Copenhagen Fashion Week: Anne Sofie Madsen SS13

The Anne Sofie Madsen girl is instantly recognizable as the coolest girl in the room. The collection was a perfect blend of contractions: hard and soft materials, high fashion sensibility with a streetwear attitude. It was refreshing to see the models strut down the catwalk in sneakers without the Lilly Allen brattiness. The silhouettes were slightly 20’s and 30’s with drop-waist dresses embroidered with Swarovski crystals and leather assembled to appear like bones on the delicate mesh. Madsen’s strength lies in her ability to pay great attention to detail, best seen in the elaborate fringe work seen in some of the standout pieces and having dyed fabrics by hand. Anne Sofie Madsen is on to a winner with her punk sensibilities.
