As I stumbled upon Cecilie Copenhagen on instagram, I immediately fell in lover with her designs. I also then started wondering, if there is a message behind her collection? But I didn’t find any messages. The only message I concluded that the designer behind this collection just fell in love with the fabric, that to most of the Arabs is very political.
And since am an Arab, I must admit my attached relationship to this fabric, that we refer to as “kufiya الكوفة, shemagh شماغ, or Hattah حَطّة”. This fabric means so much more than just a scarf, it is a statement. To me, it is a remembrance of my love and belonging to a home that I am not allowed to refer to freely, as my home. It also gives me a sense of unity, to every and to each person that carries or wears this scarf around themselves. This fabric is a connection, it is the dream for unity, human nation equality, for eternal world-wide peace and love.

To Arabs, this is a fabric used as a scarf for protection against sunburn, cold wind, dust and sand. It comes in different colors, but mainly black & white or red & white. To Palestinians, the black & white scarf grew to become a symbol, a national fabric, a political message worn to most protests and events. It is a statement of Palestinians rights to return home, Palestinians right to full human rights, and the recognition of Palestine, the land that has been occupied and terrorized since 1948.

This fabric has been recently used by many designers, Arabs and non Arabs, who tried to create a trend, a fashionable statement in combination with its political symbol. But I must admit, that the designs of Cecilie Jorgensen who is behind Cecilie Copenhagen that claims to have nothing to do with politics and yet has everything to do with fashion; are just beautiful.

I personally can’t wait to see what is next and I can’t wait to order from her website Cecilie Copenhagen or from Browns Fashion. You can read more on Cecilie Copenhagen from the following blog posts: Rich Girls, Rosy Cheeks, Sage and Clare, and Cover.
It always starts somewhere, in what ever it is; there is always the classic, without the classics we have no base to return too. Everything starts with an idea, an idea that is first implemented, then liked, and then we add our own additions to it.
In fashion, we always have the classic block, the classic cut, the classic pattern; we take it and improvise on it.
From time to time, it is nice to get back to your very basic essence of yourself. Touch base with the real deep self; observe your changes, your sensation, and your soul. Even your basic self, your classic self is different in its own way, so bring it out, show who you truly are in in the minimal way possible, show your classic self, be who you truly are.
Classic cuts, can vary from one person to another, there is one basic for each one of us, here are some of my favorite classics for this winter showing pictures from www.style.com Fall Winter 2014/2015 from designers like Comme des Garcons, Dolce& Gabbana, Hermes, Jil Stauart, Karen Walker, and Pringles of Scotland.
