Amalie Hove, the innovative mind behind the modern knitwear brand, continues to embrace the label’s distinctive approach of incorporating transparency to revolutionize knitwear, imbuing it with a more alluring and invigorating touch.
Rotate’s SS24 collection by designers Jeanette Madsen and Thora Valdimars can be best defined as a harmonious blend of intricate sophistication and punkish rebellion. The designers drew inspiration from the Nineties fashion scene, where London-based designers fused punk and couture to create a new style.
The collection featured a vibrant array of elements, including vinyl black dresses, corset belts, sequined knickers, oversized hats, and ruffled gowns. This entertaining collection is sure to garner widespread attention on social media platforms, particularly the eveningwear.
Saks Potts hosted a beach-front show, exuding a refreshing blend of nostalgia and innovation, maintaining a playful and vivacious vibe. Keeping in line with the Noughties aesthetic, the show featured slip dresses, neck-tie scarfs, and belt bags, all reimagined with a contemporary twist.
Ganni’s latest show marked the end of the season by tackling a controversial and timely subject – the impact of artificial intelligence (AI). To add to the grandeur, the show featured a captivating appearance by the new-era supermodel Paloma Elsesser.
The influence of AI pervaded every aspect of the show, starting from the initial concept inspired by ChatGPT to a mesmerizing runway adorned with “talking” trees. The stars aligned when Ganni’s creative director, Ditte Reffstrup, crossed paths with the remarkable AI artist, Cecilie Waagner Falkenstrøm, known for her profound and philosophical perspective on AI. Collaborating with Cecilie, the Ganni team gave birth to a Ganni AI specifically for the show, seeking to manifest the spirit of AI in a tangible and organic form. Trees, being powerful symbols of hope and life, emerged as the natural choice to embody this AI presence on the runway.
