Day Birger et Mikkelsen kicks off Copenhagen Fashion Week to rapturous applause
When the first model walked down the Day Birger et Mikkelsen runway, people literally cheered. Perhaps it was the anticipated return to live fashion shows, or maybe supermodel Mona Tougaard was just catcalling her friend. Either way, the energy was palpable.
As for the clothes themselves: from the relaxed trousers with front slits to the easy silk sheaths, Birger presented a deeply wearable collection - an effortless foray outside. Looks were tethered by rope-tied gladiator sandals. By the time the show closed with a floor skimming white jersey Grecian gown, we were truly back in the swing of things.
