For their third runway show during Copenhagen Fashion Week, Rabens Saloner presented their Spring 2023 collection, ‘Serendipity’ in the surprising location of a road safety centre in Refshaleøen. The raw concrete space was transformed into a beautiful urban beach scene, scattered with dozens of parasols, forming the backdrop to a collection that celebrated the beauty of the unexpected. All the seating and show set will be available for sale in the Rabens Saloner interior store in Vesterbro, Copenhagen.

When it comes to style, sometimes the most beautiful things come from the unexpected: the way colours react when put together by accident or the way a silhouette changes when clothes fall in an unplanned manner. Inspired by such serendipity, Rabens Saloner has created a summer collection that celebrates the joy of light and easy dressing and the allure of the happy accident.

Taking a colour palette from the organic silicone paintings of contemporary artist Lev Khesin, a background of graphic black, white and crystal grey is given bold shots of strawberry, jade and lemon zest to add a dynamic and optimistic edge. Fabrics throughout are light and airy, giving a carefree attitude to summer dressing whilst textures play with the contrast between shiny and matt or organic and ordered.
