As every season, Han Kjøbenhavn knows how to leave his audiences slightly confused, stunned by what they have just seen and questioning, what may come next. For the SS18 collection, Han Kjøbenhavn showed a moody, military-inspired collection with dark colors.
Dark caramel tones, burgundy, and grey are the main colors of Han Kjøbenhavn SS18. With a take on modern military attire, he presented an outstanding selection of daring pieces that will be loved by his loyal followers.
The menswear pieces were showing oversized jackets, long, straight cuts and hoodies. The multiple uses of bags incorporated in the jackets and trousers were as eye-catching as the long thick ropes hanging from the hoodies. A mix of combat colors and velvet showed the idea of bringing military fashion in (almost) everyday streetwear. While the use of velvet and a lot of layering might seem questionable for a spring/summer collection, the weather during Copenhagen Fashion Week agreed with Han Kjøbenhavn to better be safe than sorry.
The womenswear pieces were going in the direction of gender-bending, also some pieces like the beautiful pencil skirt on combat colors showed the idea of bringing typical menswear patterns and cuts into womenswear. A definite eye-catcher was the skirt made out of bags.
Also, no-one was hanged this time during his presentation, the Han Kjøbenhavn SS18 show proved the immense creativity and talent of the Danish design house as much as the importance and value of Scandinavian fashion in the international market.
