This week, on the other side of the globe in Scandinavia’s style capital, Copenhagen hosted a very chic, socially distanced fashion week. Home to some of the best street style on earth, the lineup of collections didn’t disappoint. From Ganni’s ‘90s inspired concert ‘Love Forever’ to Rixo’s stop-and-stare occasion wear, the distinctive style of the Nordics has left us looking for our own dose of Scandi-cool. In the spirit of the shows this week, we’ve rounded up our favourite Scandinavian designers for you to enjoy from the distance of Down Under.
Synonymous with their coveted evening wear, big sleeves, and daring hemlines, ROTATE is reinventing the best of the 80s.

Known for putting on one of the most entertaining catwalks at Copenhagen Fashion Week, you’ll want to be adding ROTATE to your radar.
