Danish brand Wood Wood presented their Spring/Summer 2013 collection during Copenhagen Fashion Week. The collection is inspired by the phenomenon ”Summer of Love”, that took place first in 1967’s San Francisco – center of the Hippie movement, and the later “Second Summer of Love” in Great Britain around 1988-89, where rave culture and Acid House exploded along with the introduction of MDMA.
