LFW – Adam Andrascik presents S/S 2013 collection at the Royal Society of the Arts
The final day of London Fashion Week drew crowds to the Royal Society of the Arts for a rather special presentation of the Adam Andrascik spring/summer 2013 collection. In a quaint room at the back of the building, Adam displayed modern, monochrome garments that were minimalistic but completely effective.
Adam, who got into the industry by accident, has so far taken us down a very interesting and creative fashion path. The new collection draws inspiration from the 1960s and its statement couture shapes. For spring/summer 2013, Adam has managed to take a simple idea and turn it into an exploration of womenswear design. Further ideas have been taken from the work of Lucio Fontana’s “slashed” canvases, with design structures being reinvented in unpredicted ways. Satin has been combined with knitwear and leather, resulting in a collection of tailored suiting and outerwear that has transformed that feminine form.
White and black prevailed the whole collection, with an added touch of yellow from a delicate skirt to break up the subtle palette choice. Each piece screamed simplicity, but intricate attention to the finish of the garments allowed Adam to present distinctive personality in each piece.
