows, tradeshows, menswear shop visits and an afternoon of touristy-sightseeing. Keep your eyes out this week for more online coverage, as well as in MR’s April issue.

Bruuns Bazaar was created by two brothers Teis and Bjorn Bruun in 1994 and has since evolved into an international design company. The show opened with a dramatic 3-D film at Copenhagen’s City Hall and then launched into the catwalk. The menswear collection was inspired by two distinct looks: classic (tailored suits, dress shirts and tweed blazers) and creative (canvas pants and checked wovens) in a range of staple colors (blues, grays and neutrals with pops of deep red accents). Knits played an important role as a way to make the classic suit more casual, enforcing the dressy/casual trend that’s been strong in the contemporary market.
