Astrid Andersen releases Asian inspired sportswear collection for S/S 18
Astrid Andersen London Menswear Spring Summer 2018 London June 2017Astrid Andersen is a designer that has gained critical acclaim both on the runway and the streets over the past few seasons. This season sees Andersen put the street exclusively on the runway with a sportswear inspired collection throughout.
The collection is heavily based on the materials used with silk, velvet and printed textile being used throughout. Andersen also employs layering as a way to differentiate between the materials and to push further into the street fashion; using traditional Asian coats as a layer over her branded hoodie. This is an interesting use and is attempting to delve into the Asian fashion market; this look featured prominently in Seoul over the last two seasons and its refreshing to see it make its way onto the London runway.
Andersen is always a designer that attempts to push menswear in a new and exciting direction and we at PAUSE agree that this season is one that hasn’t disappointed in this regard.
