Astrid Andersen is a London based brand that creates premium casual wear with sports inspired aesthetic, leading a new generation in menswear. The brand offers comfort and quality as an uncompromised signature of its style. Last season, Astrid Andersen showed her first dedicated women’s collection, following the success of her SS17 pre-collection last year Astrid has now presented her safari inspired SS18 collection at the 5th year anniversary of London Fashion Week Men’s.
The collection featured the brand’s signature sporty looks, with splashes of gold details and printed silk in different shades of blue and pastel green, combined with velvet tracksuits with patches of silver and gold. The piece that really stood out on the runway was the turquoise, rubber-like trousers and in combination with a kimono-style coat, it blended it with the theme perfectly.
It’s interesting to see how this young designer developed her craft, without losing her signature style. As sportswear has become mainstream over the past few years within street style culture. We love to see British designers like Astrid Andersen taking the trend to a new level by using quality fabrics and textures. With an outstanding colour pallet along with layering different length and materials, Astrid proves –again, her skills in combining high class with streetwear and shaping it into a decadent collection.
