How does one create a new future without reflection upon one’s origins? Astrid Andersen presented us with nostalgic reflections of her youth and her childhood family home in Denmark, even revisiting her own work and reworking her archives from the beginning of the last decade.
This was such a powerful expression of how we all grow and evolve, but only through looking back retrospectively do we truly see how everything has happened as it was meant to and just how much we change in ways you can never predict.
We were treated to signature pieces of form fitting sportswear, logos galore and tracksuits and this was clearly a collection for the trailblazer in fashion without sacrificing comfort. The boiler suit and balaclavas were showstoppers for me and contained distorted floral prints. This was uniquely reimagined from Andersen’s mother’s sofa, which she brought with her when she first left home as a homage to her maternal roots.
