Fall 2007 Copenhagen Fashion Week Notebook: Inwear

March 10th, 2007


By Priyanka Ghosh and Julie Gulfer

Key Takeaways:  Inwear’s Autumn 2007 collection explored the dichotomous nature of femininity.  The Inwear woman is strong and sexy sporting menswear that boldly outlines her curves, while soft and sensual wearing sheer blouses and frilly skirts.  Key trends included:  plaid bottoms and outerwear, sweater jackets, laser cut detailing, lace, and geometric patterns.

Color Palette:  Lots of black, along with somber grey, purple, navy and burgundy

  Silhouettes were sculpted and ranged from slim to voluminous.  Precisely tailored power suits created a long and lean look perfect for the office.  Belted knit cardigans were worn over high-waisted pencil skirts with sexy front-center slits.  Evening wear consisted of slinky knee-length sheaths in rich silk and satin along with lace-trimmed 50s style poodle skirt dresses.

Accessories Report:  Patent leather ankle boots, leather shoulder bags with gold buckles and zippers, fingerless biker gloves, fishnet stockings, striped knit scarves and chunky art deco necklaces.

What’s Wearable:  This collection produced some basic knits that every woman should own: the burgundy keyhole shirt, the heather grey belted cardigan and the crème colored cowl neck sweater. We also adored the navy double-breasted trench dress because of its extreme versatility and cute oversized buttons.  

What’s Not Wearable:  Most of this collection was very wearable, though we would stay away from some of the short-short printed boy shorts that cling to the caboose and look like underwear.

    […] March 11th, 2007 Fall 2007 in Scandinavia is all about feminine fabrics and details.  Satin, silk, and sheer fabrics are combined with oodles of lace, ruffles and bows.  Silhouettes tended towards the voluminous but are controlled through the use of belts, cinching and cuffs.  Dark, subdued tones rule the runway complementing the usual suspects of black, white and gray.   SILHOUETTESShort Hemlines Mads Nørgaard, Nur Rock, Stine Goya, Jespine Philbert, Rand JeansControlled VolumeInwear, Rützou, Baum und Pferdgarten, Ivan GrundahlHigh Waisted StylesIvana Helsinki, Gestuz, Dr. Denim, Noa NoaA-line StylesElise Gug, Rützou, Noa Noa, Bitte Kai Rand, AnnhagenHigh Necklines Mads Nørgaard, Inwear, Designer’s Remix, Gestuz, Camilla NorrbackBelted StylesElise Gug, Ivan Grundahl, Sand, Noa Noa, Gentlemen’s Affair, Bruuns BazaarEmpire WaistlinesRützou, Sand, Day Birger et Mikkelsen, Malene Birger, Bitte Kai RandDETAILINGRufflesDesigner’s Remix, Baum und Pferdgarten, Day Birger et Mikkelsen, Malene Birger, Noa NoaCuffed StylesInwear, Rützou, Elise Gug, Sand, Day Birger et MikkelsenBowsElise Gug, Ivana Helsinki, Bruuns Bazaar, Sand, Malene Birger, Gentlemen’s Affair Mirrors Munthe plus Simonsen, RützouEmbroidery Munthe plus Simonsen, Rützou, Day Birger et Mikkelsen, By GrothPuffy SleevesMunthe plus Simonsen, Designer’s Remix, Bruuns Bazaar, Baum und Pferdgarten, Camilla NorrbackPleatsMunthe plus Simonsen, Rützou, Day Birger et Mikkelsen, Malene Birger, By GrothCinched SleevesRützou, Designer’s Remix, Baum und PferdgartenLaceMunthe plus Simonsen, Inwear, Sand, Day Birger et Mikkelsen, By Groth FABRIC & PATTERNPlaid Designer’s Remix, Rand Jeans, Ivan GrundahlGeometric PrintsInwear, Designer’s Remix, Baum und Pferdgarten, Gentlemen’s AffairSatinMunthe plus Simonsen, Inwear, Noa Noa, By Groth, Gentlemen’s AffairStripesMads Nørgaard, Inwear, Noa Noa, Bitte Kai RandFurElise Gug, Dalsgaard, B.A.P, Ivan Grundahl, SandLeather Munthe plus Simonsen, Rützou, Mads Nørgaard, Annhagen, Ivan GrundahlTextured KnitsInwear, Elise Gug, Designer’s Remix, Malene Birger, ThelinMetallic ShineRützou, Mads Nørgaard, Graumann, H.U.G.S by VonrybaSheer FabricsInwear, Day Birger et Mikkelsen, Malene Birger, Noa Noa, Bitte Kai Rand, By GrothGARMENT CLASSIFICATIONSShortsMunthe plus Simonsen, Inwear, Jespine Philbert, Rand Jeans, By Groth Skinny PantsMunthe plus Simonsen, Mads Nørgaard, Rützou, Bruuns BazaarPedal Pushers/Capris Rützou, Inwear, Munthe plus Simonsen, Malene Birger, Noa Noa, By Groth Wrap DressesElise Gug, Rosanna JulieLeggingsMads Nørgaard, Dreams by Isabel Christensen, Cecil Marie Martensen, Noa Noa, Bitte Kai RandLong Tops (e.g. Tunics and Caftans)Munthe plus Simonsen, Inwear, Rützou, Day Birger et Mikkelsen, Malene BirgerWide Leg TrousersRützou, Ivan Grundahl, Robert & Blad, Bruuns Bazaar, Sand, Day Birger et MikkelsenPencil SkirtsInwear, Elise Gug, Dr. DenimACCESSORIESOversized Bags Inwear, Designer’s Remix, Bruuns Bazaar, Ivan Grundahl, Malene BirgerLong GlovesMunthe plus Simonsen, Rützou, Dalsgaard, Ivan Grundahl, Malene BirgerAnkle BootsElise Gug, InwearOversized BeltsBy Petrine L, Bildt & Prior, Malene BirgerSkinny BeltsElise Gug, Sand, Bitte Kai RandLegwarmers Mads Nørgaard, Ivan Grundahl, Noa NoaKnee-length SocksRützou, Bruuns BazaarPictured: Munthe plus Simonsen (top right) and Rützou (middle left).
