The “Chthonic Penumbra” fall/winter 2023 pret-á-porter collection from the Danish fashion house continues its artistic direction where sculptural shapes, organic curves and brutal design elements drives the expression.
Handcrafted and welted boots, chrome sculptures integrated into garments and dresses, ripped draping techniques and lightweight designed chrome eyewear directed the collection.
Faux fur, vegan leather, feathers, and pearls are the dominating materials in the collection creating a raw,
yet elegant feeling. The color scale strikes in tones of grey and black, with a soft touch of white and chrome to create a contrast complimented throughout the entire collection.
The dense and dramatic raw atmosphere provided was accompanied by dystopian and brutal audio that altogether provided the backdrop to an intensely emotional visual experience. It provided a framework whereby the surprise launch of the global collaboration between Han Kjøbenhavn and Diablo® IV (the hugely anticipated game from Blizzard Entertainment) revealed exclusive collaboration creations down the runway.
The creations are featured against eye-catching blood red fabrics, which included mesh and rubber complete with Han Kjøbenhavn’s signature sculptural volumes. Tight-fitted bodysuits embroidered with Diablo IV logo showcased the companies’ vision of making ‘hell a beautiful place’.
