BARBARA I GONGINI SS15 in Copenhagen

It brought me back to the 1990's.  Barbara I Gongini's fashion show on the first day of Copenhagen Fashion week was reminiscent of Belgian avant-garde designers like Dries Van Noten and Ann Demeulemeester, or Japanese pioneers like Yohji Yamamoto.

The soundtrack was a deep, electronic pulsing beat.  There were creepy sets of twins who posed/danced in a mirror-like manner.   The clothing itself?  Actually quite wearable under the theatrics.  The super soft leather jackets were flattering.  The asymmetrical or organically draped garments had a sophisticated, comfortable look.  Long shirts, well fitted pants and shorts would look good on any artistic gentleman.

Barbara was born in the Faroe islands and graduated from Denmark’s School of Design at the Institute of Unica Design.  Her  priorities are challenging traditional pattern-making and practicing sustainable production.
