Lounge sportswear at Astrid Andersen

No great departures this season as Astrid Andersen sticks to what she does well, everyday sportswear updated with unexpected textures and colours. Her luxury street-inspired signature felt tougher for autumn/winter, bulked-up to deal with cold weather, and had subtle military undertones too. Velour and lace played an important role, offset with PVC to give the lounge feel a subversive edge, while shaved furs and brushed wools with sheen coatings ratcheted up the emphasis on balancing high-end materials with performance qualities. The extra layering and increased contrasts helped bring more depth and maturity to this season’s collection, whilst still allowing Andersen’s popular logo-heavy trademark pieces, like the premium hooded sweatshirt and panelled shell joggers, shine through – a show to keep both fans and newcomers to her work happy.  – Ben Perdue
