Decadence in the detail – Jesper Høvring

Words Katrine Lund-Nielsen

In the suave surroundings of Palmehaven at d’Angleterre, couture designer Jesper Høvring held his show Thursday afternoon, boasting an extravagance many had thirsted for.

Beautiful pleated skirts and matching blouses in dusty black or burgundy with elegant details of velvet cuffs competed for attention with ruffles and multi-colored embroidery. Later in the show, a black evening gown with dusty grey, green, and golden embroidery that looked like falling leaves struck the same note.

For glamorous party occasions, Jesper Høvring would suggest sequin dresses with an ombre effect of metallic colors. And suits of velvet pants with tailored jackets in blue or burgundy brocade.

Everydaywear was introduced on the catwalk, too. Still with the extravagant details key to the Jesper Høvring DNA. Including a pajamas-inspired suit with floaty pants and a see-through blouse, closed by a big yet feminine bow belt. Sequins were sewn as little flowers on the top.

As always, attendees of the show were dedicated Jesper Høvring fans, who didn’t seem disappointed by the couture pieces introduced last in the show. Come this winter, glamourous women will wear one-shoulder black velvet dresses, sexy slits, beige or burgundy leaves in embroidery on see-through tulle, and sparkling sequins on capes and long-sleeved dresses that could easily contend in the red-carpet blitz.
