Astrid Andersen

Spring/ Summer 2011 Menswear Collection

Danish designer Astrid Andersen could be changing our conceptions of sportswear. 
While still handsome and sporty, her informal menswear displays animal prints and gauzes as a way of enhancing the stylish aspect of the pieces.

In a recent interview, she states that it's important for her "a man to look masculine" but also "to try and play with the boundaries of this concept". The introduction of color and textures to street and sporstwear may achieve that balance.

She also claims to have been inspired by Spanish matadors, but that's something I fail to see. Anyways, the getups do work for me.
