Cecilie Bahnsen welcomed her guests with a delicate pastel pink envelope with their names in cursive, foreshadowing the color palette of her latest collection. The brand’s bright white room at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris showcased her new collection, “Untitled (Pink, White, Red, Red, Red).” The ethereal collection for the upcoming Autumn/Winter season was an expansion of the brand’s distinctive universe, highlighting the importance of showcasing in Paris, the “homeland of couture.”

Bahnsen, the founder of the label launched in 2015, considers Paris as the city of couture. She said, “This season, I wanted to capture the creative, experimental, and emotional expression through a musical performance. It’s like writing a creative diary in which you express yourself through music, clothes, or emotions.” The collection was described as the designer’s “most mature and feminine” collection, with the first two looks featuring bows on the shoulders and pastel yellow embroidery. The collection also experimented with denim and mixed traditional masculine and feminine codes.

Acne Studios transformed the prestigious Lycée Carnot, built-in 1875 by Hector Degeorge and Gustave Eiffel, into a dark enchanted forest for their latest collection. The floor was covered in small black volcanic stones, and the walls were decorated with life-sized animal posters. The brand’s creative director, Jonny Johansson, said the inspiration behind the collection was “the fantasy of children’s books from the 1960s and 1970s.”

The Swedish brand’s collection showcased a combination of soft, flowing silhouettes with structured pieces in materials such as leather and wool. The color palette included earthy tones, pastel shades, and bright red, with prints of fantastical animals like a rabbit and a zebra.

Both shows drew a large audience, including influencers and fans of the brands. Cecilie Thorsmark, the CEO of the recently held Copenhagen Fashion Week, was one of the prominent attendees at the Cecilie Bahnsen show.
