Ganni Spring/Summer 2015
I hate to play favourites, but I think we should all concede that Ganni scored highest on the fashion court last week in Copenhagen. Set in the backyard of Hotel Mercur, a flawless team of golden skinned, golden haired girls—including danish delights (and personal favs) Caroline Brash Nielsen and Emma Oak—in all-white lace-ups and super-clean separates marched up and down the red clay covered catwalk.
While a slim-fit Tom Ford-esque sequin dress was the perfect after-hour counterpart to the easy sporty pieces to be worn by day, the relaxed, fuss-free florals had me reconsidering my no-print policy.
It was, all in all, a perfectly curated lineup of deceptively simple basics for the girl always on the go. And the best part? The Danish label-to-watch just opened a pop-up store one minute away from my street in Shoreditch. How's that for a neighbourhood welcome gift?
Trust a scandi-loyalist on this one, you must drop by.

Running the gamut from retro blues to rock-chick skinnies, here is a comprehensive guide to your most hard-working wardrobe staple. Introducing my favourite go-to denim friends and how best to wear.
The #throwback jean
Blazer: Acne Studios || Jeans: Monki 'Kimomo' || Shoes: Celine || Top: Stine Goya || Clutch: Figaros Bryllup || Sunnies: Celine
Man repellers rejoice: the mom jean is having a comeback. Style this faded 90s staple with shiny brogues and dressy separates for everyday ease. Logo underwear optional.
The slinky skinny
Jeans: Monki 'Nokimi' || Trench: Monki || T-shirt: Monki || Pumps: Jimmy Choo || Clutch: Figaros Bryllup
The perfect-fit skinny pant is a rarified specie, but once you've tracked down your match-made-in-heaven, there will be no keeping you two apart. Team duly clad legs with low key lace-ups for street-smart chic and snazzy pumps for after-hours fun. Kate Moss, eat your heart out.
The second skin saviour
Jeans: Monki 'Oki' || Sweatshirt: Calvin Klein || Shoes: Converse || Bag: Chanel || Watch: Larsson and Jennings
Super soft, sprayed-on pants are the closest thing to lazy day leggings you can get away with without causing sartorial offence. Loose yourself in a roomy sweatshirt and let your stretchy five-pocket saviour do all the legwork. Best for: hungover sundays and never-ending meals.
The girl-meets-boy get-up.
Jeans: Monki 'Ikmo' || Knit: Monki || Jacket: Filippa K || Pumps: Jimmy Choo || Tote: By Malene Birger
The boyfriend jean is not, as its name suggests, a pair of blues stolen from the men's department. It does however hold the key to tomboy chic a la Jane Birkin circa 1970. Offset with a simple pump and messy locks for effortless gamine style.
