i-D online get the exclusive scoop on RCA graduate Astrid Andersen’s SS12 film, which premiered at mens day earlier this week.
Astrid Andersen’s wonderful world mixing fantasy with realism in mens sportswear has most definitely gained momentum over the past six months and is showing no signs of slowing. A presentation featuring male models working out in the collection, dumb bells and all, proved the perfect medium for this unique designer. A personal favourite was the brilliant pink shell suit style tracksuit top, flexing Andersen’s ability to mix luxury and casual fabrics. Andersen has a very exciting vision and could just be responsible for the way men wear sportswear in the future.
