The Copenhagen Experience

Watch and feel the mood and look of the Mads Nørgaard- Copenhagen collection. The Copenhagen Experience is his project that's going to run consectively through three of his collections- starting in SS08. His second short film came out in Feb and because Freja-Beha (as well as male model Eddie Klint and co.) is in it, there's no way I'm not blogging about this.

The SS08 video:

which I didn't like nearly as much as "The Copenhagen Experience #2" for
Nørgaard's AW08 collection, aka the "Paint it Black" collection. His current work is:
about simplicity and elegance - confronted by decadence, trying to give decadence an updated meaning. Paris in the early sixties has been important, so has London - Mary Quant, Courreges and Cardin - Bob Dylan playing electric at London Olympia in 1966 - the optimism - confronted by a touch of spleen, weltschmertz. The tone is slightly thoughtful, and at the same time sexy, shiny and elegantly optimistic.

Maybe because it's smoother (as opposed to the choppy cutting technique used in #1, but that's a matter of personal opinion I suppose) or that the pieces are more noir and black. Is it the fact that there is a stronger story behind #2 or simply because Freja gets more air time?
