The industrial settings of an old warehouse in Sydhavnen harbor, where the Munthe show was held Thursday morning, mixed with cute bunny symbols and a pink catwalk. The perfect setup for a collection that oozed with contrasts and international inspiration.
From its model cast to attendees and the collection itself, there was no doubt about Munthe’s sourcing of inspiration across borders. Opening the show was model Lina Hoss (also spotted on the runways of Gucci, Burberry, and Proenza Schouler), wearing an army-printed shirt underneath a metallic sports jacket with a bulky blazer, and oversized pants. The European homeless-chic style combined with Tokyo-inspired details like waist-belts in silk satin, a snake-like motif on the back of a fake fur, and kimono jackets with what looked like brocade print. But which could have been motifs of a bunny. For sure contrasts to the bohemian style Munthe long has been known for.
But for those of you who love Munthe’s feminine design DNA, don’t worry. It remained: Ruffled mini-skirts, long dresses in transluscent materials, coats with animal print and hints of light pink, peach, and baby blue. Making sure that both existing and new Munthe girls can mix and match to express their own style.
Whether you want to be cute like a bunny, or sport the grit of the street, or both, Munthe will provide for you this coming winter.
