The Anne Sofie Madsen SS14 collection that recently debuted at Copenhagen Fashion Week plays up mostly black and white elements, emulating the lines and patterns of a graphic novel.
Although the collection takes cues from Japanese manga and animation, which can be quite sweet, the garments take on a tough aesthetic. The name of the collection is 'Post-Human Speed,' which embodies Transformer-like shapes that break up the body into robot-like segments and overly-accentuate some body parts like torsos and arms. One all-black garment has grille-like detailing like you'd find on a car.
The gorgeous collection captures the beauty of the animated style with the ferocity and power of a human-machine hybrid. Alike a graphic novel, these garments manage to capture all the dynamism of a graphic novel without at all being flat.
