Kristian Aadnevik’s collection for Fall/Winter 2008-9 is an attention-grabbing display of flash and color. If the stark contrast between black and fuchsia isn’t enough to make you take notice, the oversized sparkling sequins may blind you.
At just 29, the Norwegian-born designer has hit all the right notes for the season. Feathers, fringe and metallics add playful bling to the ultra-skimpy minis. Teaming the dresses with black tights, as Aadnevik has done here, makes the dresses super-sexy, yet entirely wearable.
The highlight of the collection has to be the ostrich feather-trained gowns, which are micro short in the front, and floor-length and elegant in the back.
