The Danish designer Astrid Andersen today launches a capsule collection created from in-house deadstock fabrics. Andersen's namesake label, based in London, was an instant favourite on the fashion circuit after debuting with Fashion East MAN in 2011. The menswear designer championed sportswear before that Louis Vuitton x Supreme collaboration happened, and before streetwear and luxury were seen as one. Ahead of her time, the designer has also been at the forefront of speaking on sustainability, and released a deadstock fabric collection with hummel earlier this year. Now, cult Andersen fans will be pleased to know that the designer has used her archive to create something brand spanking new, but that feels all at once familiar.
Conceived during lockdown, Andersen's signature sportswear silhouettes are reintroduced in a covetable mismatch of reissued custom prints, devore velour, leopard tech print, denim neoprene and tweeds. Picking and choosing from her decade long archive, trousers in silk satin and jacquard weave fit in chaotic harmony with spliced tops, hoodies, tracksuit bottoms and shorts, alongside football socks and t-shirts, on which 'ASTRID' reads in collegiate typeface. Released today in a limited run, you can shop the collection here.
