Last night Danish designer Anne Sofie Madsen showed her ready to wear collection “Days of Future Passed” at Paris Fashion Week. The designer surprised the audience with an eclectic collection with mixed materials and shapes.
The show was the second in Paris for Anne Sofie, she made her Paris Fashion Week debut in October last year. The designer trained under John Galliano after graduating and worked as a junior designer for Alexander McQueen before starting her own brand back in 2011.
Some of the most eye-catching pieces of the autumn/winter collection were definitely the cut-out dresses that resemble art works rather than actual clothes. There was also a wide range of materials and structures from thick fur, ladylike pleats and silk to pieces made out of shoelaces. There were both masculine and feminine elements in the collection with both oversized and slim fitting silhouettes. There were tailored trousers and big coats, dresses with silky ruffles as well as mini skirts.
The accessories were many as well. Multi-colored gloves, choaker scarf-necklaces, long earrings and an orange bag and belt. Anne Sofie Madsen collaborated with Danish Maria Black on the jewelry, with French Aristide on the gloves and with Italian Farewell on four platform shoes.
The wide range of unusual materials combined together with the styling gave the whole collection a very artsy feeling all-over. Also adding to the artistic vibe were the hand-painted pieces showing off Anne Marie Madsen’s illustrator skills. Boyish and ladylike seemed to melt together in a relaxed yet elegant way.
“It’s not about garments for princesses in a fantasy world, but I do wish to bring magic into reality and preciousness into fashion”, states the designer on her site. The collection sure is a delight for all those looking for statement pieces to wear next autumn and also to those who simply love wearable art. Anne Sofie Madsen definitely stays true to her vision of creating a little piece of magic for women to wear on an everyday basis.
