Fall 2007 Copenhagen Fashion Week Notebook: Mads Nørgaard

Mads Nørgaard Fall 2007 Runway

By Priyanka Ghosh and Julie Gulfer

Key Takeaways:   The title of this Mads Nørgaard show was Speak Up, and the theme was that “what you wear should support you in your ways and beliefs.”  This 80s and 90s inspired collection stayed true to its theme with a range of provocative statement-making fashion geared towards the liberal-minded urban youth of Europe.  Key trends included:  the mini skirt, logo tees, mock-neck and turtleneck collars, color blocking and off-the-shoulder tops. 
Color Palette:  Three color schemes dominated: (1) Basic black, white and grey, (2)  Bright primary colors of yellow, blue, green and red, and (3) Metallics.

In a fashion week characterized by volume and layering, Mads Nørgaard’s collection felt pointedly slim and sleek.  Straight hip-hugging mini skirts were paired with seamless mock-neck zip jackets.  Snug long-sleeved cotton tunics were slipped on over neon leggings and tights.   Light jersey knit sweatshirts worn off the shoulder were worn with high-waisted patent leather skinny pants. 

Accessories Report:  Leggy models strutted down the runway in short skirts and tight tops, while their necks and heads were covered in the politically charged black hijab veil.   This accessory demanded that the audience acknowledge the undeniable intersection between fashion and politics. Other accessories included leg warmers, ski caps and scarves tied around the neck in a bandit-like fashion. 

What’s Wearable:  We adored the black jersey tunic worn with one sleeve off the shoulder, as the off-the-shoulder style can elongate even the shortest of necks. 

What’s Not Wearable: 
Steer clear of the neon yellow and orange spandex tights, as they are liable to super-size legs and thighs.

    […] 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).
