IT’S ELECTRIFYING ”I got chills, they’re multiplying!” The lyrics from a softer, sexier version of Grease’s ’You’re the one that I want’ sounded clearly through City Hall yesterday when Stine Goya presented her show. The sight of it did bring chills, and indeed something in there was multiplying. Goya’s collection was beautifully true to the designer’s beloved quirky chic. And in what seemed to be an attempt to further cement her identity as a designer, Goya had styled all the show’s models in bright orange wigs, mimicking her own long mane with its trademark sharply cut front, making it seem like she herself was multiplying on the runway. That was pretty cool. What is also cool this fashion week is a general feeling of optimism and progress. On the runways, this was reflected in Stine Goya’s glitzy golden evening dresses and long gold fringes; in Norwegian Veronica B. Vallenes’s upbeat pastels fusioned with a sharp Nordic simplicity; and in Benedikte Utzon’s ladylike golden jackets and flower blouses. It was also seen in the wide variety of whites and sparkling pinks, oranges and yellows as well as gold and saffron and bubblegum pastels, for instance in Designers Remix’s whites with bold neon green lime. It all adds up to a new sort of glamorous minimalism. That is not all. Danish Fashion Institute’s collaboration with the Union Against Eating Disorders has finally resulted in an age limit of 16 for models in Copenhagen Fashion Week,

and still more forces in Danish fashion are backing the project. A string of Danish designers have voiced their support to Eva Kruse, who in this issue of Dansk Daily phrases a new aim to establish a healthier lean and slim look in fashion. Even nutritional expert and ex-model Christian Bitz’s ground rules for backstage food (forget champagne and candy) seem to have caught on. At least one model was seen leaving Goya’s show happily munching on rye bread with hummus. At the same time, it seems the need to extend our awareness of sustainability in fashion has at last reached Christiansborg, home of the Danish government. This week, environmental minister Karen Ellemann visited companies that work to promote eco-friendly and sustainable design. Also, one of the hottest names on the front row so far this year has been political party leader Margrethe Vestager. While the fashion week was thus attended by a top politician, elsewhere Silas Adler of Soulland and Malene Birger toasted the fact that their significance in Danish fashion have, deservedly, been celebrated with postal stamps in their honor. Meanwhile, Bruuns Bazaar and Noir, both promoting new creative directors, told Dansk Daily’s Elsebeth Mouritzen that they’ve received a lot of positive attention from fashion lovers and buyers et al. And who can blame them? It’s hard not to want to buy into the new Spring/ Summer collections. Minimalism still rules the fashion world. That doesn’t mean it’s dull.

6.00 Malene Birger del. B.S.J. sc. – 2011

SEND YOUR MAIL IN A FASHIONABLE WAY Sending airmail is so unfashionable these days, but with the new fashion stamps, it might just get a little more fun. Post Danmark asked designers Silas Adler of Soulland and the namesake of By Malene Birger to design two different fashion stamps, launching all over Denmark yesterday during Copenhagen fashion week. It’s the first time ever that fashion designers create stamps in Denmark, so this is not just an honor – it’s also evidence that the artistic dimensions in fashion are being taken seriously.

Anne loves new talent Executive editor Anne is thrilled about the many new exciting talents debuting this season on the runway during Copenhagen Fashion Week: ”Anne Sofie Madsen, Helje Hamre and Dennis Lyngsø are some of the debutants I am looking forward to seeing this season.”

IBEN’S PICK OF THE DAY Much to our delight, Baum und Pferdgarten is back on the show track and again the duo showcases an elegant maturity added to their trademark circus-like chic. This flock printed coat with ¾ sleeves and knitted pipings, and jersey hooded top is cool yet understated chic with Breton striped shorts.

STOMP ON ALL YOUR EX-GIRLFRIENDS House Of Montague is a newly-established footwear company for men based in Copenhagen, which earlier this summer debuted at the PREMIUM MEN trade show in Berlin. The label is off for another debut as they are showing their collection for SS12 at the TERMINAL-2 trade show in Copenhagen. House Of Montague’s aim is to create high-end quality sneakers at an affordable price, without compromising the quality in the materials used. All shoes are manufactured in Europe with materials sourced from European suppliers. The debut collection consist four styles, all named after the ex-girlfriends of the designer and owner.

Which is really the basic quality of any good makeup: Show but don’t tell. Because in the end, you want people to notice your skin and not your foundation…

A softer pop The Danish fashion brand Soft Gallery’s SS12 children and women’s collection has been inspired by pop art, a movement which in surprising and eclectic ways combined the sphere of popular culture with the world of art. As always, Soft Gallery features different artists for the collection, including Fontaine Anderson, Rafaela de Campos, Karen Segall and Sarah Becker.

ILLUSTRATOR ON THE GO Fashion shoppers in SoHo are up for a new privilegewhen shopping for luxurious shoes on fashionable Prince Street. Danish illustrator Rikke Jørgensen has been asked to decorate a wall in the flagship store of hip New Yorker brand Sigerson Morrison. Originally trained as an architect from The Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Rikke Jørgensen has illustrated for magazines like Nylon, Italian A-Magazine, Versus and Branding and Design and done campaigns for GAP and Schweppes. There is good reason to mark the name of the illustrator who is currently on demand from a wide variety of fashion brands — from local darlings Upcoming Creatures to none other than Tom Ford.

For lunch I would try the traditional Danish ’smørrebrød’, which are open-faced sandwiches. You can find places all over town, but I really love Royal Cafe near Storkespringvandet at the central Amager Torv, where you can try smørrebrød with a contemporary twist! The coziest café that I know of is Tante T in Vesterbro’s Viktoriagade. I love tea, and Tante T is this small tea shop with every flavor of tea you can imagine. So if you’re of the same tea-loving persuasion, this should be your new favorite dig.

CREATING THE IDEAL BEAUTY Words — Iben Albinus Sabroe

Illustrator — Rikke Jørgensen


Six centimeters may not seem a lot. But if you consider that it’s how much the ideal international hip-size for a female model has shrunk over the past ten years, it is quite a cause for concern. At least it’s what forces in Danish fashion believe, which is why Copenhagen Fashion Week is seeing a line of new initiatives designed to take on the shrinking beauty ideal. A lower age limit of 16 years has been established by Danish Fashion Institute and the nine largest Danish model agencies, putting an end to a growing demand for 14 and 15 year old girls on the runways. The initiative was born out of a collaboration between Danish Fashion Insitute and The Union Against Eating Disorders, who in 2007 presented ’The Ethical Charter of the Fashion Industry.’ ”The charter was a shared commitment in which we agreed to openly address these possible problems. These include the possibility that people working in fashion are more exposed to eating disorders because we work in a business that is all about being very thin, very tall and very young,” says Eva Kruse, director of Danish Fashion Institute and Copenhagen Fashion Week. ”It is not our business to change that, seeing as the ideal beauty at a given time will always be something that appears to be unattainable for the majority people in that culture. When people have been poor and there has been a shortage of foods, the trend was not to be thin. In an affluent society, the trend is reversed. But we do want to make sure that our models have the ideal working conditions and the means and support to have a healthier life in the business, and we strive to enforce a more natural and healthy lean and slim look,” says Eva Kruse. YET, THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE WHEN IT COMES TO KEEPING THE MODELS HEALTHY IS THE GROWING – OR RATHER SHRINKING – DEMANDS FROM THE INTERNATIONAL FASHION SCENE. ”We want our models to be slim in a healthy way, and we do not want to push a girl with a hip size of 91 down to 86.” A common means to measure physical health is BMI, but Eva Kruse and her colleagues disregard the method: ”The only thing BMI tells you is the relation between your height and your weight. It does not reveal whether or not a young girl is skinny because she is built that way or because she deprives herself of good food.” The Union Against Eating Disorders and Danish Fashion Institute now aim to introduce a health check, which is in the interest of many models.

when discussing weight loss with a young girl. We teach them to eat well and exercise.It’s still a challenge when you play in the big league.” ”The power is all with the casting agents for the big fashion brands, such as Prada, Chanel and Calvin Klein. High fashion dictates the ideal, and if you look at campaigns for Prada, Balenciaga and Chanel, the girls look 15 years old. The problem is that because the designers sew their collection up in a size XXX-small, the girls have to be so young that they do not have a female form yet. So when they mature and grow curves, the casters lose interest in them.” This means that a great model can be finished after three seasons. It’s not that I want to go back to the 90s when the supermodels ruled. Today’s models have more personality and beauty can also be defined by big ears or imperfect teeth. But people at the model agencies are sick and tired of telling skinny girls they have to be skinnier,” says Damgaard. He has made it a personal promise to improve terms for his models, even to a point where he has, apparently, succeeded in teasing a fashion powerhouse like Prada.

”We need to change the general attitude. We all have a responsibility when it comes to which models are being booked, and what sort of beauty ideal we share. I mean, isn’t it enough now?! Shouldn’t we put an end to the idealization of androgynous, boy-women?!” She makes her to appeal to designers as well as casters. When Susanne Rützou sews her styles up in a size 38, she needs models size 38 to wear them; and according to Eva Kruse, other designers would do well to follow her example. Another leading pioneer on the quest to create a healthier beauty ideal is Peter Damgaard, owner and director of modelling agency 2PM. Inspired by the Ethical Charter of 2007, he opened 2PM Academy which engages the models in a sort of health-training program. Basically, it teaches the young men and women how to be fit and healthy, mentally as well as physically, and how to develop a strong sense of self. ”I want to make sure that we’re on the same page — — page page 10 10 — —

WHEN 2PM IS ASKED FOR POLAROIDS OF ITS MODELS FROM PRADA’S CASTING DIRECTOR RUSSELL MARSH AND HIS POWERFUL COLLEAGUES, DAMGAARD CLADS THEM IN T-SHIRTS SAYING: ”WHEN CAN I EATAGAIN MR. MARSH?” Rumor has it the casting offices of Prada and Miu Miu in Milan were not exactly pleased with 2pm’s T-shirt statements. ”If that’s the case, I am satisfied, because it means our message has been received.” Peter Damgaard does not dispute the greatness of Prada’s name, but so far the agency owner has proved there are other ways to work than via the extremely competitive atmosphere of the runways, where everyone secretly aims at a big campaign. Winning a campaign for Chanel or Prada is like winning the ultimate championship. 2pm’s current star model Dorte was held back because he didn’t want her to suffer a ’butterfly’ career: ”I’ve seen too many models postpone high school and leave their friends and families to have short careers doing hard work in a very competitive environment. You can hire Dorte for a campaign, but I did not want her to go through the hardships of the runway game while still in school. She is 16 and should have a long career.” Somehow, this new approach paid off. When the phone did ring for Dorte, it was from Prada’s New York Office asking her to do the campaign.

MIAMI NICE Words — Stinne Jensen

The SS12 South Pastel Beach Collection, which showed Thursday at noon, was divided into two coloration opposites: The first part consisted of dark, grey-tone cocktail dresses, stylish jackets and chic shirtand-shorts sets. Smart knots on the dresses and pants made the silhouette flattering for everyone, and Wackerhaus’s signature use of lace was also present in a few well-chosen styles. The look was cool, clean and clever. Part two overflowed with pretty ice cream pastels such a yellow, pink, blue and turquoise, and had a livelier feel to it. The Miami South Beach inspiration — also present in the beach-like runway cover and sound of waves — was clear but never entered cliché territory. Among the highlights were the free-flowing full length, two-tones dresses and the humorous flamingo-printed jumpsuits. The smiling long-limbed beach babes parading the collection made every style look wearable — even to us mere mortals. In fact, every style looked chic with that Scandinavian understated simplicity, without a trace of boredom.

NEW LOOK – DIFFERENT ORDER Words — Rikke Dyrholm

Last night in the heart of Copenhagen, the new head of design at Bruuns Bazaar, Rebekka Bay, showed why she is the new leading lady at the label. To the tunes of Nancy Sinatra song This girl is leaving you behind, she presented her contribution to the iconic fashion brand. Both the men’s and women’s collections revealed a keenness for sport and Japonism culture. Focusing on graphic daily wear that featured minimalistic traits in company with Bruuns Bazaar trademarks, including classic tailored trousers, chinos, shirts, feminine dresses and traditional suits, the collection appeared safe and attainable. Boxy dresses with dropped waistlines and split necklines, indicated, along with the collection’s thin knitted shirts with bottom details and color blocking garments, that Bay has borrowed from her years at Cos – which adds to the brand a refreshing sporty touch with a feel of modern chic. The colors were held in a proper Bruuns Bazaar spirit, presenting a mix of navy blue, khaki, camel, white, grey, black — and fluorescent peach as a standout. All of which were exhibited a luxurious yet downplayed quality. Expectations for the new Bruuns Bazaar were high. The big hand of applause at the end of the show proved that they had been met.

The ballroom at Nimb was the perfect setting for veteran designer Stasia, as she hosted clients and celebrities with an intimate dinner prior to her show, topped by leggy Danish Minister of Employment Inger Støjberg. Dessert came in the form of dresses for all occasions after five o’clock. For decades, Stasia has been the preferred dressmaker for weddings, balls and big dinner parties, always delivering the perfect fit and a personal interpretation of current fashions. Lace has been a staple throughout her career, and being on the height of fashion, she took the delicate weave to new grounds: a Barbarella-inspired 60s jumpsuit, a short backless cocktail dress, a softly tailored rose satin dress with a loosely cut lace overskirt, and contrasting black lace over ivory and powder satin underdresses. Stasia proved she also masters chiffon, lovely in a moss jumpsuit, a fuchsia one-shoulder dress and a grey goddess dress. And for the woman shy of showing too much skin, a midnight blue longsleeved satin dress, reminiscent of Hollywood-divas, offered glamour in the modern, minimalistic way.

Design graduate shows are always a great platform for new talents to present their designs and for the rest of us to see the work of their creative minds. Yesterday, ten graduates of the design school at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts (Danmarks Designskole) showed their vision of how Danish fashion should look in the future. The collections span over a broad variety of inspiration, from baroque femme fatale lingerie to street-inspired easy wear in bright blue nylon mixed with both bags and necklaces of cork. There were feminine dotted prints and autumn colored knit. Lisa Våglund, one of the new designers with a focus on men’s fashion, showed some really interesting examples of which direction Danish menswear might venture in the future with exciting knitwear, deconstructed pants and jackets, in addition to multifunctional pieces where a white shirt turns into a knitted cardigan, and a greyish piece is a combination of waistcoat and shirt. The design graduate Urd Moll Mundermann showed a humoristic take on next spring’s fashion with textile printing in a vibrant color palette and loose silhouettes. Kamilla Hoffmann presented a modern and classic collection with high-waisted pants, long but casual coats and knit with hound-tooth patterns — all adding a sporty twist. However, the fashion show was not only on the runway: The crowd at City Hall, mainly consisting of co-students from the design school, was just as spectacular and an inspirational sight.

Earlier today, Soulland revealed its new fashion stamp designs for Denmark’s postal service. Working with the postal system has clearly inspired designer Silas Adler for his SS12 collection, combining reds and whites, and interpreting the classic postal uniform and sweater. The theme was softened with prints of roses in either reds and pinks or black and white, which worked well as the most extravagant feature of the new collection. Featuring a beautiful burgundy blazer, trousers with elastic bands, shorts and a reinterpretation of the college and leather jackets from last season, it balanced between keeping house favorites while presenting new features. The shoes were, once again, beautiful, complimenting a collection that promised to be sellable — but still full of surprises.

With one of the biggest international attendances at this Copenhagen Fashion Week so far (V Magazine, Vogue USA, Fantastic Man, bloggermania, etc.), it was a joy to see that the young menswear designer Jean//phillip once again had developed his aesthetics and updated signature looks. The zippers on vests, jackets, trousers and blouses were still there, but the look has been updated with a use of linen, poplin, cashmere and lamb leather. The reference was ancient Japan and the old samurai Ronin, but the new Jean//phillip pieces proved anything but costumey. Rather, it was quite subtle. Slouchy (but still fitted) trousers, high-waisted shorts with belts, beautiful leather pants and jackets, long, flowing cardigans and various tanks, tops and some long shirts made out the collection in black, grey and white. It takes a good designer to give an almost black collection a light feeling, but once again, Jean//phillip proved that he’s developed the craftsmanship it takes to elevate casual clothes into beautiful garments.


A SOUND OF SILENCE Words — Rikke Dyrholm

City Hall was turned into a priory of youthful monks, as debutant fashion designer Magnus Lõppe unveiled a passion for deafening silence and gender bending. The show’s boyish models appeared innocent with glossy, sideparting hair, with the exception of the final model, whose fairly matured look and bald head seemed to represent a kind of religious transition. Lõppe presented a clean yet complex collection with female traits like knee-long layered shirts and jackets, capes, tight knits and asymmetrical fine points combined with classics-inspired tailored menswear. This gender-bending dichotomy was echoed by the show’s balance between unlikely moods — beauty and emptiness. The color scale demonstrated a fondness for darkness, structured in white, grey, black and navy shades. Details showed a clean structure with nods to sculpturing and architecture in this cleancut and rigorously designed debut collection.

The Norwegian designer Veronica B. Vallenes, who last season won the Max Factor Talent New Award, showed her Spring/Summer 2011 collection yesterday at the beautiful venue of the exclusive Nimb hotel. With a focus on clean lines and simple silhouettes, the designs showed a beautiful collection, moving the designer away from harsh materials and towards a more lively and sophisticated universe still true to the powerful woman evident in her collections. Except from black and splashes of cobalt blue, the color palette was muted and consisted of mouse grey, pistachio, beige, and pale peach, giving the collection an exclusive spring feel. Easily draped were the oversize jackets mixed with tight shorts; other noteworthy items included Vallenes’s long dresses with delicate details and her slim dresses over tight pants. It was a collection that honored the power of simplicity, without going dull.

A RIDE IN THE GOYA BALLOON Words — Stinne Jensen

Photo — Sacha Maric

Air balloons and Paris in the early 1900s were stated as inspiration for the SS12 ‘La Ballon Imaginary’ collection that overflowed with classic Goya styles and her quirky yet beautiful color combinations. As always, Goya delivered super feminine clothes that never fail to tease a girl’s innermost desire to look pretty, girly and cool. The collection offered everything from flimsy daytime dresses, soft pants and cozy cardigans, to glitzy gold evening dresses and a lot of elegant jumpsuits. Soft candy-floss colors — peach, rosy, champagne — were mixed with cool grey, cerise, black and gold, all integrated into the print-story of old photographs, roses and feathers, or used monochromatically. Sequin balloon applications and long gold fringes stood out from the mold, but it was all very Goya. In fact, it looked like Stine Goya herself (minus her pregnant stomach) strutted down the runway again and again, as the girls all wore red wigs with low bangs and cat eyes reminiscent of the designer’s appearance. A few figure-hugging jersey dresses and skirts brought some newness, as did the great collection of two-toned shoe with high gold soles. Stine Goya has an ability to create clothing with a strong design identity, and one might ask, ‘why change something that works’? But it feels nice to fall deeper into Goya’s universe of playful elegance and super feminine essence.

After a short break from Copenhagen Fashion Week, Designers Remix returned to an expectant audience. In collaboration with the new designer beer Copen*hagen, the show took place under an installation of hanging robes at the ‘Ny Tap’ at Carlsberg, which worked well with the long lines of the collection. As always, designer Charlotte Eskildsen showed a minimalistic yet complex collection of wardrobe essentials, focusing on dresses and suits. The overall silhouette was tall and slender, mixed with architectonic details, mostly on shoulders. Her usual play with asymmetry, supple draping and tailoring were very present, and so were the many styles suitable for both day- and nighttime. In particular, the excquisitely draped, sculpted dresses in either bright yellow or tan are worth noticing. Colors were kept safe in black, white, tan and dark blue, with a small number of styles in bubblegum pastels and a refreshing splash of neon yellow. Only a few styles had more than one color, giving the whole collection a very calm and sophisticated look. Only the tallest of models strutted down the runway, resembling strong Helmut Newton women with their long legs, tight ponytails and strong gaze. Eskildsen is continuously refining her style and perfecting the art of the dress. Although this collection seemed to show less dresses than usual, Eskildsen’s way of rethinking her own style did not disappoint.

PRINT MY DREAM Words — Rikke Dyrholm Photo — Sacha Maric

The Royal Danish Academy of Music set the mood for this different and refreshing event, which brought back naïve and innocent childhood dreams. As the brand name Tabernacle Twins suggests, the models appeared on stage in pairs, occasionally dressed similarly while moving symmetrically. Tabernacle Twins introduced a universe that harmonized casual girliness with pastel patchwork chaos, and the result was both elegant and humorous. Besides collared dresses and bottomed playsuits, the collection sported shorts, billowy dresses and short blazers with cropped sleeves, spiced up with asymmetrical features, ruffles and braids. Further, the collection exposed a vibrant play with prints, coupled with a pastel-oriented color scale. The garments were diverse both in expression and function – balancing between girly carnival and classic feminine. Tabernacle Twins offer a cheerful journey through colorful moods.


NAVAJO PRINCESS Words — Elsebeth Mouritzen

The sandbox runway in the courtyard of the Munthe plus Simonsen flagship store in central Copenhagen made sense as a venue when Danish supermodel Louise Pedersen entered in a happy, post-Woodstock spirit — with clothes to match. Always fond of ethnic influences, Naja Munthe had turned her eye to the West and interpreted the current craze for all things Native American in a collection of casual clothes still reflecting her strong identity. Knee-high boots with leather fringes underlined the inspiration, which was carried out with lots of long-tiered skirts and dresses in tie-dye and colors of a burning New Mexico sunset combined with earthy desert hues. As an antidote to the romance, Munthe offered some sexy chic in well-cut denim shorts with silver buckles in the seams, short fitted leather jackets and flattering slim pants. Everything accessorized with hip-hugging concha leather belts to add a bit of edge.

LOOK OF THE DAY BY MAX FACTOR Words — Mikkel Hyldebrandt

Photo — Simon B. Mørch

Show — Stine Goya

THE PRETTY ONES THE MAKE UP The inspiration for today’s look is taken from the overall color scheme of the new Stine Goya collection, which means focusing mainly on delicate shades of brown and orange. It is all about elegant coloring and lots of texture as if the skin, eyes and mouth are veiled in the same fabrics present in the collection. Eyebrows have been subtly brushed with color, eyes have hints of golden and pink shades, cheeks are barely blushed — and the lips are delectably glossed. The soft tone-in-tone colors make the look elegant with a feminine strength which rules out any girlish cuteness. These are confident women. They are the pretty ones. THE HAIR All the models wear hairpieces or wigs to duplicate designer Stine Goya’s own hair and color — a beautiful shoulder-length shade of deep copper red. To replicate the exact same shade of red, we recommend that you visit your local Wella hair colorist for the best result. And that you blow lots of volume and bounce into the hair using a blow dryer, a big round brush and loads of amplifying mousse. KEY PRODUCTS Max Factor Xperience Weightless Foundation Max Factor Eye Brow Pencil, nr 02 Hazel Max Factor Colour Perfection Duo Eyeshadow, Dawning Gold nr. 425 Max Factor Masterpiece Max Mascara, black Max Factor Vibrant Curve Effect Lip Gloss, Bubbly nr. 05 Wella Professionals Natural Volume Styling Mousse

In the fashion business there’s no such thing as fashionably late. Our local expertise, customs clearance experience and international network are unparalleled. That’s why when it comes to express shipping, we’re the International Specialists. And why, if you’re a company, small business or individual, we’re the perfect partner to help drive your business into more markets around the world than anyone else. That‘s the Speed of Yellow.



LIGHTWEIGHT FEEL Yeah right, I hear you say... a lot of women have a love-hate relationship to their mascaras: on one side, we want fuller, sexier and more glamorous lashes – on the other side we don’t like the heavy, sticky feeling that most volumizing mascaras can give...



If the above statement sounds familiar, you’ll love the new Xperience Volumising Mascara from Max Factor. Thanks to the mousse effect formula and the brush, you experience an effortless application resulting in stunning, full lashes with 3x the volume – but still feel light, lifted and flexible.

Xperience is a new range of complementary products from Max Factor also including a weightless foundation with jojoba and a luxurious gloss balm with mango and shea butter. The common denominator is flawless look with a level of lightweight luxury that you can hardly find even in more prestigious brands...


Mina Ingerslev, responsible makeup-artist for Max Factor

NATURAL BEAUTY ACCORDING MINA “Make-up should never transform you into someone else – it should merely enhance your natural beauty. The key is to keep it simple – use the foundation to give your skin a flawless coverage, the mascara to give fuller lashes and a layer of the gloss balm for a touch of subtle, caring colour. Accept your uniqueness and capitalize on it!”
