The Copenhagen Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2014 has just concluded, with emphasis on streetwear. This is the largest fashion event in the Nordic region, with more than 50,000 attendees comprised of designers and fashion enthusiasts. Though not as big as its counterparts in Paris, Milan, London, or New York, the Copenhagen Fashion Week is slowly making its way into becoming one of the most interesting events in the fashion industry. Copenhagen veered away from the mainstream by focusing on a laidback and casual style genre: streetwear. It maintained low key and effortless looks on the runway, making this event the most relatable modeling show to date.
We can never have enough trend guides when it comes to streetwear, especially now that it has become an acceptable style not just for hanging out but also for non-corporate working environments. Recently, streetwear has even penetrated establishments like bingo halls. Unlike casinos which have strict dress codes, bingo halls are more relaxed, so you can drop by clad in your casual clothes without looking out of place. Bingo enthusiasts who frequent Copenhagen’s Bodegaer bingo bar as well as the fashionistas in the interactive online community of FoxyBingo agree that playing bingo is more relaxing when you’ve donned streetwear. Besides, bingo is all about fun and entertainment, so why choose uncomfortable evening gowns when doing so?
So if you’re looking for inspirations on streetwear for your fun bingo nights with friends, here are the dominant trends in Copenhagen as reviewed by LadyLux.com:
