post human speed

True to her distinctive couture-inspired approach, gifted
Danish illustrator and designer Anne Sofie Madsen
reinforces the unearthed Barbie dolls of her previous s/s
collection (here) through more structured yet playful outfits
making use both of traditional handcraft and couture techniques.

Madsen came to showcase her almost black & white s/s 2014
collection, called 'Post Human Speed' which is all played through
contrasts and materials, at Copenhagen fashion week revealing
unforeseen boxy leather jackets that look suitable for cross-country
racing paired with bold print patterns and metal accessories.
Madsen's signature dresses once again feature digital prints
made from her own handmade illustrations in a clever mix
of proportions, cuts and materials. Oversized arms, built-up
collars and fastening cords generate armor-like clothes with
references to the female warriors of Japanese manga while
leather is embossed or experimentally applied to a fine mesh
base.The budding talent who caught the eye of 
John Galliano and Alexander McQueen is briskly 
becoming a fully fledged designer.
