Being from Denmark doesn’t necessarily mean that all things are Scandinavian in the clean, minimalist way. Danish designer Jesper Hovring brings intricacy to his gowns, a skill he no doubt picked up while working on theatre cosumtes and couture dresses alike. But despite the presence of detail in his spring 2012 collection – detail that leans to gentle lacework and appliques, occasionally bursting into tulle ruffles or gathers of fabric – there’s still a beautiful simplicity to each gown that hints at what the Danes do best. Things can certainly be detailed, without being over the top.
