Carmakoma at CIFF - sneak peek of their AW14 collection

Carmakoma's stall at Copenhagen International Fashion Fair (CIFF) was decorated in a cool and minimalistic way, very much in line with the Carmakoma vision in general.
I'm totally girl-crushing on the gorgeous Elisabeth Moore, Carmakoma's latest model. Her pics were all over the Carmakoma stall, and I think it's one of their strongest image campaigns to date. Can't wait to show you the entire magazine for AW14!
This collection is by far the most versatile one yet. I really love how many risks Carmakoma have taken, and that they are bringing some colours into the AW14 season, too. Below are a few of my favorite styles, but to be honest: I want most of the collection to find its way into my wardrobe!
Two amazing coats. The classic and elegant boyfriend coat, and the very bold red printed coat with pleather sleeves. Especially the red one has my name written all over it, don't you think?
I really loved both of these dresses. Pleather is always hot, and this has an amazing cut, and zebra stripes are making a huge comeback!
Usually I'm not that into gold, but this dress is too cute, and I could totally see myself rocking it at every Christmas party this year. The mesh and pleather dress on the right needs to happen for me, it's beyond cool!
More amazing images of the gorgeous Elisabeth Moore. Proud to also call her my friend!

Jeg har gemt en lille lækkerbisken til jer fra modeugen - jeg var nemlig et smut forbi CIFF, hvor jeg bl.a. besøgte Carmakomas stand. Jeg havde jo set dele af deres efterårs- og vinterkollektion, da modellerne havde noget af tøjet på til det show som Carmakoma afholdt (se eller gense mit indlæg her). Men på messen fik jeg lov til at se og røre ved hele kollektionen, som er intet mindre end fantastisk! Det er deres største kollektion til dato, og den er utrolig varieret. Jeg tør godt love, at der er noget for enhver smag. Der er selvfølgelig masser af deres varemærker: imiteret læder, masser af sort, samt edgy snit. Men der er også endnu flere fede prints, nogle farvede elementer, og i det hele taget kan man mixe og matche tingene på kryds og tværs. Jeg er svært begejstret! Noget jeg også er begejstret for, er deres nye imagekampagne. De fløj den amerikanske upcoming model Elisabeth Moore ind, og skød den mest fantastiske serie til efterårets magasin, som jeg slet ikke kan vente med at få lov til at vise jer. Elisabeth er utrolig smuk, og fandens dygtig, på trods af at hun ikke har skudt ret mange kampagner før, men er vant til at være på den anden side af kameraet. Parret med en flot kollektion og den dygtige fotograf Lars Wahl, er resultatet fænomenalt. I kan altså roligt glæde jer! Både til at se mere til frk. Moore, som jeg er sikker på vil få en strålende karriere som plusmodel, men ikke mindst til Carmakomas kollektion. Som jeg sagde til designeren Heidie Lykke, så har de endnu engang overgået sig selv, og det er fedt at kunne følge deres udvikling og deres succes på tæt hold. Så kan det roligt blive efterår, for jeg ved da allerede nu, hvad jeg vil gå i til den tid!

I've saved you a goodie from Copenhagen Fashion Week, as I stopped by Carmakoma's stall at CIFF (Copenhagen International Fashion Fair), where I got to see and feel their entire collection for AW14. I'd only seen a few pieces of it during the show they held earlier (read or re-read my entry on it here), but let me tell you now: this collection is nothing short of amazing! It's their biggest one to date, and it holds an incredible amount of variety. I can promise that there's something for everyone. Of course there's plenty of their trademarks: pleather, tons of black and edgy cuts. But there are also even more prints, some colourful items, and in general there are just so many ways to mix and match this collection. I'm really excited! What also excites me is the fact, that they flew in the american upcoming model Elisabeth Moore, and shot the most stunning campaign for the magazine this fall, which I can't wait to be able to show you. Elisabeth is so beautiful, and incredibly talented, despite the fact that she's barely shot any campaigns before, but is used to being on the other side of the camera. Paired with a gorgeous collection and the amazing photographer Lars Wahl, the result is phenomenal. Get excited! Both to see more of Elisabeth, who I'm sure will have a great career as a plus model, but also to the launch of the Carmakoma collection. As I said to the designer Heidie Lykke, they've once again outdone themselves, and it's so cool to follow their progress and their success up close. Now we just have to hold on until fall, as I for one already know what I'll be wearing!
