3. day at Copenhagen fashion week Wackerhaus and Ivana Helsinki

on Tuesday, August 31, 2010

Wackerhaus showed some very interesting colours - mustard, dusty rose, faded green whatever you call them. I fell for the sharp edges on blazers and some ninja thematic things in models' hair. And I've always liked when models all come out in finale together.. like one big army. 

Ivana Helsinki was all in nautical theme which isn't anything new but somehow it felt fresh. I would like to spend my next summer in Haapsalu, walking by the sea and wearing these dresses! And the first dress - again, made me like yellow more and more. I liked the idea of shoes made of ropes but I really think that the outcome wasn't the best. By the way the accessories from ropes (belts, bracelets) are pretty DIYable!

3. day at Copenhagen fashion week - Minimarket, THS, Moods of Norway

on Monday, August 30, 2010

Two announcements:
*Because some of my readers requested for it I finally gave up and made a formspring account. Now you can post all your questions there - www.formspring.me/stylehurricane
*Updated my shop! Some new ear cuffs available now, check it out - here.

Back to the fashion week. After S'Nob de Noblesse we had 4 shows in a row by Norwegian designers. First of them was TSH (Tina Steffenakk Hermansen). The first part collection with bright and colourful underwater prints was beautiful but little bit too much for me. Almost tacky. I quite liked the white & red coral print. The huge golden lobster headpieces were fun too.
The sequined black final dress was gorgeous, though the long train looked bit akward, maybe it was jus the model who couldn't handle it.

Moods of Norway showed us some bright and joyful suits for guys and girls;) I like the idea of blue shoe sole.

Then came Minimarket! One of the shows I looked forward the most. Went there with Benjamin and Ida, before the show we coincidentally met With Maja, Elizabeth, Fanny and Mille. This was the best thing that could every happen because we had so much fun later;) 
Minimarket was great, orange have never looked so good before! This was the second show where I noticed some black see-through knits. Acne also has something like this (photo) so it's definitely time to find out my knitting needles again. And did you noticed the shoes! I'm really into those huge wooden platfroms.
