Han Kjøbenhavn’s COED show will present a collection of dramatic silhouettes and hard shapes mixed with refined craftsmanship techniques. The collection will feature tailoring with contouring metal details, lacing outfits and voluminous coats and dresses. Fabrics as fine Italian cotton, heavy leather and faux fur are expressed in a muted and earthy color palette. Han Kjøbenhavn’s new jewellery line will also be introduced. The mood of the creative content and design will represent the melancholic core of the collection. “The name of the collection is Sweet Melancholia”, tells Jannik Wikkelsø Davidsen. “It’s inspired by my state of mind while creating this collection. It’s the mental ’sweet spot’, where the darkness takes over and you feel enlightened – Where the darkness feels progressive. It’s a creative potent place to be, a place created by the power of the uncontrollable”.
