EVENT RECAP: Han Kjøbenhavn 'Fairytale Denmark' AW19 Runway
Earlier in the week, we headed out to Paris with PUMA to sample some of Paris Fashion Week, and in particular, the Han Kjøbenhavn 'Fairytale Denmark' AW19 Runway Show. Held at the Paris Event Center, located at Porte de la Villette, we were lucky enough to gain backstage access before the show. Now, I don't know about you, but we'd never been to a fashion show never mind backstage at one, so we didn't know what to expect.
The organised chaos that exists backstage is truly something special to witness. From preparation of the garments whether that be ironing, steaming or tailoring, the amount of hair and make-up artists, the run through with timings, sound design and set design (we'll get to that), all bases were covered and it was manic. We hung about for a bit and snapped a few shots backstage while trying to not get in the way before heading round to the entrance and to our seats.
The set design was a take on a dystopian Denmark and featured towering blocks of concrete and metal structures, along with junk such as TV satellites, all of which came together perfectly and looked very impressive. Han's AW19 collection was debuted in almost 40 looks throughout the shoe, but our keen eyes were mainly on the footwear.
PUMA and Han Kjøbenhavn took this opportunity to showcase the upcoming Alteration PN-1 silhouette which is a bold statement from the brand and will be arriving with us in the next few months so keep your eyes peeled! In the meantime, check out some shots below from the show where you can get a better look at the PUMA Alteration.
