By Annabella Nielsen COPENHAGEN (Reuters) - Textureless fabrics in white and beige swept down the runways of Copenhagen Fashion Week in a celebration of a minimalist Nordic design tradition that is flourishing in a climate of economic uncertainty. The shows - featuring female models lounging on seats reading magazines, or men swaggering in gothic kilts and leather jackets - proclaimed a new Danish style that rejects grandeur for simplicity and irreverence. Growing exports from houses such as Ganni, Acne and Malene Birger together with international acclaim for designers such as Asger Juel Larsen show the growing influence of a pared-back, understated aesthetic. It is not based around high heels and mini skirts," said buying director Justin O'Shea of Munich-based luxury fashion online store MyTheresa.com.
With new cuts from some of fashion's biggest names, here's our pick of the hottest new fashion films from the past seven days: Italian fashion label Bottega Veneta has unveiled the video for its Fall/Winter 2014 campaign, starring models Edie Campbell and Otto Lotz.

The Italian brand chose to partner with the American actress once again to promote its first ever cream eyeshadow. Dolce & Gabbana, which has launched palettes of powder eyeshadows with two or four colors in the past, has introduced an entirely new product: a cream eye color available in single shades. "It's perfect by itself although adding a lighter tone from your favourite Eyeshadow Quad or Duo, or applying a pearl shade alongside a matte one will create extra drama," explains Pat McGrath. To give its new eyeshadow the campaign it deserves, the brand enlisted the help of one of its most loyal spokesmodels: Scarlett Johansson.
This week, Dolce & Gabbana is making its debut in the skincare market with two collections. For its first foray into skincare, Dolce & Gabbana is pulling out all the stops, promising to give its clients "captivating skin."

By Astrid Wendlandt PARIS (Reuters) - As Paris Haute Couture week gathered pace on its second day, Raf Simons offered a walk through history at Christian Dior, with a mix of 18th century-inspired dresses with side hoops and embroidered masculine court coats. The designer said he was searching for a modern interpretation of fashion codes from centuries past for his fifth haute couture collection since he was appointed Dior's chief designer in 2012 to replace John Galliano. "Raf asked himself how 18th century fashion could be re-interpreted with today's codes," Dior Chief Executive Sidney Toledano told Reuters after the show. "He looked at it not from the point of view of today, not one of a museum." Other striking dresses included 1920s-inspired embroidered or printed cocktail dresses and long woollen coats with slightly bouffant wrists.
Christian Dior designer Raf Simons on Monday took Paris fashion on a journey through history with a haute couture collection in which Edwardian coats and bodices met flapper dresses and space suits. A-listers Sean Penn, girlfriend Charlize Theron and Marion Cotillard were among those on the front row of the show, held in Paris's Rodin Museum.

The bride finished off her wedding look with Brian Atwood shoes and a cathedral length veil, and wore jewels by Neil Lane, the mag reported.
