Asger Juel Larsen

 

ON FIRE

 

Asger Juel Larsen’s spectacular Spring/Summer collection, has it all – even a tragic backstory with a happy ending. Apparently, the Asger Juel Larsen studio burned down a few months before Copenhagen Fashion Week SS17 (fun fact: according to Asger Juel Larsen’s website, the studio was burned down, by the very fires of hell. How about that!) and the rumor-mill started whispering of disaster (bitches gonna bitch, am I right).

But, with the wild-child-entrepreneurial spirit, which is classic for Asger Juel Larsen (both brand and designer), the end of all their inventory, was turned in to a fresh start, freed from the constraints of the past. And so, voila, Asger Juel Larsen presented a fresh collection, inspired by the very flames, that destroyed the original one (flames that may or may not have originated from hell) – very symbolic we must say, almost biblical in a way.

The result, in our eyes, is a raw and moody style, that contradicts itself, with both dystopian and playful attitudes. Each look seems both forceful and gentle, with potential of any possible mood, much like a full personality (or is it just us, that sees that). Anyway, check out our favorite looks from the collection.
