Kristian Aadnevik

Gawking over these pieces from Kristian's S/S 09 collection has officially confirmed that fluorescent colors totally have the potential to be worn elegantly and without looking like I'm on my way to some sort of rave. Quite frankly, I've never been one to lust over anything multi-colored, patterned, overly bold etc., but now I sit here in a quiet room imagining the cobalt blue bandage dress with an army green fur-trimmed parka, opaque tights, and an oversized clutch- which could possibly qualify as the perfect ensemble for a random dinner date with my boyfriend. 

I definitely think Mr. Aadnevik's collection deserves a little recognition for the way he combined elements such as delicate chiffon dresses with structured leather bodices and metallic armor-like embellishments. He's done such an incredible job of convincing me that crazily bright colors are indeed precious, and for that, he holds a special place in my heart.

Kimberley said...

The multi-colored bandage dress is fantastic. The dichotomy between delicate and tough is very inspiring.

Speaking of parkas, have you seen any good ones about the place? I have been searching high and low for months but have yet to find one that isn't so hoedown-on-the-farm-style.

Cheers! x

Merelda said...

totally agree...cobalt blue is a-m-a-z-i-n-g!! never thought of it can be worn so elegantly, thanks for sharing :)

The Barely Tattoo'd Artist said...

I like the one on top, far right...with the longer sleeves and all...but with a bubble hem and my booty, it just wouldn't mix...

But I do love all the shoes and wish to have them someday...

Caroline Krager said...

I totally agree with you and think Kristian designs amazing clothes! The reason most people haven't heard of him is probably because he is Norwegian, and people don't usually hear so much about us;) Your blog is my absolute favorite, Karla!! Have a nice weekend!

"Robby" said...

I love that black dress... I cant get outta black. lol. The others are great examples of how to look chic in color though....

This surprisingly makes me want to wear cobalt and other bright blues, which I stay away from usually. I do not like (love) blue on me. But now am inspired! Thanks Karla!
