Han Kjøbenhavn Searches for Shadows in SS23 Collection

Danish label Han Kjøbenhavn showcased its Spring/Summer 2023 collection at Milan Fashion Week with a ready-to-wear collection titled “Searching for Shadows.”

The show notes unveiled that the lineup originated from the emotions that are brought to life when being in the darkness and searching for shadows. “Shadows are what we think of it to be. The objects, shapes, and emotions it carries with it, is up to the receiver to feel,” Founder Jannik Wikkelsø Davidsen said in a press release. “My aim is that it is interesting enough for people to engage in.”

A melange of sharp contrasts, straight lines, skintight design and voluminous silhouettes were translated into statement-making pieces. Inventively crafted masks and bodysuits garnered the attention of many, while a metallic bralette became one of the lineup’s hero pieces. Elsewhere, handcrafted sculptural shoes and eyewear rounded out the collection.

Dark and warm gray tones dominated the collection while a hint of silver chrome added a new life to the design and can be seen in the lineup’s top, shoes and eyewear.
