-I visualize that a strong woman with plenty of confidence could easily wear this to work. I would wear that to work every day!, says HENNE editor-in-chief Ellen Arnstad about the look.
The models wore firm shapes of leather and scarp tailoring, and strutted down the runway with high fierce heels. The design added a fresh feel to Norwegian fashion, and Hamre’s show guided Oslo fashion week in a new direction.
The mix of different textiles; knit plus leather, and leather plus transparent nude, gave the winter collection an edgy and high-fashion look. The garments cut and style were on an international level, and Helje Hamre has followed the red thread from his previous collection with details like sippers, short skirts, shimming fabric and feminine shapes.

The colour palette was moved from lighter colours that he used in the summer collection, over to more darker and mossy tones. Moreover, he had added a 80s power theme. The feminine silhouette was added a masculine touch.
Girls with loose chinos and male-oriented outerwear, yet lacquer and fish-net hosiery had a strong position in the collection. A good description on one of the outfits could be Wall Street with sin.
Finally the show ended with a beautiful mocha coloured chiffon dress with a rad black college jacket, which marked the whole point of the collection.
