Bringing Back Buffalo
Drawing inspiration from Buffalo-era London, Danish designer Astrid Andersen’s Autumn Winter collection paid homage to the influential movement and the impact that it has had on her own design aesthetic. Integrating iconic 80s imagery, the line-up included original shots by photographer Mark Lebon of Jeny Howorth styled by Caroline Baker, and Jeny Howorth’s daughter Georgia even walked in the show.
Bringing some fun to the collection, cowboy hats were a staple look throughout the show. Created from a mind-set seeking fun and adventure, elsewhere there were also knitted balaclavas and eclectic patterns emblazoned with glitter. What more could you want, eh?
Baggy Is Better
As with everything Andersen does, comfort was evident in all aspects of the looks on show, and basically every piece was giving us some serious outfit envy. Pairing oversized jackets and baggy trousers, the line-up looked effortless yet fine-tuned, and the preview of a few womenswear pieces emphasised the importance of a genderless approach to fashion in Andersen’s designs.
