Astrid Andersen moved away from a central theme this season and made fabrics and textures the focal point of her fall collection.


The Danish designer worked materials including quilted nylons and technical fine-gauge polyamide to luxury wools and denims for her streetwear label. The collection was often playful and inventive, but occasionally had a hodgepodge feel.


Statement-making outerwear included glossy puffer jackets, quilted overcoats, some with a fur trim or patched with Linton Tweed. Coats came in a range of colors including sea foam green, olive, red, gray and black.


Overalls, sweats and tracksuit bottoms dominated the runway, some treated with Andersen’s fetish lace details. The lineup was rounded out with her signature logo shirts, sweatshirts and knits.


She plans to present her bespoke line during Paris Fashion week to press and buyers. “That’s my fur collection so we’ll be doing, like, eight fur coats,” said Andersen. “We did 16 last time in New York but this time we are scaling it down a little bit.”
