Once upon a time, during the first chapters, the fairytale of Nicholas Nybro was told, with inspiration from old famous fairytales, told to every child in every kingdom among the world. In the scene of Nicholas Nobro’s SS18 show “THE BODY”, the models were walking the catwalk, in historical surroundings, all embracing the body of their own. Some, in Nicholas Nybros latest collection, where the colors went from delicate nude shapes and beige nuances to dark and warm brown. The silhouette from avantgarde to oversized and even see-through dresses, with the body more or less revealed. And some, without a cloth and bare naked, as in the fairytale “The Emperor's New Clothes” by H.C Andersen. So this is still a fairytale!
Setting the scene in a dark climbing hall on the small Refshale Island, where big shipping containers, a net for climbers where placed close to the roof, and a guitarist playing a solo on top of these containers, BARBARA I GONGINI, showed her male collection 8 & female collection 25. True to her signature, the danish designer, with roots from the far north located Faroe Islands, set a dark, seductive and avant-garde scene, with inspiration from these islands, where sunlight pierces the rugged sky and a low haze rolls over the dewy landscape, ends up with the black color in the end.
