Designer Jannik Wikkelsø Davidsen unveiled HAN KJØBENHAVN Fall Winter 2021.22 Sweet Melancholia Collection, that fuses dramatic silhouettes and hard shapes with refined craftsmanship. The collection was presented with a fashion movie directed by film maker Casper Sejersen, on January 17th, as part of digital Milan Fashion Week.
Milano is a fashion city we feel closely connected to, both on a personal level and a professional level. Han Kjøbenhavn is experiencing a strong international growth, which we have worked purposefully towards. Showing at the biggest fashion scenes is a crucial part of this plan. Becoming an established part of the Milan Fashion Week’s calendar, with its strong heritage and international recognition, is an important step in the journey of Han Kjøbenhavn – founder and creative director of Han Kjøbenhavn, Jannik Wikkelsø Davidsen.
Fashion film, accompanied by series of stills, shows collection made from fine Italian cotton, heavy leather and faux fur in a muted and earthy color palette. The collection features tailoring with contouring metal details, lacing outfits and voluminous coats and dresses. Han Kjøbenhavn also introduced new jewellery line.
The name of the collection is Sweet Melancholia. It’s inspired by my state of mind while creating this collection. It’s the mental ’sweet spot’, where the darkness takes over and you feel enlightened – Where the darkness feels progressive. It’s a creative potent place to be, a place created by the power of the uncontrollable – Jannik Wikkelsø Davidsen.
“A dystopian, but yet romantic, short story by the well-known Danish author Hans Christian Andersen, will be the turning point in a fashion movie full of presence and nerve, titled The Rose Elf.” – From Han Kjøbenhavn
