For her Spring 2019 collection, Astrid Andersen dropped the classic runway format to try out a new and conceptual way to present her range. The designer opted to showcase her collection as a live photoshoot, taking place over the span of four hours. “The idea is that the guests look at the research upstairs and then come down and watch the shoot, where we have worked to create this fantasy set. As soon as these boys are dressed, I hope you will see that the concept is a sort of ’60s, ’70s space dreaming, that summer vacation vibe, with something that felt artificial and retro, like that UFO on set alongside that,” said Andersen to Vogue.
Focusing on refining her collection, the range was much smaller than her previous endeavours. Featuring modern tracksuits with a streetwear approach, as well as windbreaker-style jackets and over-sized trousers, the collection saw a limited color palette of orange, blue and silver hues throughout. The Copenhagen/London-based designer also tapped talents like Danish singer MØ and Instagram personality Sashadidntwakeup to model the eye-catching pieces.
