Copenhagen Fashion Week's Day Two and we're being whisked away to the shorelines of Charlottenlund by the fashion dynamo Saks Potts. Founders Barbara Potts and Cathrine Saks took us to their childhood summer stomping grounds, where they've known each other since they were five. Talk about a trip down memory lane!
Location and Inspiration
The location isn't just about nostalgia; it's about an aesthetic, a vibe that captures the essence of summer and childhood friendships. The collection played into this, with bikini tops and bottoms (yep, note that as a key trend for next season) styled with shirts, sparkling sequined skirts, vintage silhouette leather jackets, and knitwear crafted by Italian company Oscalito.
Not Just Another Collection
It wasn't all sea and sand. The collection featured Saks Potts' signature ruffle dresses, adored by celebs like Kylie Jenner. And speaking of familiar names, Alana Hadid, older sister of Bella and Gigi, opened the show. Keep your eyes peeled, as she's likely to be a regular face this fashion season.
Waves of Emotions
This collection wasn't just about the clothes; it was about feelings, memories, and a connection to a place. It was about summers spent laughing, running on the beach, and growing up with a best friend by your side. It's a gentle reminder that fashion isn't just fabric and thread – it's about stories, relationships, and the soul.
So next time you're watching a runway show, remember Saks Potts' ode to Charlottenlund. It might just make you think of your childhood summers, and who knows, inspire you to rock a bikini top with a leather jacket. In fashion, after all, anything's possible!
