Saturday afternoon presented the Danish carmakoma his spring-summer collection by 2015 by a ‘ democratic fashion show ‘ – in an open street in the heart of Copenhagen, so everyone could see with both passers-by, neighbors (who actually hung out the Windows) and of course all invited.
There was the hefty rock music with attitude – exactly like the models that showed both kinds, thighs and tattoos. There was a ‘ devil may care’-mood of the show and collection. Here are all allowed. Maybe it was also for this reason, there were many directions in the collection; from lovely broderie anglaise-items and flowers for metallic hotpants as short as panties, from comely tweed and innocent nude for sharp shoulders and plenty of firser details. In other words, carmakoma’s spring offers something for everyone.
Feminine details with edge
What makes that it works with the many directions is that the more romantic elements are held in leash – embroidery on short, sexy shorts and flowers in a sharply-cut suit with side panels. Raw sequins provides a transparent white top edge, like a masculine cut takes the cute out of nude-Tint.
Our favorites are clearly the more feminine figure revealing elements – the flowered suit, the short shorts with lace detail and, not least, the items that are decked out with raw, square sequins.
The collection also featured quite a few firser-inspired styles and patterns. Black and white patterns with bold stripes and especially the little denim collection with kvilt-detail screams 1980 ’ s. With firser average follows unfortunately also often straight up and down clothing – something that rarely robes the forms, carmakoma clothes on. But some of these items still manages to function – because the pattern cheats eyes, as on the black and white dress, where the pattern pulls the eyes onto the middle of the abdomen and marks the waist. Nice thought!
Some of the details of yesterday’s catwalk may seem liiige valid fresh for plus size-women –, such as metallic hotpants and a blondebody as top. But if you look at the wild elements, they can be translated into something more everyday. Think metallic materials elsewhere, view that broad thighs well can be shown forth in the shorter shorts and lace details to consider next spring. Because that is how you should view catwalk fashion – as extreme elements, pointing in a direction, but as you easily can spend on other ways.
