A primer on this week's fresh meat.
Some are a bit unconventional, but you have until next spring to convince your boyfriend to wear them.
Crop tops have been in for spring and summer for the last several seasons--of this, we are certain. One thing we aren't as sold on? The shrunken shirt look on men, a trend that's been (forgive us) cropping up all over the London Men's Fashion Week runway.
The thing we love about lesser-known fashion weeks is that designers aren't afraid to get a little freaky creative on our asses. And Copenhagen's recent fashion week, which wrapped on Saturday, is no exception. Between white-faced models, a presentation set in a gym and a Black Swan-inspired runway show, the week was anything but boring. Oh and the clothes were pretty noteworthy too. Here are our favorite moments, in no particular order.
COPENHAGEN--Astrid Andersen is a Danish menswear designer whose collections are very literally inspired by American athletic and street wear. From the mid to late '90s. A graduate student from London's Royal College of Art, Andersen showed her second collection this week at Copenhagen Fashion Week, set to a hip hop track played on the piano. Though Andersen is white and blond (as is most of Denmark), her models, with the exception of one, were all black, their hair parted and razored into styles most recently seen on Kid n' Play. And these boys were jacked. She showed animal print velour track suits (all unzipped to reveal massive pecs and washboard abs), cropped hooded puffer jackets in bright neons with elbow length puffer gloves to match, mesh sports jerseys (also cropped). Some of the models carried basketballs in gold chain sacks. The show was totally over the top, not to mention completely unexpected, but we heard that Opening Ceremony has picked up some of the collection. Men, will you wear cropped puffer jackets?
