Autumn/Winter 2019 Runway Show
Runway Report HOLZWEILER AW19 at Copenhagen Fashion Week LOG OFF/LOG ON
Everyone was present at HOLZWEILER’s AW19 show in Copenhagen.
HOLZWEILER AW19 is a collection celebrating modern life; how we interact with each other, how we communicate and connect, how we bounce between technology and nature. It’s inspired by balance and the ability to embrace the best of both worlds; to be ON when you want to be on, and OFF when you want to be present and aware. Because no matter how wonderful technology is, it is challenging our ability to be truly present. Which is why HOLZWEILER decided to give the audience a helping hand by making the runway mobile-free, and providing everyone with a personal package of visuals right after show.
“It was not about taking away people's creative tool, but we wanted the audience to be 100% present at this show,” says Susanne Holzweiler.
So, not having to worry about pictures and stories, the audience could just sit back and watch as the models entered the runway. The looks, styled by Someone, was inspired by how we perceive our surroundings, with a great focus on tactility and contrast; transparent or shiny fabrics meeting comfortable knit in soft blends of wool or stonewashed denim; asymmetry, tonal blocking, neon pink against sand and camel. Pieces perfect for adventures in nature vs. pieces made for the moments you want to be on, out and about.
The show took place at Sankt Nikolaj Kirke/The Nikolaj Contemporary Art Center, making an interesting contrast between the traditional church venue and the main element of the runway; two massive, contemporary transparent walls that blurred/revealed the models as they entered and left the runway.
