New York, Paris, Milan, and London may still be the fashion capitals of the world, but there is another international fashion week that has editors and influencers scrambling for front-row seats. Copenhagen, Denmark, has been gaining legions of fans over the past few years for its multitude of talented Scandinavian designers. Labels like Ganni and Saks Potts are at near cult-level status, with major industry players wearing a piece (or three) for their street style snaps. There’s no shortage of envy-inducing Nordic designs, so we found the 21 Danish brands you should know about right now.

Ganni: If you haven’t scooped up one of Ganni’s delectable wrap dresses or slouchy puffer coats or snakeskin slingback heels, we recommend doing so immediately.

By Malene Birger: Gorgeous layering essentials are a must for a Scandinavian brand, and By Malene Birger has some of our favorites, like these Elenasoo leather leggings.

Wood Wood: With divine accessories and avant-garde streetwear, you’ll catch us combing the Wood Wood website for hours this season.

Saks Potts: Started by Barbara Potts and Cathrine Saks, you’ll find this brand’s whimsical furry coats on every editor of note this fall.

Pop Copenhagen: Although this brand is only three years old, their menswear-inspired tailoring and pop-art-era prints are definite must-haves.

Dulong Fine Jewelry: Delicate fine jewelry will never go out of style, which is why we’re partial to Dulong and the founders’ stunning designs.

Won Hundred: A rock ’n’ roll inspired line of staples with plenty of leather and denim pieces is exactly what our closets have been craving.

ArtFusion: This playful brand focuses on sustainable production, which is good for the planet and your wardrobe.

Baum Und Pferdgarten: With plenty of printed dresses and cozy knitwear, this Danish staple is on everyone’s wish list.

Second Female: Reasonably priced statement pieces are a hallmark of label Second Female.

Gestuz: It’s tough to decide what we love from Gestuz more: the wildly printed shoes and accessories, or the feminine-meets-tomboy pieces.

MUNTHE: With its mix of delicate separates and graphic t-shirts, MUNTHE has been a favorite of the fashion set for years.

Samsøe & Samsøe: Streetwear meets Fifth Avenue might be the only way to describe Samsøe & Samsøe, and we need it all right now.

Mads Nørgaard: This brand is core to Copenhagen’s fashion identity, and while they’re known for their striped shirts, they have a full range of styles that we absolutely love.

Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen: You can never have too much jewelry, especially color statement pieces.

Stine Goya: We already know that Danish brands have mastered the maximalist print game, but Stine Goya might just be our favorite.

Cecilie Bahnsen: Season after season of voluminous dresses and sophisticated silhouettes have turned Cecilie Bahnsen into a major player in the fashion industry.

Georg Jensen: With a full range of fine jewelry and posh homegoods, Georg Jensen is a true Scandinavian staple.

Designers Remix: Designer Charlotte Eskildsen is all about making a woman feel beautiful in pieces that she’ll have in her closet forever. We’re adding these wool checked pants to our carts immediately.

Lovechild 1979: Feminine detailing and gorgeous silhouettes make Lovechild 1979 a must-buy brand all year round.
