Summer 2020 is still far away, but there is one S/S20 dress from Copenhagen that is already making waves. The beautiful dress has been popping up on our Instagram feeds, and the super stylish Danish influencers are already wearing it, which means, it will be next summer’s hit for sure!
The Scandinavian stylist and trendsetter Pernille Teisbaek is one of the fashion-savvy girls that we’ve spotted wearing this white dress by Cecilie Bahnsen.
And why do we think this dress is unique? Well, the sleeveless white dress with embroidered white spots and tiered skirt is fresh and romantic, but when you turn around, the unexpected details are what makes the whole difference. The dress is surprisingly backless, and it is tied on the back with two strings that create pleats and a bit of volume, giving this romantic design a modern edge.
Although very summery, you can also wear this beautiful dress layered over a blouse and pair it with boots for a contemporary and super cool autumn look.
Cecilie Bahnsen presented at Copenhagen Fashion Week her S/S20 collection with a focus on the backs. All looks have interesting volumes and details on the back as cut-outs and big bows. The Copenhagen-native designer combines French Couture savoir-faire and Scandinavian minimalist and timeless style in her namesake label.
Bahnsen's dresses with architectural volumes are at the same time, feminine and modern, and this is why we like them so much.
