Anne Sofie Madsen has continued to put Danish style at the forefront of the fashion world. After graduating from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design in 2010 she immediately went on to get to work building her own label in 2011. Anne Sofie has already had some major experience, working for both the houses of John Galliano in Paris and Alexander McQueen in Loondon before returning to show her first show for her Spring Summer 2012 capsule collection in Denmark during Copenhagen Fashion Week. Alongside the influences of her experience with these high fashion houses, you can also see some Rei Kawakubo as well as the Danish masters Martin Margiela and Ann Demeulemeester in her high-fashion-meets-commercial sensibility. Anne Sofie is quickly becoming a favourite in Paris shows.
This Anne Sofie Madsen Resort collection for 2016 also plays with gender-based stereotypes in fashion; the woman is supposed to be both inviting as well as out of reach. She uses generally prescribed masculine details and textiles to create ultimately feminine pieces. Tough yet fragile, hard yet soft. This can be seen in the structured leather dresses with delicate floral details and the oversized take on the trench coat which opens to expose a top with floral embroidery.
Here are the shots of the Anne Sofie Madsen Resort 2016 collection.
