KRISTIAN AADNEVIK SPRING / SUMMER 2014 SHOW
“Look out on a land of mists and mysteries; a land of trailing silver veils through which domes and minarets, mighty towers and ramparts of flushed stone, hot palm groves and Atlas snows, peer and disappear at the will of the Atlantic cloud drifts.” – Edith Wharton, In Morocco
Introducing the Kristian Aadnevik’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection.
This season’s inspiration derives from the ornate, majestic architecture of Morocco and the mysterious landscapes of the surrounding desert.
Kristian evokes the diversity of this rich landscape and culture by fusing together detailed exotic, alluring shades and lavish embellishments, with the more ruinous earthen tones. Amidst the sultry sandy hues there is a smattering of dewy greens representing a lush oasis.
To depict the wild mountainous habitat, Aadnevik has used luxury skins such as python and lizard, intermixed with a wide spherical detailed lace to adorn the garments, representing the scales of a reptile.
The billowing lengths of chiffon and jersey have been conceived to embody the undulations of the swirling sand dunes. This is drastically contrasted with textural layering, created to replicate the dryer, more cracked barren grounds of this striking scenery.
In keeping with the label’s themes of light on dark, Kristian has again incorporated an edge to his feminine designs, with the use of oversized studs, exposed zips and copious amounts of leather.
Like a mirage in the desert, this collection is timeless. Aadnevik has combined the traditional and the contemporary, like the mythic lands of Morocco, which steal your sense of time and place.
