DANSK DAILY: Arty Avantgarde 2OR+BYYAT
WORDS: Elsebeth Mouritzen, Editor-In-Chief
Børsen, the distinguished Stock Exchange venue, was a striking contrast to the fashions of Finnish newcomer 2OR+BYYAT on the Copenhagen show schedule with the designer’s pronounced avantgarde edge in both styling and design.
The collection addressed both men and women in a common theme of very artistic fringy tops in shiny silkribbons resembling oversize crochet sweaters from the punk age, for the male part teamed with roomy rustic pants and bronzed combat boots.
With strong reference to origami and other Asian influences, the female part of the collection took a more feminine, yet strong and arty direction with asymmetrical hem and necklines, folded and draped skirts, done in satin, wool and textured fabrics. many of them sparkling like frost with lurex and crystals in the mostly blue, petrol, warm orange and charcoal hues. Interesting were individual shoulder pieces of leather with long, dancing fringes, which would give a little edge to even the most ordinary sweater of other origin.
It wouldn’t be Finnish without prints, and designer YAT had transferred oversize patterns and pixels to several dresses, but his strongest asset was interplay of textures.
