The Astrid Andersen x Topman collection is an exciting collaboration. The 17-piece capsule collection is made up of luxurious streetwear featuring Andersen's signature oversized silhouettes.

Even though he stuck to a simple color palette of white, black and pink, Andersen ensured the collection was bold and eye-catching. The colors were accentuated by using a variety of fabrics, as well as copper foil and metalwork. The stand-out piece in the collection is an oversized crushed velvet tracksuit in a striking shade of carnation pink. Other interesting pieces include mesh T-shirts, neoprene bomber jackets and vests and funnel necked sweaters.

Hip-hop artist A$AP Ferg was tapped to model the collection in New York. Ferg and Andersen have a mutual appreciation for one another's work, making Ferg an obvious choice.
