Han KjobenhavnFor the fall/winter ‘17 collection, Han Kjøbenhavn co-founders Jannik Wikkelsø Davidsen and Tim Hancock drew inspiration from childhood stories and folklore, as well as the relationship between man and nature.

The season’s narrative references three archetypes: the man, represented in the tweed and plaid pieces; the dog, represented in the custom jacquard prints; and the rat, seen within the collection’s ornate embroidery and floral knits.

The collection embraces core Han Kjøbenhavn pieces, such as loose-fitting tracksuits, chunky knitwear, puffer coats and unconventional suiting, integrating a new approach to tailoring. References to the brand’s Danish heritage are evident in the use of traditional materials such as denim, velour, tweed and fur in a rich, earthy color palette of burnt orange, rust, mustard and royal blue.

Stand-out pieces include a dog-print jacquard coat, leather motorcycle pants and a floor-length puffer jacket in rich olive green.

Founded in Copenhagen in 2008, Han Kjøbenhavn can be found at its stores in New York, Copenhagen and Paris, and in select specialty retailers around the world.
