Aigner Fall/Winter 2018 Collection - Wunderkammer
December 23, 2018
Each bag, watch or accessory creation tells the story of its origin and unifies contrasts into one cohesive design to satisfy all tastes.
How does the expression go: Miracles keep happening! But what AIGNER presented during the Fashion Week in Milan was no miracle but simply excellent, as expected. This is because with the new Fall/Winter 2018 Collection, AIGNER created something as appropriate for our current times as the cabinets of wonder (or cabinets of curiosities), which Creative Director Christian Alexander Beck was inspired by, were in the Late Renaissance and the Baroque period.
These precursors of today's museums contained objects of different origins and purposes. This resulted in exciting contrasts between the familiar and the unfamiliar, the real and the surreal as well as between opulence and minimalism.
The new season‘s AIGNER ‘Wunderkammer’ is also a collection of contrasts. Prints and embroidery from distant lands and ocelot patterns meet clean shapes and surfaces. Materials are mixed or intricate details combined with rough fittings and metal parts. Intensive colors such as ‘Persian Blue’, ‘Amber Orange’, ‘Scarlet Red’ and ‘Olive Green’ serve as counterpales to muted tones such as ‘Linen White’, ‘Burgundy’, ‘Camel Beige’ and ‘Clay Brown’. The combination adds a mystical touch to the collection and skillfully reflects the ‘Wunderkammer’ theme.
