Copenhagen: CIFF & Revolver Highlights

We recently visited Copenhagen to attend the CIFF and Revolver trade shows to gain insights on what is up and coming for the spring summer 20 season. Scroll down to view a couple of outtakes from men's, women's and kidswear collections.

KEY THEMES



SUSTAINABILITY & UPCYCLING

At both CIFF and Revolver, sustainable fashion was the number one conversation. Many brands showcased transparency in production and displayed a clear manifesto for change. Reduce, reuse and recycle was the key phrase to lead this wave of sustainable production.

WOMEN'S



PISTACHIO

Green in all shades transcends the previous AW season and into the upcoming SS20 season. Pastel pistachio tones with cool mint and jade hues were paired with lilac, peach, white and tonal greens.

SUITING

Suiting remains a key look, particularly the blazer as a key commodity, going into the new SS season. Classic double breasted styles are updated in longer line, more relaxed silhouettes. Seen across key seasonal colour drivers and statement styling.

CHUNKY TRAINERS

Seen in more volumes this season with confirmation of feminine details and applications. Chunky sole runners were seen across all of the footwear brands with each brand offering their version. Key styles featured lacing updates and colour blocking focused on black, pink, white and metallics.

MEN'S



PINE GREEN

Deep saturations as well as laundered diluted tones of green were a popular choice across CIFF and Revolver. Predominantly seen in the casual space across knits, footwear and accessories.

3D EMBROIDERY

3D embroidered graphics, slogans and branding in matte, glossy and lurex applications made a statement across slogans and branding. Embroideries were applied to basic silhouettes, providing a one-up or elevated fashion item.

UTILITY DETAILS

Utility details and silhouettes have grown in popularity with almost every designer or brand providing their version. Patch and cargo pockets were a favoured choice, along with the increased use of dusted hardware details.

KID'S



YELLOWS

Bold primary yellows continued to be a key colour into the summer season across kidswear for both girls and boys. Seen in outerwear, graphic tees and colour blocked sweats with blue and white pairings.

DENIM

Denim commodities were core for most brands with denim commodities, taking up most of the space from jeans and shorts. Jackets were the key items in boyswear, whereas girls show the expanse of dresses, jumpsuits and Bermuda shorts.

SPORTSWEAR

Many brands showcased a more active capsule range with sportswear becoming a key overriding theme. Girlswear was the main area that saw this investment with co-ord legging outfits, windbreakers and sweaters.
