He discussed a variety of topics including his influence on the Hip-Hop game.

Here’s what went down at Copenhagen Fashion Week

It’s a city known for its colourful, creative approach to clothes, and this week Copenhagen’s biannual fashion week delivered fun, free-spirited fashion in full force.

While thanks to the online-only format sightings of the Danish capital’s famously snappily dressed street style set have been notably lacking, the designers themselves rose to the challenge of presenting their autumn/ winter 21 collections digitally, with a schedule of beautiful fashion films and audience-free runway shows. 

Joining the lineup for the first time on Tuesday was high street heavyweight H&M, with the fashion week debut of its premium Studio collection. Designed at the retailer’s Stockholm atelier, the limited edition spring/ summer 21 offering, which will hit stores February 18, was inspired by adventure and treasure-seeking explorers, with octopus-like tasselled skirts, over-the-knee leather boots and pirate hats providing Jack Sparrow references aplenty.

The Arsenal defender talks about his favourite retro kits, dabbling in digital design and masculinity in football

Even when he can’t play, Hector Bellerin is one of the busiest men in football. In January 2019, the Arsenal and Spain defender ruptured his ACL, which as any footballer will know, means a lengthy layoff and a long, grinding road back to fitness. But Bellerin used his time wisely, capturing his recovery on camera before turning the footage into Unseen Journey, an episodic documentary that went live on YouTube at the start of 2021. Bellerin has also been working on a sustainable clothing collection with H&M, which launched last week, and now the fruits of his labour as creative director of Volta, the street football mode on EA Sports’ FIFA 21 video game, have been unveiled.

His role saw him expand further on his enthusiasm for style, sustainability and inclusion

How the Most Extreme Street Style Star Is Dressing for Digital Fashion Week

Men’s fashion month has become almost completely digital. And while we’ve enjoyed watching the likes of Prada, Louis Vuitton, and Dior on our screens (and playing Balenciaga’s freaky fantasy video game) there’s no denying that we are missing the in-person component, seeing the street style and being seen ourselves. But the show must go on. And even though there is a lack of street style slideshows, some fashion show guests are still dressing up. Yu Masui, a LVMH scout and one of the most outré dressers of Fashion Week, has been outfitting himself each day in anticipation for the shows.

Masui has long been known for wearing young designers, mixing and matching their pieces with larger brands to create a radical, colorful mélange. “[Watching digital shows] is kind of a mixed feeling. Excited and sad,” writes Masui from Japan, where he lives. “Digital content has definitely improved compared with
