Copenhagen Fashion Week: Highlights (I)

Forget Paris, London and Milan! Stockholm, Berlin and Copenhagen are now the new European fashion centers. The latter one was the home of the Copenhagen Fashion Week festival, held in August, 6th to 9th, which, gathering almost forty fashion labels, made a huge display of the well-known modern-edgy Danish style. Some of the best collections tempered the edge with a feminine appeal.

One of the CFW's highlights is Bibi Ghost, a young Danish designer presenting her second collection at Copenhagen Fashion Week. The label's design aesthetic lies in an atypical mix of playfulness and mature look with unexpected details, of loose volumes and minimalist cuts.

Brilliant garnet ring

Garnet is January's birthstone. A hard, long-lasting, frequently very brilliant stone, it's accessible in lots of colors other than the common deep red, including green, yellow, orange, pink and violet.

Brilliant garnet ring

Garnet comes about in certain shades of red that have been taken for some varieties of ruby. In yellow, it has been mistaken with expensive topaz. In fact, garnets can be found in nearly every color and shade with the exception of blue.Sterling silver is a white, extremely reflective precious metal composed of 925 parts of pure silver and 75 parts alloy, generally copper. Copper gives the silver with enough resistance and wearing qualities, as pure silver is too flexible to be used or worn every day. Sterling silver is used in a wide variety of jewelry for a good-looking elegant look.

Jimmy Choo’s satin sandals

Jimmy Choo’s satin sandals are an excellent model, perfect for a chic party. This is the traditional sandal design that Jimmy Choo and other brands habituated us. Perhaps what I liked most is his precious jewels as decoration assembly in front, using the form of a buckle, which certainly achieves a totally captivating effect. The price is around 770 dollars.

Dienzo's cute & creepy adolescents

I find Rick "Dienzo" Blanco's characters are delightfully charming. Creepy & Cute is what defines Dienzo's style in fine art, this American artist being inspired in creating his acrylic characters by his work for Disney, Mattel and Cartoon Network. His dark and odd young things are meant to intrigue and cause anxiety, also suggesting that we all have a darker side coming to the surface when we are expecting the least.
