The Twenty SS20 Issue

Solid; Sport Meets Luxury

By Jo Phillips

Delve into unfamiliar territory with Astrid Andersen’s womenswear collection for Spring/Summer 2018.  The Danish menswear designer recently proved that she could incorporate the same level of drama, comfort and sophistication that her menswear ranges are renowned for, into her womenswear debut for Fall 2017.

Her latest collection continues to deliver elegantly dramatic designs that merge contemporary sports luxe with tradition and heritage.  A colour palette comprised of soft mints and faded khakis conjures the running theme of tranquility, whilst delicate floral prints add an oriental tone to the pieces.

Astrid Anderson is known for her use of juxtaposition when producing collections. What makes SS18 really special is that the archetypal ‘safari’ theme has been given a unique twist. Flared sleeves and flowing kimonos with the addition of stripes, logos and metallic details combine a tropical walk with a basketball game.

This season, Astrid Anderson has collaborated with Danish jeweller, Moines. Known for its craftsmanship, this innovative company has over 40 years of experience converting raw materials into elegant, handcrafted pieces for some of the worlds most established fashion houses. A distinctive understanding of luxury and attention to detail makes Moines the perfect partner for this collection. The brands came together to convert diamonds imported from Brazilian mountains, and wood gathered from forests in the Philippines into arm and wrist accessories, which compliment the clothing by reiterating the theme of nature.
