Aknvas, NYFW, Spring 2020
Aknvas [pronounced ah-can-vas] pieces are made for the modern woman. Designer Christian Juul Nielsen wanted to create a collection easily worn from day to night, the office to the streets. European, specifically Danish, influence guides his pieces, clean silhouettes and delicate hemlines prevail throughout his pieces and his newest Resort collection (launching October 2019). The added touches in his work, whether it be the rhinestones placed over a classic tartan print or a pop of color along seams, distinguishes the designer from others as it displays his commitment to creating something unique yet not over the top, something perfectly tailored for the creative, upscale working woman. His work has clear sophistication and attention for detail, celebrities like Kate Bosworth already wearing his new line.
