내가 또 반길만한 디자이너 브랜드이다. 아.. 컬렉션을 보면서 한참을 웃었다. 패션계에는 이런 미치광이 디자이너는 꼭 필요하다. 즐거움을 주면서도 정곡을 콕 짚어 세상을 풍자해 주기 때문에 나는 이런 디자이너들을 사랑하는 것이다. SIMONRASMUSSE의 첫 컬렉션의 주제는 '거리의 영웅들'이다. 따라서 그들은 거리를 활보하는 노숙자 부터 미치광이, 아무도 곁에 가기 싫어하는 사람 등 다양하고 독특한 캐릭터들을 컬렉션에 담았다. 세상에 진짜 쓰레기를 컬렉션에 대놓고 등장 시킬 줄은 몰랐으나 컬렉션 속 쓰레기들이 이토록 매력적으로 보이는 건 디자이너가 그만큼 훌륭하다고 봐줘야 하나...?

이번 컬렉션.. '흠좀무'랄까. 흠 좀 무지하게 실망했다. 항상 PETER JENSEN의 컬렉션을 보면 소녀가 소근소근 속삭이는 그런 간지러운 듯 하면서도 부드러운 느낌이 들곤 해서 좋아했는데 이번 컬렉션 마치 Marc by Marc jacobs 또는 Betsey Jhonson 의 컬렉션과 다를게 없는 느낌이었다. 아. 컬러매치나 스타일링도 어디선가 본 듯한게 많아 한숨만 쉬어졌다. 그래도 특유의 위트를 한가지 룩에는 확실히 넣은 것 같으니 뭐 다음 컬렉션을 기대해 볼 수 밖에.
그래도 소녀들의 마음을 사로잡은 건 확실해 보인다.

코펜하겐 컬렉션은 개인적으로 참 좋아하는 컬렉션이다 . 상업적으로나 디자인 측면으로서 너무나 조화가 잘 되고 있는 컬렉션이기에 이 컬렉션에 참여하고 있는 모든 브랜드들이 관심 대상일 수 밖에 없다.
이번 WOOD WOOD 컬렉션은 나에게 '대박'을 연발하게 끔 한 컬렉션이였고 미친듯이 쇼핑하고 싶은 충동을 불러 일으켰다.
그래서 일까 덴마크 브랜드들을 몇 개 정도 소개해 보고 싶었다.

Fanny and Jessy are a design duo who originate from Somerset and graduated from the London College of Fashion in 2009. With their acquired skills and knowledge and through their experience working with designers such as Nova Dando, PPQ and Jean Charles de Castelbajac, they decided to launch their own label.
Fanny and Jessy is a young fashion label, aimed at women but with a strong element of unisex. The brand reflects and is intended for the experimental and confident youth culture of today. They take inspiration from the world around them in the form of avant-garde, intricate designs with a sporty silhouette. Their designs offer an alternative outlook on fashion using unconventional fabrics and exciting techniques.
Their debut collection ‘I Hope You Die Soon’ was worn by performers such as Saint Saviour of Groove Armada, Rihanna, Sarah Harding of Girls Aloud, Caroline of Kap Bambino and Bourgeois and Maurice. Their second collection titled ‘Vaniloquence’ was released off schedule in February 2010 and has already received great press coverage with pieces being borrowed by Lady Gaga for her world-wide tour. Fanny And Jessy are now stocked in several independent retailers based in London and Tokyo.
