Fresh off the plane from Copenhagen Fashion Week’s fall 2019 shows, I felt a little overwhelmed at the prospect of breaking down everything I’d seen during a fun and frenzied week in the Danish capital. I’ve already covered the second-to-none street style scene and interviewed one of the week’s buzziest designers, but I couldn’t ignore what Copenhagen Fashion Week does best: how it dictates what everyone will soon be wearing.
It was tough to narrow it down, but I rounded up 7 amazing trends I spotted at various shows throughout the week. For instance, the recycled and organic materials spotted at Stine Goya, Hofmann Copenhagen, and other brands perfectly aligned with new Copenhagen Fashion Week CEO Cecilie Thorsmark’s vision to make the week more sustainable. “As a trendsetting fashion week, we need to help make sustainability attractive,” Thorsmark said in a statement. “We have a voice and an ethical obligation to use it.”
For Stine Goya, that meant incorporating organic hemp and silk certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard—and even using recycled and recyclable sequins, buttons, and zippers. Organic certifications might sound “boring” at first, but Goya brought her sustainable collection to life with an amazing choreographed performance that made it one of the most memorable shows of the week.
Meanwhile, brands like Stand, By Malene Birger, Ganni, and others also brought their A-game this season. Scroll down to see and shop 7 trends from Copenhagen Fashion Week F/W 19.
Next up, read my interview with buzzy Copenhagen Fashion Week designer Cecilie Bahnsen.
Bella Hadid Just Endorsed the Controversial Denim Trend People Are Dreading
Bella Hadid has proven time and again that she can pretty much wear anything and look cool doing it. The same doesn’t really go for all of us, though, which is why certain trends become controversial. One of the most controversial denim trends in the game is low-rise jeans. As you know, they had their heyday in the early 2000s but were later replaced by more flattering styles—i.e., high-waisted jeans. But celebs and the fashion world have been hinting at their return, and although it’s been met with some (well, a lot of) resistance, it hasn’t really hit the mainstream again.
As you know, Bella Hadid’s influence on what the world wears is pretty strong. Time will tell if it’s strong enough to make people embrace jeans that hit below their belly buttons again, but there’s no denying that she wears them well. On a side note, her sweater is a $60 Mango find. That may be an easier pill to swallow.

Meet Zara's Younger Sister Brand That Everyone Will Shop Today
Calling all Zara stans, if you shop the retailer just as much as we do (i.e., a lot) then this one’s for you. You may know about Zara’s sister brands like the equally as on-trend and affordable Stradivarius and Bershka since Zara’s parent company, Inditex, owns a handful of cool Spanish brands. However, there’s a good chance you’ve never heard of another of its other sister brands, Pull&Bear, since it wasn’t sold in the U.S.—until now, that is.
Pull&Bear just launched its e-commerce in the States, so now we can finally shop the Zara-adjacent brand that our Spanish and European fashion friends already knew about for a while. We’re calling Pull&Bear the little sister to Zara because its offering skews a tad more trendy and youthful than good old Z. Soon you’ll be shopping here for fun-loving pieces like tie-dye tees, bucket hats, and all the chunky-soled shoes your heart could desire. And everything is slightly more affordable than you’d find at Zara, too, so add that to the list of reasons to check out the newest Inditex brand in town.
To get a taste of all the cool things on offer at Pull&Bear, keep reading to shop our edit and then wait patiently because we just know all the fashion girls will be wearing the brand soon enough.
