Martin Asbjørn in Copenhagen Fashion Week 2021
On Wednesday, February 3, in the middle of the most important Danish fashion week (February 2 – February 5), Martin Asbjørn presents his Autumn/Winter 2021 collection at Copenhagen Fashion Week with his sensual and bold scheme of shapes and colors.
We all know how fashion week can get popular and glamorous in our own scenarios, especially the ones set in Milan, Paris, and New York. However, there are other cities and a huge realm of small and medium fashion houses that are part of the fashion ecosystem. One of these brands is Martin Asbjørn. His collection this year was “Like the Deserts Miss the Rain“.
Martin is famous for his buoyant and bold color palette. This year’s collection counts 46 pieces. Every piece explores its own inspirational source with a minimal and modern interpretation. The Danish house took the decision to bring a variety of boxy textures and pale colors, allocated within strong hues and sharp cuts.
Some of the shirts recall a 70s vibe mixed with a house pop 90s style. Leather is key to the brand, as well as minimal textile expriments. Two of these works can be seen in the faux ocelot print shearling coat along with the printed anime-inspired prints created in an exclusive collaboration with Chilean tattoo artist Cristian Garcia.
Styling was curated directly by Martin Asbjørn, with the help of Nicolaj Didriksen (photography), Martin Andersen (model from Scoop Models), William Skou Boksa (hair and make up), Kevin Pfaf (Art Direction and Design)
”My collections always have a sense of escapism running through them but this time I really wanted to design for better days,” says the designer.
Martin goes beyond traditional tailoring by giving more space to a free-flowing structure to the human body. In this way, he provides agility and flexibility to contemporary silhouettes. The brand’s signature relies on both casual and classic leisurewear for women, men, and non-binary people.
