On the first day of Copenhagen Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2019, HÆVÆRK presented a coming of age-inspired collection. The collection built on themes from previous collections, while the label returned to youth and young adulthood as its central influences.

“It’s all about this pre-teenage kid,” explained designer Niels Guntoft Hansen backstage after the show. “He’s at the age where he’s trying to find himself, but he’s not 100% sure who he wants to become.” The collection references this theme through its use of bold, primary color blocked pieces and slouchy-fitting garments. “The shape comes back to this lazy teenage attitude,” added Guntoft Hansen, “even though they’re standing straight, they have the whole attitude built into the garments.”

The collection showed the transition from childhood to awkward adolescence by mixing influences from both. The bright colors used for some pieces made them appear almost childlike, while acid-washed denim, Dr. Martens and spiked green hair made the punk influence clear. This was also alluded to in the music. The show began with a verse of Casper the Friendly Ghost before segueing into a track Guntoft Hansen described as “goofy, exaggerated, cartoon-y in a way.” Both of these tracks were markedly different to the finale, which was soundtracked by British punk band IDLES.
