2016 was another year of accomplishments for Astrid Andersen, the Danish-born designer whose pieces marry the sensibilities of athleisure with the precision of tailoring, the swagger of hip-hop, and the silhouettes of haute couture. Andersen’s 2016-2017 collections continued to elevate casualwear and sportswear silhouettes, using luxurious fabrics and innovative construction. 2016 also marked a significant first in Andersen’s career: her 2017 presentation included her first foray into womenswear, wherein calf-socks, slides and billowy basketball shorts sat subversively on the hips of feminine models. Cosigns from hip-hop insiders like A$AP Mob members Rocky and Ferg and a soundtrack that included A Tribe Called Quest only further solidified the London-based designer’s street credibility.
