Autumn begins a time when fashion can start to become edgy, and there is a distinct movement away from bright colors, however Anne Sophie Madsen's F/W 2013 took her collection not only to dark colors, but also to dark places.
Mixing both causal and evening wear, Madsen's collection was truly a paradox. It was a full monochromatic show, and the pops of white were the breaks in between a sea of blacks and grays. Stunning pieces with a rebellious vibe strutted down the runway, accompanied by horns on the models' heads.
The homage to a devilish creature was apparent through the vacant looks in the models eyes, the terrifying creatures on the clothes, the horns and the replica fangs. This was truly an original collection; not only were the clothes stunning, but the atmosphere was intense. Anne Sophie Madsen's F/W collection has perfectly mixed good and evil, and brought the sides together for an amazing showing.
