Astrid Andersen remembers Buffalo-era London for Autumn/Winter 2018 and the fundamental influence it has had on her own design aesthetic. This season is a celebration of a movement that has dared her to be braver, pushed her to need to push herself and not to accept the conventional as standard. Fittingly showing during London Fashion Week Men, these references are a direct link to why London remains the home of Astrid Andersen’s creativity, rooted in the street, the real and the unpretentious. A mash-up between the decadent and the rave – Astrid creates a relatable and fun approach to extravagance through the visual language synonymous with the brand.
This season, Astrid Andersen ventures to a place without rules and organisation from a design perspective. The collection was created from a mindset urgently seeking fun and adventure, one where the creative journey and experience is appreciated as an art form in its own right. Putting aside order and convention has allowed Astrid Andersen to let intuition be the guiding principle at the heart of this season’s development. Fabrics are eclectic and enticing with colourful silk jacquard, custom printed silks, and technical puffer fabrications through to more unexpected tweeds, tartans, and glitter organza.
