RETROSPECTIVE | COPENHAGEN
SHORT TRIP TO COPENHAGEN AND VISIT OF COPENHAGEN SPECS
IN MARCH 2017, I PACKED MY BAG AND FLEW TO COPENHAGEN. THE BEAUTIFUL CAPITAL OF DENMARK WHERE BRANDS LIKE 'ØRGREEN' AND 'FLEYE' ARE BASED AND WHERE THE FAIR 'COPENHAGEN SPECS' TAKES PLACE.
This month, the SPECTR AWARD and copenhagen specs were on my agenda. Having received over 90 applications for the award, it was quite the challenge to view and analyze all data. So many great frames and interesting brands. Our committee consisted of the fashion expert and communication consultant Heidi Kincaid, the optician Claas Witzel from specs berlin and my humble self. Trust me, it wasn’t an easy decision to pick out the winners in the two categories optical glasses and sunglasses. It was much easier to surprise the winners SALT. and VANNI at copenhagen specs with a bottle of champaign and confetti. Morten and I were pretty happy to put a big smile on David’s and Michele’s face. Maybe you’ve seen already the pictures at Instagram or Facebook? (Yip, I seem always to look at the wrong camera…)
And, by the way, if you haven’t attended copenhagen specs, you’ve really missed a great show! As the fair supports independent eyewear businesses, many interesting brands were on-site. Furthermore, one was able to attend lectures about the topics all around eyewear – I would say, educational goals achieved! And well, you’ve also missed out on great talks, good food and taking a look at Morten’s awesome branded shoes.
Let’s hope, he wears them next year again! Therefore, don’t forget to save the date: March 3-4, 2018.
