Fall 2007 Copenhagen Fashion Week Notebook: Rützou

Rützou Fall 2007 Runway

By Priyanka Ghosh and Julie Gulfer

Key Takeaways:  Rützou’s collection was all about contradictions in silhouettes, colors and detailing.  Strong simple lines merged with layered volume.  Smooth silks and satin combined with beaten wools and basic cottons. Rützou  paired somber muted hues with seductive splashes of bright colors.  Romantic embroidery details were juxtaposed with rebellious leather and stiff metal. 

Color Palette: Army green, ink blue and steel grey black were accented by vivid tones of red, purple and parrot green.

Silhouettes:  Big over small.  Long-sleeved frocks with loosely gathered pleats were worn over capri-length tights or cuffed pedal pushers.  Free flowing peasant tops with wrist length sleeves cinched just below the shoulders were worn over skinny pants.  Tight bolero vests in textured fabrics accompanied A-line tanks.  Details included embroideries, stylized prints, strips of silk and leather, mirrors and metallic accents. 

Accessories Report:
  Platform pumps, elbow length gloves in bold primary colors, and textured knee-length socks.  Long hair ironed straight and paired with an oversized leather headband also dominated the runway.

What’s Wearable:  Cropped bolero vests with mirror and embroidery detailing worn over A-line tanks flatter the bust while hiding a tummy.  We also took note of the long sleeves on the frocks which visually slim and lengthen the arms. 

What’s Not Wearable: 
If Lil’ Kim and Sporty Spice designed a clothing line, their centerpiece might be a pair of wide legged, bright green satin drawstring pants with a shiny white racer stripe down the side.  We’re not fans of this look.  We also thought that the long scarf made entirely of leather gloves was a bit over the top.  Gloves look great on hands.  Let’s keep them there.

    [...] 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).
