Copenhagen Fashion Week announces SS22 line-up
Copenhagen Fashion Week’s return to a physical format for SS22 comes with a strong line-up of labels showing at the event from August 10-13. There will be 38 labels showing, including established names and new talent.
Some of the big attractions include Nordic brands such as Ganni, Stine Goya, Holzweiler, Saks Potts and Marimekko. And there will be a return to the schedule of Han Kjøbenhavn, Helmstedt, Brøgger and Hope.
As many as 30 of the 38 shows will be physical events and both those, plus the remaining digital shows, will be live-streamed on the fashion week’s website.
Other features of the event will include a focus on menswear with a curated selection of brands, including, Schnayderman's, (di)vision, Berner Kühl and Nikolaj Storm Copenhagen. Established names such as Henrik Vibskov, Soulland and Samsøe Samsøe will present both womenswear and menswear.
And this year’s inaugural Talent Slot has been awarded to A Roege Hove, whose contemporary exploration of knitwear and textile manipulation, “imbued with a conscious approach to design, presented a clear indication of a future Nordic design dexterity to the official show committee”. Julie Gilhart, CDO of Tomorrow Ltd and President of Tomorrow Projects, is CFW’s inaugural Talent Mentor offering a mentorship program to A Roege Hove.
Another emerging name, Louise Lyngh Bjerregaard, will also debut at the event and The Royal Danish Academy will present a selection of its MA students' graduate collections.
It’s also interesting that for the first time, CFW has expanded its Show Committee of Nordic leaders to include international figures, “in order to ensure an international eye in the curation of the SS22 schedule”. These International names include Ida Petersson, Fashion Buying Director of Browns Fashion; Angela Koh, Market Editor of New York Times T Magazine; Christopher J. Morency, Editorial Director of Highsnobiety; Dio Kurazawa, Co-Founder of the Bear Scouts; and Tomorrow’s Julie Gilhart.
