Sick of All Things French Girl? Here Are 15 Great Reasons We’re Loving Danish Style

Just in time for Copenhagen Fashion Week.

By: Curranne Labercane

Is it just us, or are Danish brands popping up everywhere? Street style icons Pernille Teisbaek and Trine Kjaer showed us Danish minimalism-meets-feminine flare, then #gannigirls opened up a whole new world of magical pieces for our wardrobes. Next thing we knew, Copenhagen fashion had taken over our Insta. Sure, French-girl style will always have a place in our hearts, but all we can say is we are craving more of this Danish fashion game.

With Copenhagen Fashion Week happening now, here are some of our favorite Danish brands and fashion insiders to track this surging movement.


Model-turned–designer Stine Goya encourages women to express their individuality with playful patterns and a muted palette. Think tailored silks, illustrated bombers, sophisticated scarves—and this just in…glittery-soled sneakers to pair with the perfect pantsuit.


This Faucher pullover (hand-knitted by Tuscan artisans) had us drooling the second it came out, so we can’t wait to see what’s in store for SS18. Husband-and-wife duo Ditte and Nicolaj Reffstrup have made Ganni a beloved brand with *the* most memorable items for everyday wear.


Karl-Oskar Olsen and Brian SS Jensen’s label is known for its collabs—with sportswear (Champion, adidas, and Nike), DJs, and tattoo artist FUZI UVTPK. The lifestyle brand started out as a limited-edition t-shirt label and now features quality denim and a full range of Scandi streetwear essentials.


Barbara Potts and Catherine Saks got us talking about fur even in the middle of summer. We’re especially in love with the Febbe and its mint-colored fur collar (officially added to our winter wish list!). Their colorful take on an old classic has been making the rounds on fashion sets both in and outside Denmark.


Israeli-Danish designer Orit Elhanati produces handmade necklaces, bracelets, rings, and “earsticks.” Inspired by her grandmother’s gold jewelry, she mixes Middle Eastern aesthetic, Scandinavian shapes, and raw yellow gold to form these highly covetable works of art.
