10 Danish fashion brands that will help you channel the slick style of Copenhagen's fashion crowd
One of the best established Danish fashion brands, that doesn't mean there's anything stale about Baum und Pferdgarten. Think timeless designs, playful contrasts of colours, fabrics and prints and a beautiful lightness of touch.
The perfect bridge between work and weekend, Gestuz has smart casual dressing sewn up: ideal if you're looking to buy less and wear it better. Particularly good for jumpsuits, denim and some of the most wearable leather pieces around.
This 20-year-old label from husband-and-wife team Ditte and Nicolaj Reffstrup has rocketed in recent years to become one of the most talked-about and in-demand of the mid-price market. Ganni challenges the notion that Danish style is all about mid-century angles, neutrals and minimalism without losing any of its Copenhagen charm.

Who says a winter coat has to be black to be practical? Certainly not Barbara Potts and Cathrine Saks, co-founders of Saks Potts, the Copenhagen-based purveyors of candy-coloured leather and faux fur have, unsurprisingly, become a staple on Instagram feeds every time the mercury plummets.
Danish cool landed in London by way of Copenhagen's Samsøe & Samsøe's first UK flagship, which opened in 2019. The brand comes with all the major cornerstones of Scandi-fashion: minimalist, sleek design with really good basics made from luxe fabrics. One to covet.
By Malene Birger was an instant hit when it appeared in Copenhagen Fashion Week in 2004, and soon became a cornerstone of Danish fashion.

Copenhagen-based, LVMH prize acknowledged, fairy-dream girl Cecilie Bahnsen mixes the opulence of couture with a Scandinavian sweetness.
It's undeniable that she boasts an impressive CV, having worked for Erdem and John Galliano, with a rich education in the realm of sculptural, whimsical design. Each of her pieces is meticulously handmade with unique fabrics and traditional techniques. This is new romance. This is the stuff of fairytales.
