The organizers of the Revolver trade fair (7.-9. Aug.) could not have complained about the lack of footfall, because on the penultimate day visitors crowded the aisles and booths. Anthony Rock, CEO, Self Cinema, said: "This is our first time at the show and we are very happy with our decision to come to Copenhagen. It was a balance between CIFF and Revolver and as you can see we made the right decision.” Kristian List from Copenhagen's newcomer label Läst was also pleased with the crowd at the booth: "We've been full since this morning and we've had contact with a lot of new customers.”
Revolver again put a strong focus on progressive and modern Scandinavian design, as well as a mix of like-minded quality brands from the rest of the world. The internationality of the visitors was welcomed by many exhibitors. Kenneth Romulo Pedersen of Won Hundred noted, "We especially had a lot of international customers at our booth. For us, the fair has gone very well so far and we are very satisfied."
And what about the trends? The ’80s/’90s era crystallized on Revolver as one of the strongest trend themes. Denim equipped with glitter stones could be seen at Lois and Self Cinema. The denim washes were also very similar to the ’90s. Bulky sneakers in pastel shades were a sought-after product, as were overlapped blazers.
Here, half a dozen highlights from across the fair landscape:
Glitter stones & denim
