On March 3, 2015 at Fondation Mona Bismarck (34 Avenue de New York, Paris 16e), Danish designer Anne Sofie Madsen returned to Paris Fashion Week to present her latest Fall/Winter 2015 collection, which is titled “Days of Future Past.” You might think about that X-Men movie with 1970s fashion, but Ms. Madsen’s latest collection is much more than that.

She described this Fall/Winter 2015 collection as “a place between an unmemorable past and an unimaginable future….the contrasts between something other worldly and misplaced but at the same time familiar and well known.” Time traveling is a big theme for this collection, with intriguing combinations of both futuristic and mechanical elements.

Continuing her momentum from her impressive debut on Paris Fashion Week last season, Ms. Madsen masterfully mixed different techniques and materials that seemed haphazard at first. But upon more viewing, they become increasingly beautiful and invoke more coherent thoughts of appreciation. These are innovative, strong, and bold designs materialized.

It seemed dizzying at first; the hand weaving, patchwork pleating, embroidery, blurred hand painted illustrations splattered on leather, cashmere, hand painted silk and mink fur…it was a masterfully done juxtapositions done on garments; ladylike and tomboyish, effortlessness and over dressed.

Anne Sofie Madsen Fall/Winter 2015 collection also features several design collaborations. She collaborates with fellow Danish designer Maria Black showcased her latest jewelry collection THE CODE, and she also teams up with Italian brand Farewell to create a special co-branded footwear full print collection. Moreover, she works with Aristide to produce gloves with a robotic style and slightly futuristic feel.

With these increased excitement for Anne Sofie Madsen, it’s no surprise that the designer is gaining more and more fans and followers. I’m one of such fans, and I’m really happy for featuring her again in this blog!
