MaxJenny at Copenhagen fashion week SS15










































It's a rare treat when MaxJenny puts on a show at Copenhagen fashion week. I was there for her first show in August 2011. Now three years later, she has clearly moved away from her stripey fashion and developed her pixel printed ponchos into something much broader. For ss2015 she shows an impressive collection of garments, including swimwear, in a whole new expression of patterns.

For this season she teamed up with Amsterdam designer Esther Tielemans who contributed with some exquisite prints. These abstract patterns were seen on slinky legging trousers and lose fitting blazers/kimonos. And swimsuits. It was in the latter that I was thoroughly inspired. I have never seen such artful swimsuits and I can already imagine them in magazine editorials.

One can always be sure to get a lovely dose of bold colours from MaxJenny, just like you would with Marimekko, and she certainly did not disappoint. MaxJenny is for colour lovers. She continues to develop her rain ponchos, but has proven she is much more than that.  It was a shame the scheduling coincided with that of Baum und Pferdgarten, as the show deserved a far larger audience. Let's hope her fashion speaks for itself and she'll get the attention she deserves.

My outfit at Copenhagen fashion week

The lace and crocheted trend

As seen on the Copenhagen runways almost a year ago for spring/summer 2014, I am highlighting one trend that made it to the highstreet. Big time.

I remember falling for this lace dress from Baum und Pferdgarten immediately when I saw it on the catwalk. They have it in orange, white and black, and if you're lucky you'll be able to pick one up in the sales.

Lace and crocheted dresses, tops and skirts have been filling the highstreet shelves, from H&M to Zara - so if you like the trend you'll have no problem to clothe yourself from top to toe. The ones below are from H&M and Asos.




Now represented by Pholk, Copenhagen



Apart frommodelling through my own business at christinetongue.net, I am now also proudly represented by the modelling agency Pholk in Copenhagen.

Over the green and yellow fields

I wanted to do a shoot in the beautiful yellow rapeseed fields of southern Sweden, and when I found this dress in a vintage shop everything fell into place. 




New shows coming up

Fashion week is round the corner. On the Danish front, I look forward to Vibskov, Freya Dalsjö, Stine Goya (who didn't have a show last season) and Mohammed Barrech. These are the more artistic and unpredictable Danish designers who are so interesting to follow. (You can read last season's report on Vibskov and Barrech below)

On the more commercial level,what will autumn/winter 2014 look like? Will the pink coats seen from many designers this winter still be popular? And what about all the leopard patterns?




If I can prophesize, I think that tweeds and tartans will have a return. Stella McCartney gave us a taster this a/w, but they didn't really make it to the high street, so why not exchange the leopard patterns for tartans? There is so much potential and fun to be had here. Tweeds have been gone from the scene for a while, and I think their return is long overdue. Let's see in a a couple of month's time what the designer's have in store for us.
