Fall 2007 Copenhagen Fashion Week Notebook: Munthe plus Simonsen

March 11th, 2007

Munthe plus Simonsen Fall 2007 Runway

By Priyanka Ghosh and Julie Gulfer

Key Takeaways:  Munthe plus Simonsen’s use of leather, lace and chiffon made for a collection that exuded urban femininity.   Key trends included: pleated skirts, the china neck collar, luxe sweaters, the military jacket, and ruffles.  And true to their roots, Munthe plus Simonsen featured copious amounts of ethnic detailing and bohemian prints.

Color Palette: 
Can we say blue?  Peacock, navy, indigo, azure and turquoise were complemented by black and charcoal.

Silhouettes:  Big over small: Lacy Renaissance style blouses over black skinny pants in leather and denim and slim knee-length shorts.  Big over big: Airy puffy sleeved caftans over sagging wide leg trousers and calf-length pleated asymmetrical skirts. 

Accessories Report:  Black leather galore—thigh high boots, newsboy caps, long gloves and wide wrap-around belts.  Also of note was the short boy-cut hair on all of the models. 

What’s Wearable: 
We loved the collection of loose flirty tops, from simple monochrome satin blouses to intricately embroidered tunics and caftans.  The subtly tailored floaty fabric flatters women of all shapes.

What’s Not Wearable:  The calf-length pleated skirts in stiff fabrics enlarged the hips and managed to make the lithe models look boxy and frumpy.  And while we liked the relaxed style of the wide leg trousers, we do not recommend sagging them from the hips.

    […] 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).
