During Copenhagen fashion week, the Anne Sofie Madsen S/S 2012 collection stole the show with its beautiful Japanese details and craft work on fabrics. Delicate dresses are adorned with the faces of fierce samurais and chunky jewelry. This gorgeous lookbook showcases the designer's great skills and traditions of a legendary culture.
The diverse influences including Japanese, ballet and animation, creates princess-like ensembles that are elegant and dainty. The designer explains, "It is as a meeting between a mechanical ballerina and a graceful samurai.” This multiple-genre fusion happened because the designer found inspiration in European ballet costumes and mixed it with the "late Muromachi period of Japan," resulting in a stunning collection.
The Anne Sofie Madsen S/S 2012 collection is a combination of many looks that enhance the feminine shape and highlight one's strong power within.
