Lærke Andersen SS17 collection now in stores

Den unge danske designer Lærke Andersen lancerer netop nu sin SS17 kollektion.

Kollektionen tager udgangspunkt i det engelske ord ”closures”, der på dansk kan oversættes direkte til lukninger. Denne inspiration kom fra poet og samfundskritikker Yayha Hassan, og hans optræden på dansk TV iført en sølvfarvet skudsikkervest under en sort jakke. Dette skøre dog stilfulde outfit vagte opsigt hos designeren, hvilket kollektionen tydeligt bærer præg af. Lærke Andersen bevæger sig i grænselandet mellem det klassiske og mere sporty look, og visionen bag det unge modebrand er at bryde grænserne mellem de feminine og maskuline, samt det funktionelle og det luksuriøse.

Ved denne vinters Lala Berlin show stod budskabet klart: Showet var en kritisk kommentar til en af verdens mest aktuelle brændpunkter, nemlig flygtningekrisen og den stramme indvandringspolitik vi i høj grad ser i flere europæiske lande.

Designer, Leung Ka Kin, 4. februar 2016, Copenhagen Fashion Week AW16
Fra allerførste gang showet Fashion Hong Kong blev fremvist under den københavnske modeuge, har det været en fryd for øjet at se noget anderledes ned ad scenen. Noget der er anderledes end de andre danske eller nordiske modehuse under ugens forløb. Endnu en gang bidrog Fashion Hong Kong med diversitet på podiet (med tre designere fra Hong Kong). Blandt dem var designer Hr. Leung Ka Kin debutant til på den Europæiske- og københavnske catwalk.

From the very first time the show Fashion Hong Kong has been held at Copenhagen Fashion Week it has been a pleasure to see something different down the catwalk. Something different from the other Danish or Nordic fashion houses during the fashion week in Copenhagen. Once again the Fashion Hong Kong show (with 3 Hong Kong-nese designers) offered some diversity down the catwalk. Among those where Mr. Leung Ka Kin designer and debutant to the European and Copenhagen catwalk.

INTERVIEW WITH LEUNG KA KIN (ENG) backstage after the show, Copenhagen City Hall

Why have you invested in the Danish Copenhagen scene of fashion? 
‘’Actually I quite like this place!’’ ‘’This is my first time here’’ I’m interested in the Danish market, because I think Danes dress very stylish, but at the same time they have their own personality… that’s why I want to show my collection here’’
How do you feel about the feedback?
‘’The feedback is quite positive!’’ ‘’My collection is quite different from the other two designers and do have very strong characters and also have some appeal for the youth’’
What have been the main source inspiration of the collection?
‘’The inspiration mainly comes from the military and work wear, but I’ve also been inspired by a New York based artist and his art installation which mainly is made of wood and some acrylics together with cutting details created in the wood hence to my collection.’’ ‘’The illusions from my styles are from this inspiration’’
What have been the biggest challenge of your collection?
‘’The biggest challenge have been to make the styles’’ ‘’It has been comprehensive because most of the military or work wear styles have been made in green and blue colour, but and also how to use the colours in our own way’’
