Presented in Copenhagen’s industrial port area of Nordhavn at Faurschou Foundation, STINE GOYA returned to the Copenhagen Fashion Week schedule with a Spring Summer 2018 Show, celebrating the tenth anniversary of the brand. The presentation was inspired by performance art and brought together fashion with sound, colour and spectacle to create a totally immersive sensory experience.
For Spring Summer 2018 STINE GOYA created a collection that excitedly looks forward whilst at the same time references the past 10 years. Archival elements evoke memories and flashbacks, simultaneously showing present and future elements of STINE GOYA.
The colour palette is celebratory with highlights of luminous blue, emerald green and fuchsia pink adding freshness to STINE GOYA’s trademark base of soft peach, orchid pink and amber gold. Prints, as always, are centre stage with new hand-painted designs such as Marionettes, Peaches and Magic but the archives have also been explored and iconic prints from seasons past like Air Balloon and Mirror are reinterpreted.
Exciting materials are used to offer a wide range of textures to be mixed and contrasted: from supple suede and refined silks to shiny carnation brocade and graphic striped knits. One fabric has its own secret story with the lyrics of an old show tune woven into the surface whilst another is scattered with gold moons and stars.
The mix of the past and the future is key to the collection with STINE GOYA classics such as kimonos and floaty ultra-feminine dresses being presented alongside new more structured styles such as classic shirts, fitted dresses and suiting.
