Bast Magazine: Have you ever been invited to a futuristic disco-party, where the dress-code was: More is more? This season Moonspoon Saloon invited us into their quirky, colorful universe of strong creatures demanding our attention. And they did great! With great exaggeration the models worked their way down the runway wearing glittery buffalos and 70´s inspired plateau-boots… The first part of the collection was a great mixture of materials, colors and print, making the impression a bit confusing. Lucking the ends met towards the end of the show: geometrical, metallic pieces and jackets of gold knit and black shiny latex – pieces we could see ourselves wearing on a warm Summer-night where things need to be stirred up a bit. Check it out, get inspired – run away and join the circus! Read more (Source: Bast Magazine.com)

Cover: Efter en kollaboration sidste år er den danske kunstner Evren Tekinoktay nu gået fuldt ind i Moonspoon Saloon sammen med Sara Sachs, og sammen har de sparet på gøgleriet og skruet op for moden, hvilket klæder den farverige inspiration, der trækker linjer til David Bowies Ziggy Stardust figur med farverige heldragter, glitrende plateausko, og et nærmest orientalsk formsprog i store shiny overflader… Det lover godt for en fremtid, hvor Moonspoon Saloon måske for alvor får markeret sig som et brugbart mærke, der kan langt mere end at være scenetøj.

About the Designer: FREYA DALSJØ provokes the establishment with an artistic and architectural approach to fashion. Her signature is the beauty in the balance between contrasts; materials, textures, colours & emotions. Read more (Source: Copenhagen Fashion Week)

MUUSINGS: The SS14 collection was a surprisingly distinct change of style for the designer, a break from her previous collections of strong, avante-garde silhouettes and combinations of neoprene and leather. This season’s show comprised of delicate, architectural pieces in contrasting materials of mesh and silk with accents of brightly dyed springbok fur. The simplistic pieces comprising of long, flowing robes and deeply cut ankle length dresses were more relaxed than her previous collections, but retained the disctivice sportswear inspired shape and feeling. Worth an extra glance were the eye-catching flat sandals dramatically accented with fluffy springbok fur. In an unusual move for a runway show with so many pieces, Freja used only three models on the catwalk, one of which was model and notable it-girl Lindsey Wixson. A designer who is not afraid to mix it up and subvert expectations, is definitely on our ones to watch list! Read more (Source: blog.muuse.com)

Nordic Style Magazine: ..For the season of Spring/Summer 2014, the designer switched to luxurious and casual style. The collection is built on delicacy, silk and fur. The color combinations of the pieces are deeply unique and have an architectural look, being combination of green, brown, blue and grey. The collection designed for the next summer season has a floating atmosphere having deeply cut long garments with same-sized robes. But the designer remained true to her inspiration by taking elements from sportswear… Read more (Source: Nordic Style Mag.com)

Sabine Poupinel.dk: … The collection was primarily jackets, kimonos and fluttering dresses. The silhouettes were super simple but what made ​​it awesome was her colour understanding. It reminiscent in many ways of colour experiments from BAUHAUS. Her collection was really nice, but it was very far from what she have shown before – it was a little difficult to see the tread from her first two collections. Read more (Source: sabinepoupinel.dk)

Capsule Show.com: She has previously shown an incredible – and award-winning – talent for creating flamboyant sculpted clothing in fur and leather, but this season she surprised everyone with something completely different. Kimonos and floating dresses in colors and geometric patterns that made you think Soulland wasn’t the only brand this year to have found inspiration from Bauhaus. Read more (Source: capsuleshow.com)

In Fur Magazine: Claire Beermann, writer for German Vogue.de, states:
“Danish designers just know how to add a stroke of genius to the Scandinavian simplicity. The broad mix of different styles from sporty chic at Wood Wood to fresh elegance at Freya Dalsjø proves that Copenhagen definitely has a scene worth to watch.” Read more (Source: infurmag.com)

Feathers And Everything.blogspot: With supermodel Lindsey Wixon opening the show, the trio of catwalkers were seen draped in luxurious silks, spaghetti straps and 90’s influenced deep necklines. The originality in the production of the show was that each of the 3 models piled on layers upon layers of coloured silk gowns throughout the duration of the show, finishing off for the finale in colour blocked oversized robes with a sports-luxe vibe using neoprene detail. I couldn’t help but see reference to the AW13 show by Louis Vuitton in which the looks were full of laid back gowns and silks. This pyjama-like trend is one that has been brewing for a couple of years and designers have been eager to pull it off in a serious and elegant way. In my opinion FREYA DALSJØ has succeeded in this just as well as Marc Jacobs has done for Vuitton. Read more (Source: feathersandeverything.blogspot.dk)

Sound Venue: Showet lagde ud med elegante og overraskende sexede silkekjoler, der ved hver indgang fik et nyt lag over sig. Det var især de kimono-agtige kåber i geometriske farveflader, der overbeviste på catwalken, men også en interessant leg med materialer som neopren, pels og net, der endnu en gang fremhævede Dalsjøs kunnen. Read more (Source: soundvenue.com)

Fashion Forum.dk: Fredag bød – i hvert fald hvis man spørger moderedaktør på Alt for Damerne Line Hindsgaul – på en meget markant overraskelse… “Det var bare så overbevisende. Det, hun plejer at lave, er noget meget tungt og futuristisk, det her var lette silkekåber, der trak referencer til Yves Saint Laurent og til Bauhaus med colorblocking med sølvgrå, mint og en masse andre farver. Hendes farvesammensætning var bare helt vild. Det var superflot.” Read more (Source: Fashion Forum.dk)

FridaHanneGaby: First Look: a long silky dress, in 3 colours. Second Look: same dress with a tricoloured silky coat above. Third Look: same dress with a tricloloured silky coat above and another coloured silky coat above. And the concept worked so well! Read more (Source: fridahannegaby.blogspot.dk)

Fashion Fladen: Lange, asymmetriske silkekjoler blev vist i forskellige afskygninger, hvorefter showet tog en drejning, og viste kåbe-lignende slå-om-kjoler der til forveksling mindede om noget kampsports-udøveres har på efter endt gerning. Freya Dalsjø bevidste endnu en gang, at hun er dygtig til at arbejde med forskellige materialer, og forenede således smukt pels og silke. Farvesammensætningen fungerede ligeledes rigtig flot, og dannede kontraster i rektangler a la Mondrian… Kollektionen var ganske vidst mere anvendelig end hvad den unge designer hidtil har præsteret, men Freya Dalsjø er og forbliver en pige som designer med hjertet og ikke nødvendigvis tænker på, hvordan passionen for design kombineres med cool business. Et skridt er dog nået for designeren i retning af, at nå ud til forbrugerne til trods for, at de smukke silkekjoler overvejende klæder en ung og slank piges krop. Read more (Source: fashionfladen.dk)

V Magazine: The standout womens wear show today was an impressive Freya Dalsjø, which I say was impressive for a few reasons. First, in-demand model Lindsey Wixson walked, and second, she walked many times, given the structure of the show: Models had to layer on garments, as they were in keeping with the Marc Jacobs/Louis Vuitton/Prada recent trend of easy dressing for the home… Silk nightgowns, robes and Céline-like fur-lined sandals. One important part of CPHFW to note is that most of the collections are very wearable, and this albeit highly luxurious one was no exception. Read more (Source: vmagazine.com)

About the Designer: BARBARA I GONGINI is pushing boundaries in ethical fashion. The collections – androgynous, futuristic and simplistic with subtle intricacies – bears no signs of compromising style for the sake of sustainability. The collections are not seasonal in nature but rather numerical, where the design is of continuous progress and is constantly evolving.Barbara´s Nordic roots are evident in her uncomplicated designs and largely monochromatic shades. Read more (Source: Copenhagen Fashion Week)

Nordic Style Magazine: The Barbara Í Gongini collection for the season of Spring/Summer 2014 is built on interactivity between the wearer and the garments and on the thought that deconstruction ends up in composure. With this thinking, the designer created pieces with combined layering that can be detachable for more deconstructed shapes. During the fashion show, the starting point was the menswear collection, continuing with the womenswear looks, where the climax of the catwalk had a model standing and every model that came out after that her put on her a piece of jacket that would fit perfectly on top of another one… All together, the fashion show had this foggy, explorational, overseas atmosphere wrapped around the garments, asymmetry, multi layering and long silhouettes being the main characters of this collection. Read more (Source: Nordic Style Magazine)

MUUSINGS: Designer Barbara i Gongini, who was born in the Faroe Islands, strives to develop womenswear and menswear that is minimalistic, androgynous and sustainable, yet at the same time wearable… Tulle pieces were merged with the universe of sound, which has inspired her SS14 collection. Read more (Source:blog.muuse.com)

GB Times: Traditionally, the collections are based on a conceptual approach combined with bold experiments with forms and shapes. BARBARA’s collections – androgynous, futuristic and simplistic – are not seasonal in nature and aimed to a broad audience, regardless the sex and age. Read more (Source: gbtimes.com)

Danish Design & Architecture Initiative: The collection was presented in a subtle, monochrome hue with an impressive variety of lush layers and intricate textures, and the collection’s industrial concept was manifested by opulent leathers, stern linens, light silks, and translucent gauze mimicking structural decomposition and disintegration. With this collection BARBARA Í GONGINI proves once again that she masters the balance between a strong concept and the avant-garde. Read more (Source: ddai.dk)

Trend Sales Magazine: Der er ingen dansk (færøsk) designer som Barbara I Gongini der formår at skabe et helt specielt univers af avantgarde mystik og mørke… Til musik af færøske lyddesigner ORKA, svævede androgyne modeller ned af catwalken i lag-på-lag styles der hver udgjorde små kunstværker i sig selv. Skulpturelle platform sko og vilde headpieces af tyld og stof ledte tankerne mod outer space og gjorde looksne helt utrolig fascinerende. Read more (Source: magazine.trendsales.dk)

55Factory: Her avant-garde style draws me into her wicked universe of freaks and savage beauties. The collections are kept monochrome but the details being in the extraordinary layering. The menswear was a mix of simple sporty pieces and thin knit for layering. The women’s wear started of with a powerful tulle outfit and went into almost spider web looking knit… The finale however was different where a nearly bare model was dressed by other models on the runway in 5 different pieces to create a strong tailored layered look that showed a slightly more mature and considered styling. Read more (Source: 55factory.net)

Bast Magazine: First shown was her mens collection. A full outfit in a blinding crisp white opened the show, followed by strong creations in coal-black and dusty greys. With black eyeliner and leather helmets, a string of strong yet androgynous creations were shown, followed by a very dramatic and theatrical entrance by the first female model. In a huge black tulle creation, she very dramatically stopped on the middel of the runway, posing as if the heavy beats were tearing her apart. A chill spread through-out the audience. Cross-body drapings, bare-backed dresses and enormous tulle-headpieces. Shiny leather, bare skin and black lips. While the Summer was heating up the city outside the great doors of the city hall, we were held hostage inside by Barbaras black poetry. Read more (Source: Bast Magazine)

Fashion Fladen: Farverne var holdt i sort, hvid og grå og blandingen af de bløde og hårde materiale, skabte en helhed og levede meget op til forventningen. Overraskelsen kom dog, da mændene havde forladt catwalken til fordel for kvinderne, hvor store headpieces og læder-masker nærmest forberedte os på den krig der vil bryde ud mellem landets fashionistaer, når tøjet rammer butikkerne og alle vil have fingrende i det. Alt i alt en kollektion der virkelig er med til at høje modeugens standard og skaber wearable couture. Read more (Source: fashionfladen.dk)

Cover: Lydtapetet var dunkelt og dystert, og det var som at se underverdenens kreaturer stige op til overfladen, da den færøske avantgardedesigner løftede sløret for sin sommerkollektion og på ny demonstrerede sin skarpe sans for at eksperimentere med materialer. Read more (Source: Cover.dk)

Style.com: I have always favored Barbara í Gongini’s universe for its twisted darkness and conceptuality, because she does it so well. This season, however, the show was less conceptual, giving way for the design to shine on its own—and shine it did. The collection—presented strictly in white, gray, and black—was well-designed and cohesive… Read more (Source: style.com)

Aniston.dk: Forår- og sommer 2014 kollektion i et gennemgående mørkt, feminint og avantgarde univers.GALLERI» Se alle 20 billeder i galleriet her!Modeugens tredje, og for vores vedkommende også sidste, dag blev bl.a. rundet af med et overdådigt og teater-agtigt modeshow fra det dystre og avantgarde univers, der kendetegner designeren Barbara I Gongini. Her blev vi først overrasket af Barbara I Gonginis præsentation af den kommende herrekollektionen, som i en elegant, atypisk og spektakulær sceneoptræden gled over i det velkendte, mørke og androgyne univers. Den mindre herrekollektionen blev afløst af damekollektionen, som ligeledes blev fremvist i en lidt atypisk catwalk-koreografi, idet modellerne blandt andet hjalp hinanden i lag-på-lag designs på catwalken.

About the Designer: The Copenhagen-based Norwegian designer Veronica B. Vallenes has established a distinct signature expression, situated somewhere between classic Nordic simplicity and glossy Parisian elegance. Her effortlessly sexy womenswear is fast gaining the eye of international press and costumers. Read more (Source: Copenhagen Fashion Week)

Nordic Style Magazine: With focus on the creation of comfortable pieces that fit fabulously, the collection has elegant casual summer look written all over it… The material choice consists of silk combined with ecological fabrics like bamboo, organic cotton and cashmere. The jewelry from Norwegian Bjørg was the perfect match with Veronica’s collection giving an edgy look to the outfits, yet still keeping the traditional Scandinavian minimal style. Read more (Source: nordicstylemag.com)

Cover: Kollektion Som et strøg med en fjer falder Veronica B Vallenes’ silkekreationer helt blødt over kvindekroppen, men hvor hun før har arbejdet med draperinger, er der denne fokus på rene flader skåret på langs, så silken falder tung og lige ned. Veronica B Vallenes designer tøj til voksne kvinder, som ikke ønsker at flashe hud, men som er stolte af deres kroppe og ikke er bange for at lade kroppens konturer stå klart under tekstilerne. Og så er hun dygtig til med små greb at skabe et nyt udtryk… Read more (Source: Cover.dk)

To (literally) top it all off, the collection was styled with Bjørg Jewellery that made my head spin… Read more (Source: wearethesomethings.com)

Sound Venue: Veronica B. Vallenes er dygtig til silke. Derfor er den norskfødte designer altid stærktest med sine sommerkollektioner, og det var da også en slags definitionen på sommer der blev vist på catwalken under modeugen da designeren viste sine feminine kreationer… Veronica B. Vallenes laver pænt tøj. Men det larmer ikke særlig meget og selvom Vernoicas æstetik ikke fejler det mindste bliver hendes kollektioner desværre blive lidt ensformigt i længden. Der er både lange kåber, badetøj og kjoler og silketoppe og selvom materialer og snit holder kollektionen sammen mangler der en tydelig inspiration for at det ikke bliver kedeligt. Read more (Source: Sound Venue.com)

Eurowoman Mobile: Veronica B. Vallenes’ sommer er let, brugbar, easy going med et skævt twist, som fx asymmetriske snit, bare skuldre, print og store statement smykker. Tøjet er flot og anvendeligt, og man kan let se de forskellige styles integreret og brugt med ens eksisterende garderobe, hvilket gør tøjet for Veronica B. Vallens til en virkelig god investering.

Nordic Style Magazine: For the Spring/Summer 2014 season, Designers Remix presented a collection inspired by the sounds of the ocean and the feeling of being under water for which the location of the new aquarium building, Den Blå Planet, was perfect match.

The talented trio consisting of Lotte Bank Nielsen, Karl Oskar Olsen, and Brian Jensen has been enticing the international fashion crowd for the past ten years, all while influencing a new wave of Danish fashion. The Spring ’14 campaign images define Danish cool. Read more (Source: style.com)

Euroman: …Der er flere steder i kollektionen inspiration fra sportens verden med både tracktoppe og løbe-/cykelinspirerede tights, der blev båret under løsere shorts. Wood Wood har med fin succes udviklet og raffineret deres prints de seneste sæsoner. Som modvægt til de mere kulørte indslag fandtes også fremragende two-tone elementer som kraftige T-shirts og suit-pants, der skabte en fin balance og fuldendte en flot kollektion.

Cover: Der går lige sex måneder endnu, før vi kommer til at se den nye chefdesigner Lene Borggaards nye visioner for Bruuns Bazaar blive foldet ud, men i går aftes var det som om, at hun lige havde nået at drysse lidt sex udover kollektion, der viderførte de sidste par års skarpe minimalisme.En sort trenchcoat med gylden lynlås opsummerede stemningen fint: det kan godt være at jeg er skarp i kanten, men du kan også lyne mig op, så jeg viser lidt hud… Read more (Source: Cover.dk)

Euroman: …Modsat kutymen for farverige forårskollektioner bød farvepaletten hos Bruuns Bazaar på få røde farvedryp udover koncentrationen af marineblå-, kaki-, hvide- og grå toner. Med næsten 20 års erfaring udi skandinaviske mænds præferencer lader Bruuns Bazaar til selvsikkert at stole på klassikernes evige berettigelse. Read more (Source: Euroman.dk)

Style.com: Wearable, minimalistic pieces in soft colors and delicate prints were on the catwalk of Bruuns Bazaar—the label recently changed creative direction, which will be in full effect by next season… Read more (Source: style.com)

Sound Venue: Tøjet, der ved første øjekast kan virke enormt simpelt, bar på en hel række finurlige detaljer, der gør, at Bruuns Bazaars designs skiller sig ud fra den brede, minimalistiske masse. Skjortekjoler var bundet med diskrete sløjfer i ryggen, jakker og nederdele havde velplacerede lynlåsdetaljer, og sæt i matchende print og farver var så ubesværet sat sammen, at de efterlod et ønske om mere af samme, hvilket ikke er en dårlig ting blandt modeshows, der kan have hang til at vise for meget af det hele… Read more (Source: Sound Venue.com)

Berlingske: Det var simpelthen svært ikke at tænke, at det var meget mere snak end det var noget som helst andet, og jo jo , der er rigtigt fint at være inspireret og også at slå sig løs og virkeligt opleve verden, før man laver en kollektion, men det kan virke fjollet, når man så sender ret simpelt tøj på podiet? Måske gør man sig selv en bjørnetjeneste ved at hælde så mange ord over noget ret simpelt tøj? Måske skulle man lade det tale for sig selv. Og så til klunset… Read more (Source: www.b.dk)

Blame It on Fashion: Artists and architects are a constant inspiration to Bruuns Bazaar and for the SS14 collection the inspiration comes from a group of German architects that challenged traditional construction with living plants under the term Baubotanic.The result is refreshing, feminine and effortless – and I love it. The printed shorts-set, the perfect striped shirt, the suede pants with the matching top and of course all the pretty floral prints – if this is what awaits us next season I can’t wait… Read more (Source: blameitonfashion.freshnet.com)

The Fashion Spot: An inherently minimalistic and contemporary brand with clean lines, neat styling and lack of details, and the SS14 collection was no exception, but the introduction of floral patterns, sports materials such as jersey and embroidery moved the brand in a new direction while remaining true to its identity. Inspiration came from artists and architects working with botanical motives and materials such as Ferdinand Ludwig’s Baubotanic Tower and the contradiction between using nature, but sculpting and manipulating it into minimalistic shapes, was apparent in the entire collection… Read more (Source: thefashionspot.com)

Cover: Det var flirtende, sensuelt og anvendeligt tøj til selvstændige kreative erhvervskvinder med femme fatale attitude, og et (jetset) liv på farten, som kræver gennemførte outfits til hverdag såvel som på rejse eller til fest… Read more (Source: Cover.dk)

BT: Ved Mi-No-Ros debut-show på Nimb i København indtog berømte og berygtede kvinder catwalken til stor moro for Kronprinsessen. Read more (Source: bt.dk)

Berlingske: Jeg havde troet, at Mi-no-ro ville blive årets toppinlige oplevelse, da rygterne gik, at designeren Mikael Kristensen, der har en fortid hos COS og for nylig også som læderdesigner for Birger Christensen ville vise sin anden kollektion under mærket Mi-no-ro på kendte kvinder… Det er ikke tøj, der kommer til at ændre verdenshistorien. Det er ikke tøj, man vil referere tilbage til, når man om 50 år på Designmuseum Danmark (og gid man så har lavet navnet om igen, magen til mundurethed!) skal skrive dansk modes historie i 2010’erne, for det rykkede ikke moden nogle steder hen, men det var velfungerende, velsiddende, og rammer det ikke sin målgruppe – de fleste af Berlingskes læsende damer f.eks. – klokkeklart, lover jeg at tage et helt år iført pastelfarver og pandebånd.
