Kicking off the third and final day of this season’s Copenhagen Fashion Week, local label mfpen showcased its Fall/Winter 2019 collection. Taking its name from the Danish word meaning “morning breeze,” the collection saw mfpen continue to develop its aesthetic, with relaxed tailoring, high-quality shirting and a focus on understated design running throughout the collection.
“I wanted to do something with the feeling when you’re own your way home from the club and its early morning and the sun is up, and people are going to the offices or commuting, but you’re still out,” explained founder and creative director Sigurd Bank following the show. “For me that’s a beautiful moment. It’s this mix of people.” These contrasting influences — the office worker and the returning clubber — are referenced in pieces ranging from utility-style reversible vests in grey and pink to formal overcoats.
The coats in the collection are one of the key focuses, with Bank identifying them as a highlight. For Fall/Winter 2019, the outerwear includes staple black wool coats as well as casual puffa jackets and a stand-out checkered coat. Other key pieces in the collection include the shirting — some of which features an over-stamped mfpen logo — and distressed knitwear.
