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.
Alright, it is enough by now: this autumn, the crawling cold and also the wet feet.
From now on I am wearing boots. Call me whatever you want. If you insist also a Prenzlauer Berg-hiker.
Starting today, I am putting my feet in the warm-feet-classic RED WING, so that I will stop freezing. One would know this shoes mainly by seeing them on advertisement-agency owners from Hamburg wearing them during weekend-autumn-walks with their big dogs while resting on Sylt or on edgy Düsseldorf- inhabitants, who also enjoy wearing ‘Designer-Jeans‘ and half-long hair. I am neither of those two things, and I do not want to become either.
But them and me, we are connected now: by having warm, dry feet. And that is worth it! For real. It is enough.
