Copenhagen Fashion Week: Anne Sofie Madsen AW 2014

Anne Sofie Madsen – Danish Prodigy

Not only did we freeze our asses off during the Anne Sofie Madsen AW 2014, but we experienced by far the best show from Copenhagen Fashion Week.

Chains, heavy leathers and motorcycling helmets built up the Autumn/Winter 2014 collection. And for the very first time, the talented designer, included menswear in her collection. The emphasis lies in the form and surface, while the idea of deconstruction of nature is translated into the collection. Having Antarctica as inspiration is represented through the colour choices, noticing hints of white, blue and black. But also in the whole atmosphere of the collection, which is raw and metallic, through the usage of D-rings and chains. The mixture of silk with micro fibre, cotton and neoprene, out came the Scandinavian version of black punk rebels.

Anne Sofie Madsen, who has recently won the Dansk Design Talent, worked together with Kopenhagen Fur, and therefore we saw fur application in the sleeves and necklines. As well as being present in the helmets that are the work of Søren Bach. While the accessories, including D-rings and chains, are designed by Trine Tuxen.

“A journey that wasn’t”, the Autumn/Winter 2014 collection of Anne Sofie Madsen, was a one-of-a-kind experience that explored the raw world of Antarctica accompanied by fur applications, heavy leathers, chains and helmets.
