Astrid Andersen F/W 2016 Review: What The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Would Wear Today
Andersen has developed a reputation for flipping the masculine world of athletics on its head with her hyper-feminine collections. However, this recent offering feels more masculine than ever due to the combination of traditional male silhouettes with a nod to the 90’s.
One of the interesting points from this season’s iteration is just how manly it feels. Previously, Andersen has skewed towards a feminine flair with crop-tops, see-through shirts, and obvious feminine slihouettes, but this season doesn’t come loaded with these staples. Instead, it feels like a collection that could find its way back onto the backs of the very culture Andersen adores: Hip-Hop.
Astrid has been known to boast the brand’s logo prominently on clothes, but the surrounding stylings feel inspired by the full-body casual wear of the 1990’s. This presentation seems intended to be worn head-to-toe like the popular jumpsuit look of the 90’s. Also the focus on pieces like overalls, bombers, and sweats harkens back to the styling of the popular 1990’s TV Show The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. The loud and urban parts of Will Smith’s styling, in the show, feel updated in this addition to Andersen’s archives. Jump below to checkout the collection in full.
