CPHFW caught up with the creative mind behind Lovechild 1979, Anne-Dorthe Larsen as she prepares for fashion week. They chatted about the week to come, her inspiration, dreams and her upcoming collection.
What is the best thing about designing for the AW-season?
The best thing about designing for AW season is the fabrics, I love the heavy wool used for outerwear.
Could you give us three keywords that describe your upcoming collection?
Playfull, sophisticated, love.
How would you describe your design aesthetics?
My design aesthetics is about making the collection wearable and timeless. I always try to make the collection look simple but still very feminine, with a use of beautiful fabrics and lots of colors.
What is your favorite piece from your AW17 collection?
My favorite piece form the AW collection is a mens inspired coat, it comes both in navy wool and in check wool. I just love outerwear, and this one is made to last.
How does this collection differ from your earlier collections?
The collection differs from my other collections, by being more complete, we are doing denim, shoes, and bags.
My favorite collections is winter, but my favorite show season is summer, the light makes all people smile more, and the show feels more like a party.
The first thing I will do after Copenhagen Fashion week, is to help my staff pack the SS17 production to the customers. I love to see what the customers purchased for the season.
