Show review: Soulland

Modern Horror Grandpa - Show review - Soulland fw 09

The scene was set for a bash on Thursday night when Soulland presented its new show ‘Savage Mountain’. Located in the raw and industrial Carlsberg Brewery buildings, and with a mountain placed in the center of the catwalk, expectations almost peaked before the show. The first outfit had a cozy look in nude colors, with chinos teamed up with a knitted cardigan. This classic grandpa look was contrasted by the models’ scull painted faces, which left an ambivalent impression of coziness and horror. Basic and wearable items like knitwear, shirts and waistcoats in both bright and pale colors dominated the look. More experimental pieces like knitted pants and a jumpsuit in green gave this increasingly popular streetwear label some extra edge and grit. The overall impression didn’t move mountains, but Soulland still presented a good and varied show with a solid and wearable interpretation of the grandpa look.
