The Secret Garden
Danish designer Bibi Ghost presented her fourth collection at Copenhagen Fashion Week in a garden straight out of a fairytale. I don't know much about this designer, but it seems that the volume and minimalist tailoring is her trademark, and the leggings with sliced cut-outs at the knee, reminiscent of Rad Hourani, which she did last season as well. I think what really stands out (aside from the interesting black headpieces used in the show) is the overt causualness of this collection. I have recently begun wearing some of my button-up tops and cardigans purposely buttoned crooked to give a unique asymmetric look to the garment and the way some of these tops drape on the body reminds me of this effect.
