Nordic rawness by Cecilie Bahnsen for FW20

The highlight of Copenhagen Fashion Week, showcasing Fall Winter 2020 was not unexpected, the Copenhagen based designer, Cecilie Bahnsen.

This season Cecilie Bahnsen has been inspired by the Stockholm based artist Martina Hoogland-Ivanow and her work including photography of mesmerising landscapes, captured in some of the most remote and far flung locations, in Siberia and the Kola Peninsula in Russian Lapland.

“It transports me to an emotional and eerie faraway place. One that is both mysterious and dreamy.

I think you could say that Fall/Winter is my ‘Martina Collection’.

Cecilie Bahnsen Fall/Winter 2020 has an aesthetic of earthiness mixed with hints a dreaminess. The colour palette include browns and ivory, the sky-coloured blue to capture true Nordic rawness.

Still in the signature voluminous style we’ve all come to love. Perhaps even more intriguing than ever before; layering and knitwear as well as combining different fabrics and textures, that all come together, so beautifully.

Worth taking a note of is that this season, Cecilie Bahnsen is one of several high end brands that have collaborated with British luxury heritage brand Mackintosh. Bahnsens’s take on the traditional parka is, simply magnificent.
