DANSK SS 2010 Issue Feat. Brigitte Nielsen & Donatella Versace Who Needs Realism?
Top model Olga Sherer covers the issue wearing Versace, shot by Joachim Mueller-Ruchholtz, Styled by Anders Sølvsten Thomsen. The issue features interviews with the style icon and myth Brigitte Nielsen, the legendary designer Donatella Versace, and fashions crown prince, Christopher Kane.
This issue is a sort of counterattack on the unfortunate taste for realism, pragmatism and normality, which has suffocated the essence of fashion for too long; an essence which has always been and should forever be about the magical, the wonderful, and that which is beyond your reach, said Editors-in-Chief, Uffe Buchard and Kim Grenaa.
Redirecting the spotlight to the fabulous and enchanting elements of fashion, DANSK speaks to Donatella Versace about the return of the baroque print, the Versace legacy, and the appointment of Christopher Kane as designer at the newly re-launched Versus. In his own interview, Christopher Kane talks religious cultism, Jenny Schimizu, and working for Donatella Versace.
Exceptionally, DANSK persuaded the iconic Danish actress Brigitte Nielsen to pose for an impressive editorial, marking her first high fashion shoot in two decades. In an in-depth interview, she reflects on her look, her 1980s top model career and remembers her friends, Helmut Newton and Gianni Versace.
Brigitte personifies the spirit of this issue: a larger-than-life, out-of-this-world beauty and character, which transcends trends, time and reality. Brigitte is one of the most charismatic figures in fashion history with one of the strongest signature looks of our time. This is the return of Brigitte Nielsen, commented Buchard and Grenaa.
