CPHFW – Asger Juel Larsén AW16

This season  Asger Juel Larsén presented a  most well rounded and put together collection. In a move towards a more commercial aesthetic the designer had toned down a lot of the madhouse that was previous seasons,  AJL models could be seen as the badasses of a post-apocalyptic world. Suited for different climates, AJL seemed to prepare his models for both mountain climes in the Himalayas as well as terrain season in Indonesia, even the vibe of the streets of England. In saying this the designer still managed to stay true to the label’s DNA pushing through vintage rock inspired looks with tartans reflecting rockabilly, ripped black jeans and leopard print detailing throughout.

The collection had a rough and cocky vibe, as could be expected of AJL . The music in form of a live drum performance were fast and almost hunted, expanding to the design as well, in a sense of haunting or be hunted.

Entitled “Born Worn”, stand out pieces were the outerwear which included an oversized poncho in waxed cotton with shearling lining, the tartan and camel jackets with leopard print collar and the draped fur blanket in a mix of colours that was super cozy.
