Astrid Andersen references eastern cultures.
Danish streetwear designer, Astrid Andersen, braced London Collections: Men once again to showcase her Spring/Summer 2016 line at Victoria House in London on the second day of the 4 day event. Andersen is known to provide style to interest the fashion forward, which was no exception this time round.
Collecting reference and inspiration from Eastern cultures, Astrid Andersen’s use of materials and prints brought an infusion of culture to the forefront of casualwear, mixing pastels, boudoir silks and some metallic lace. The collection in itself featured a range of different loosely fitted garments from Jerseys, bomber jackets and bold coats, reinforcing the theme of comfortable premium casualwear seen throughout LCM so far.
Metallic materials, prints and neon colours made an appearance throughout the collection, supported by Astrid Andersen’s usual sportswear inspired look. Her use of silky materials to create headpieces, wraps bomber jackets and loosely fitted shorts and trousers could see Astrid Andersen pieces becoming coveted pieces throughout SS16 as she continues to incorporate comfort into high end fashion.
The collection also features the signature logo, kimono-like jackets and the return of a fondly remembered item of clothing – popper pants. This collection is sure to entice those with an eye for 90’s culture and style and is has the potential to be warmly accepted.
As proven in her showcases now and those gone before, Andersen is definitely one to watch.
