Tuesday night of Copenhagen Fashion Week saw potentially one of the most ‘out-there’ collections, presented by HÆRVÆRK. It seemed to pay homage to sustainable fashion, based off the fishing industry, featuring models wearing industrial style rubber gloves, and shoes created out of canvassed plastic. Although this theme was carried out throughout the collection, as the show progressed, more wearable fashion was combined with the statement making pieces.
Set in an industrial style garage, models stomped out to the show-space allowing the clothes to speak for themselves as the constructions were largely masking their faces and shapes. The collection featured colour waves of khaki greens, bright oranges and yellows, leaving the meaning of the styles up to viewer interpretations. Some pieces, however took on a streetwear-esque vibe, in the form of puffer jackets and jersey pullovers in varying colours.
The presentation, sponsored by Monster, certainly made a statement and encourages the emerging theme of sustainable fashion to be considered by the wider audience. As is perhaps not well known, the fashion industry is less than environmentally friendly, and brands that strive against this are making steps towards inspiring others to make important changes to do the same.
