Anne Sofie Madsen’s show was the one thing right on top of my list this season. Her illustrations have been a huge inspiration to me when I was still studying art and so – as you can imagine – I was hyped when she was announced as one of the designers showing in Tokyo with the DHL exported program.
Her collection was breathtaking and I was especially fascinated with her use of volumes versus light and airy pieces, which overall merged into an incredibly serene and balanced collection.
After the show I participated in an interview with Anne Sofie Madsen herself. She talked about her inspiration for this collection, which she said was the fact that Elvis Presley was born as a twin-less twin and all his life he was without his counterpart. This reflects very well in her work, as some of her pieces are so deconstructed in every detail, they seem to be only waiting for their counterparts to piece them together again.
The fact that Elvis’ great grandmother was Native American is also subsequently visible in folkloric Elements here and there.
