Fashion Scout » Louise Amstrup

PUBLISHED IN:


Envision the cuts and artistry of today’s Balenciaga with a more cheeky approach to print and color. That’s Louise Amstrup. The Danish-born, London-based designer just showed her best – and dare we say most imaginative – collection to date for her eponymous line. Known for striking, offbeat ready-to-wear, Amstrup advanced her work with absurdly cool anthropomorphic prints. Bathing beauties with chameleon heads and swan centaurs graced superbly constructed separates.

Her bold hues and textures were a visual feast this season, too. Amstrup punctuated her surreal prints by color blocking with kiwi green, electric pink and metallic blush tones. And she used color gradation nicely on a few pieces, too. One of the best looks was a dazzling handwoven plastic skirt with a hot pink floral swath of fabric peeking from the waist and topped with a matching floral bustier midriff top. Styled with sick sunglasses by Zanzan, classic black platform pumps rimmed in copper by Camilla Skovgaard, and wide brim linen hats in collaboration with Noel Stewart…we’re thinking Nicolas Ghesquière better watch his back!
