A beach-front show where Alana Hadid made her modeling debut, designer Ervin Latimmier hit the runway as his alter-ego drag-queen personality Anna Conda (in lingerie, no latex), and Kim Kardashian posing in front of inflatables; what a week it was.
Hadid, Latimmier, and the rest of the famous, infamous, influencers and onlookers were rabidly checking out fashions at SS24 Copenhagen Fashion Week. First held in 2006, Copenhagen Fashion Week is held twice a year and was the first fashion week to feature and enforce what has been called “sustainability criteria” for its brands, starting three years ago. Presently, at least half of the collections that are presented at SS24 Copenhagen must be crafted from materials that are either recycled or upcycled.
With designer Tress behind the aforementioned beach-front show, a Saks Potts model walking the runway in a suit slotted with real roses attached across in, and A. Roege Hove showcasing see-thru knits of Circulose material there was lots to be seen. As this most recent Forbes article attests, this fashion week presently “sets the standard for Fashion Weeks around the world.”
Not in Copenhagen but certainly just as fashion-conscious and news-making, Kim Kardashian was seen this week for a Fall 2023 campaign for American luxury brand Marc Jacobs. Styled by Alastair Mckimm and photographed by Tyrone Lebon, the campaign, seen in V Magazine, shows the infamous K.K. wearing various Marc Jacobs black and white, polka-dotted ready-to-wear. From a black corset, to a leather mini, and 8-inch platforms, Kim mixes and matches, even accessorizing in some pictures with two new bags from the brand, “The Sack Bag,” and “The Curve Bag.” In some shots Kim is set against big alphabet balloons as well as huge inflatable legs, wearing the same shoes she does in some of the pics.
The big inflatable set pieces behind Kim remind us of when we dressed Katy Perry in an inflatable latex skirt for a Covergirl’s “Plumpify Mascara” commercial. Read that story here.
Imagine what huge inflatable latex set pieces would look like!
From Copenhagen to V Magazine; this is how the week unfolded for some fashion fans.
