Designer Astrid Andersen presented her Spring Summer 2020 collection, inspired by the visual universe of South Korean artist Do Ho Suh and the soundscapes of musician James Blake. Fashion photographer Akram Shah captured Astrid Andersen‘s Spring Summer 2020 lookbook featuring Mahi at Midland Agency, Samuel Wilken at New York Models, and Symone Lu at Anti-Agency. In charge of styling was Simon Rasmussen, with styling assistance from Sebastian Jean, and hair and makeup from beauty artist Jenna Scavone. Produced and created by Office Solutions.
“Astrid Andersen launches her Spring/Summer 2020 collection taking a slower, quieter approach to the creative process. This calmer rhythm in the studio is echoed in a subtly focussed collection emphasising elements of handcrafting and a lighter touch with layered dip dying and more delicate fabrications. Leaning towards multi-step development techniques and lighter textiles demonstrates a conscious move to slowing the process down, taking time to breathe and take stock between each stage, and carefully consider every detail down to the individual seems and finishes.
Peacefully crafted hand-dyed organza anoraks, trenches and hoodies give a nod to this. A retrained palette of light greys into dusty blues, black and hints of ochre further flow into this season’s mindful and contemplative mood. Spring/Summer 20 reimagines pieces exploring the area of formal shirting and sweatshirts, applying custom tonal leopard print across silk sports shirts, signature seam-sealed tracksuits and shows a fresh perspective on the brand’s jersey/velour cut track suits with a retro-poetic feel.“
