Kristian Aadnevik Fall 2012
With a spotlight that followed the models as they walked down the runway, we could only think how a spotlight needs to be kept on Kristian Aadnevik. The designer’s fall/winter collection left us breathless – shades of the season of raven black and red were met with grey and white, furs and hair were used for long gilets and dresses alike, and the stud was in full force. Entitled ‘Fenrir’ after the Norse mythological creature, the models bounded down the runway in their stiletto ankle boots with eyes perfectly done in a dark shade of eye shadow and natural, glossy lips.
The unique raven print that was emblazoned on dresses, skirts, and trains alike gave the image of a barren landscape which, in hindsight alongside the red furs, depicted nothing short of a vicious attack on our fashion hearts. The silhouette was simple, yet entirely and sexually effective; fitted dresses with high hemlines were juxtaposed against gorgeously strapless bodices with long chiffon trains. Leather ran through the collection, on arms and leggings alike, and emphasized the power that the Aadnevik woman possessed, and possesses.
A designer after our own hearts, Kristian Aadnevik’s Fall 2012 is the collection that made our hearts leap out on the front row, and made us lust after not only one fur gilet, but two.
