The Anne Sofie Madsen Fall 2015 collection is about a place between an unmemorable past and an unimaginable future. It embodies the contrasts between something other worldly and misplaced but at the same time familiar and well known.
The silhouettes are inspired by the existence of time traveling. A collage of futuristic and mechanical, but somehow useless and outdated industrial shapes and something from an unknown and non-existing past.
This feeling is evoked by the use of a reinterpretation of traditional handy craft methods. Hand weaving, patchwork pleating, embroidery, blurred hand painted illustrations, water colour patterns and thick brush strokes.
Leather, cashmere, hand painted silk and mink fur mixed in uncanny juxtapositions, combining ladylike and tomboyish, effortlessness and over dressed. An invention and reinvention of history.
The collection also feature jewelry designed by Maria Black, also a Danish designer. Together with Anne Sofie Madsen, they represent Danish design at its core – innovative, strong, and courageous.
Maria Black showed her latest jewellery collection; THE CODE – an interchangeable collection created in homage to artist Mark Rothko and his abstract expressionism of the 20th century.
Anne Sofie Madsen describes her collection as “a place between an unrememberable past and an unimaginable future”. Inspired by jewellery artist Margaret de Patta who is from the same era as Mark Rothko.
