Copenhagen’s SS22 Outing saw designers tackle key issues in fashion. They did so in a calm, understated but still impactful manner. As designers sought to reduce their carbon footprints by creating smaller collections that incorporate recycled and natural materials, sustainability was a key topic. The conversation also focused on the topic of longevity, with a greater emphasis placed on practicality and wearability of beautiful pieces that can be worn for a lifetime.

A blending of signature minimalism and subtle bohemian influences, the Malene Birger SS22 offering supplied a considered selection of fluid, languid silhouettes rendered in soothing tones and natural textures. Tactility was the key, drawing inspiration from the cosy-focused collection of the previous season. This season, raw and smooth met sleek and sleek as sculptural leathers were layered in raffia, linen, and a soothing palette of cream, beige, and rust.


Fashion for real life outside of lockdown was the premise for Carin Rodebjer’s collection. The collection featured soft watercolour patterns, super-soft textures and subtle military details. The designer was conscious of sustainability and used recycled leather to make the biker jackets.


“Come Rain, Come Shine” explored the unpredictable nature of the climate, which is a timely message for today’s times. It also highlighted how the city’s chaotic behaviour can be a metaphor for everyday life. Lightweight outerwear and apparel could be worn in all weather conditions and were accompanied by waterproof bags and accessories.
