The key to David Andersen's collection was classic, simple, and sharp tailoring. He showed it with an air of inevitability, as if he'd never ordered anything else, when his spring collection entered Christian IV's newly restored brewery on Frederiksholm's Channel. A unique location with a fantastic atmosphere.

And the clothes – we couldn't get enough. Top models walking the runway over the cobblestones delivered the goods. Signaling rubber shoes with ankle socks and just as flat sandals with everything. Was it a farewell, perhaps, to summer stilettos? Sneakers have already conquered many a fashionista foot, so who knows.

All seen in black and white and more black and white with sporty, everyday, and special occasions covered by Andersen, who's got all the right talents.

The slim men's blazers were a pure tailoring joy, also as suit jackets with both long and short pants. Leather bomber jackets and blazers for both sexes attained must-have status. The girls got weak-kneed over fine dresses with ballerina widths, and the success was gilded.
