Copenhagen Fashion Week: Asger Juel Larsen – Spring/Summer 2013

One of the highlights of the Copenhagen Fashion Week surely was Asger Juel Larsen. The Dane, who studied at the London College of Fashion and cleared away the first prize, had a show there, on a way too early Friday afternoon at one o’clock.

The complexity of his Spring/Summer collection for the coming year can really amaze: from monochrome shirt-pants-jacket combinations, over shimmering bomber jackets with hoods, allover skull prints, midriff sweaters, yard-long raincoats and three-quarter-long pants (absolutely super-trendy!), to gothic dresses and gowns, as well as a complete look of the gothic, abstract  tribals  (!) and neon colors combined.

While the gothic stuff makes us shudder shudder a little due to the Nu-Grave reference times, we find the three-quarter pants, bomber jackets and the all-over prints awesome. This collection is simply too much of a whole shebang.

The variety of trends that Asger Juel Larsen picks up and continues, makes many of his fellow designers look quite pale. Not only in Copenhagen – but also worldwide.

PS: If we may trust our rumor-trained ears, it looks like Asger Juel Larsen is soon moving to Berlin. That would be of crazy profit for the local fashion business.

Vivienne Westwood: ‘YES’ for the Split-Off of Scotland

Today the people of Scotland are deciding in a referendum, if they want to be independent, or want to continue being a part of the British kingdom. Ex-corner-and-free-kick-specialist and fashion icon David Beckham has militated against the split-off of Scotland in an open later.

‘Becks’ says, watch out, get your tissues, because now it is getting emotional: that Scotland and England have more in common, then what separates them.VIVIENNE WESTWOOD apparently has a different opinion:

Westwood sent her models on the catwalk, at her Red Label SS 2015 show during London fashion week, with blue ‘YES’ buttons, which were pinned on hats and revers.

Westwood, who’s always used her fashion shows as a platform for political messages, also put notes on the chairs of the guests before the show, which had the following statement on them:

‘I am so excited. I hope that the Scots will win. It could be the turning point towards a better world. They could lead by example.’ Backstage, after the show, her words in-favour of the split-off of Scotland, were even clearer: ‘I hate England … I like Scotland because somehow I think they are better than we are. They are more democratic.’

The fashion by Vivienne Westwood – doesn’t matter in which line – has crossed its zenith. When Vivienne’s pieces become fashion (again), then it’s mostly old ideas, like the ‘Mountain Hat’, which are becoming successful again.

But – if you are not considering her fashion – it is fascinating with what kind of radicalness Westwood is combining fashion in politics, although her high age (73 years). She knows how to use fashion as a platform for her opinion, as well as hardly anyone else in the fashion business.

Preview: Adidas Originals x Pharrell Williams

At the beginning of the year, ADIDAS announced a collaboration together with Pharrell Williams, that shouldn’t be a one-season-thing. 

The cooperation between the Herzogenaurach-based sports-article producer and the US musician is going to be a fixed thing, beyond a few season, is the declaration. The first pictures – more or less a preview – have been crossing the net today.

Two classics have been dared by Pharrell: the super-star training-jacket with the iconic Adidas-stripes and the Stan Smith – both items are going to be available in red, blue and black.

The jacket will cost about 1000 Dollar, the Stan Smith 150 Dollar. From the 20th of september on, the first pieces of the collaboration will be delivered to selected sneaker-stores, concept-stores and adidas originals flagship stores.
