Blasts from the Past: The Fashion Week Special
You might think that junglists only go to The Grey Hall in Christiania if there’s a jungle rave on. But oh no. We would go to a proper trance rave, too, if there was one. And the Christmas market. And the roller disco. And hey, a fashion show.
Welcome to the Completely Unexpected Junglist Fashion Week Special. We’re going to a Vibskov fashion show in 2008 – and then on to Nadsat, a club cool enough to be named after a language in a book.
(Or, okay, maybe they named the club after the language spoken in the film, BUT STILL.)
Okay, so junglists don’t only squeeze into The Grey Hall to go to Nis’ rave parties. This is what we look like waiting for the Vibskov fashion week show.
This is what a blitzed line-up of people look like photographed with a digital camera from 2008.
Wait, maybe this is a trance party after all.
Nah, too many people sitting down, not a trance party, definitely a fashion show.
Super busy high fashion junglists ready in their seats, waiting for the show to start!
The show is on. Maybe this is a trance party after all.
No, wait, THAT’S CARSTEN JENSEN RIGHT THERE on the catwalk. It’s not trance, then.
Audience and a piece of Drop’s forehead.
Drop just loves a good old fashion show.
Fashion mingling time.
A junglist fashion pose. Or we could call it: A Benetton moment.
What the back rows at a fashion show in The Grey Hall looks like.
And theeeeeeen, we’re off to Nadsat, the nightclub that once resided in Hyskenstræde, where we are greeted by two lovely dj’s dressed in fashionable shades of grey.
It’s fashion week, so there’s champagne, all the time everywhere.
And blond people everywhere, being hugged.
Nadsat bathed in blitz light. Nothing looks amazing bathed in blitz light.
Well, apart from Sofus the Amazing Shapeshifter, of course.
Kim Kemi og Daniel likes the blitz, too.
So what IS Nadsat, then? Nadsat is a mode of speech used by the nadsat, members of the teen subculture in the novel A Clockwork Orange. It was also a club in Hyskenstræde – from 2005 until 2009 – focusing solely and stubbornly on high quality electronic music (JUngLEkalenderen appreciates this. We like stubborn.)
“Quaint,” said Dr. Brodsky, like smiling, “the dialect of the tribe. Do you know anything of its provenance, Branom?” “Odd bits of old rhyming slang”, said Dr. Branom … “A bit of gipsy talk, too. But most of the roots are Slav. Propaganda. Subliminal penetration.” Drs. Brodsky and Branom, A Clockwork Orange, page 114.
Whohooo, Daniel Dreier arrives at the decks in Nadsat while Kim Kemi finally gets to wear his fashionable cake hat.
The dancefloor is getting juicy, apparently.
Daniel Dreier has an intense moment with the mixer.
And Luis has an intense babyface moment on the dancefloor surrounded by his droogs (that’s the word for friends in nadsat. The language, not the club).
