Asger Juel Larsen AW16
Located in what is arguably the most prestigious hotel in Denmark, renowned streetwear designer Asger Juel Larsen presented his AW16 collection at Hotel D’Angleterre on the 2nd day of Copenhagen Fashion Week. Following a couple of seasons experimenting with neon, rubber and bizarre prints, the Danish designer returned to his roots with the new collection “Born Worn”.
The scene was set in the “Palm Court”, a former 16th century grand mansion garden turned glass hall in 1902. Besides its rich history of prominent guests and events, this legendary hall holds the largest glass mosaic roof in Europe, which contributed to manifest the exclusiveness of the location.
The collection featured a lot of great craftsmanship, sharp tailoring, and luxurious fabrics. Furthermore, did it offer a range of cowboy- and fisherman-inspired looks, with the “pièce de résistance” being a huge patchwork blanket made from different kinds of faux fur.
In addition to the impressive setting and great clothing, Simon and Rasmus Littauer delivered a spectacular, electronic and noise drenched soundtrack, which lifted the show to another level. At one point the music was even so loud that it made the crystal chandeliers tremble and the elderly attendees cover their ears. It was like the clash of two worlds; rock’n’roll meets 5-star hotel – and it totally worked.
