Menswear many times is not given the same detail as is given to womenswear. Lack of color combinations, traditional shapes, basic fabrics are all typical across brands when it comes to what is available for men’s clothing. Not when it comes Astrid Andersen designs. She took traditional English aesthetics and gave them a modern twist with her interpretation of what the sophisticated English man wears.
Throughout her Autumn/Fall collection Astrid introduces velvet. Velvet in deep gold's, burgundies, black and cream.
Styled throughout the collection are white trainers. Giving the ensembles a fresh of brightness, something not expected for the colder months, again creating different theories of what one can contemplate wearing in the season.
Luxurious velvet tracksuits in rich bourdeoux and cream plays on our concept of creating new spaces to wear previously comfort-wear for more formal places.
Astrid brings a certain opulent aesthetic to menswear that is missing from the market. Feathers and velvet, leopard print and corduroy used with casual themed clothes mirrors almost a yin and yang, of two very opposite mentalities brought together in one outfit.
