National and international press gathered at the Oslo Opera House to see the finest and latest selection of Norwegian design. The collections for autumn/winter were perfectly juxtapositioned with the arcitectural landscape of the Snøhetta drawn opera house. All the designers stayed true to the Norwegian aestetics and showcased a significant desire to put Norway on the fashion map. Veronica B. Vallnes showed thick wefts and painted animal print, whilst remaining true to her razor sharp lines and aestetics.
Elisabeth Stray Pedersen impressed with her vision; creating voluminous thick wools and blanket-like surfaces layered with fishnet trousers and embroidery.
Admir Batlak showed a fun and easy going collection in bright colours and motivational prints. His S/S collection clearly was an elevated version of his A/W collection, opting for light fabrics and sleek lines.
I really like it – I liked it last season as well and everyone dresses really cool. The last brand we saw this morning, Arct was so sick, better than many other brands I’ve seen. The collections are really good; it’s way better than what you would expect from a small fashion week and I’m looking forward to coming back next season.
–Adam Katz Sinding of Le 21ème, Streetstyle photographer and guest.
