Ellen Pedersen’s second collection at Copenhagen Fashion Week was inspired by British subculture the MODS. The young man wearing Pedersen’s designs is one longing for beautiful clothes in dark, deep undertones. The collection is definitely a big avant-garde and strays away from tradition to instead invite a bit of underground cult style.
Long coats, tight pant, furry hoods and baseball hats give us a a Maharishi vibe, and I wouldn’t be surprised in Pedersen had a large underground following. Not to mention, her coats could keep a Scandinavian (or, a Canadian, New Yorker, etc) warm in the winter for sure.
The line is youthful and geared towards an alternative man, not one, perhaps going into the bank on Monday morning, but instead one recording his own record, or clicking away at a vintage typewriter, sharing his memoirs with the world.
Colorblocking and geometric stamping keep the collection moder and still relevant. Perhaps the same man who goes into the bank by day can still be a Pedersen man by night.
At BDMOTP, we do appreciate a dapper gentleman, but also a creative one who is not afraid to try something new. And that something new is Ellen Pedersen.
