Our Take —
Dansk is the Danish magazine that has gone through various trials and tribulations since its first appearance as one of those titles seeking to provide a platform for a specific national creative talent in the international arena. Today, it probably the most lauded Danish fashion magazine and is a key player in the Scandinavian fashion and design media scene.
With occasional brief forays into other disciplines Dansk is almost exclusively a fashion magazine, covering both men’s and women’s fashion. Although it profiles a range of approaches to fashion – some with the pared down simplicity that we have come to associate with Scandinavian design and some less so- the emphasis is on precise full-bleed photography unhindered by a fairly understated art direction; the fashion is expected to speak for itself.
In addition to the pool of local talent it profiles as designers, stylists and photographers, its growing reputation as one of the important barometers of northern Europe’s fashion scene means that is has also become more international in outlook and contributors over time.
