The venue is the luxurious Hotel d’Angleterre. The hall is long and filled with one more extravagant chandelier after another. You enter a room with tattooed and well-groomed men, fur jackets and clatter from the fine silver cutlery from the model-buffet. In-between a blonde mop of hair peeks out. It’s the young Danish designer Asger Juel Larsen.
Do you have three keywords for the collection?Victorian, it has something 70s and uniforms.
What is your eternal inspiration?Military.
When are you most creative?In the evening when there aren’t too many people in the studio.
From your last show held at “Papirøen” with live metal music – to Hotel d’Angleterre – quite a strong contrast, how can that be?Because I thought it would be fun to make a crazy contrast. This collection is also very wild but in another way. It’s a little nicer, but still raw. My last collection “interrupt me” was very rebellious to the slightly more “interrupt-border way”, models with black wigs and a Swedish rock band. This time I’ve been taken it a nudge down, to show something different, but still from the same universe
