Kristian Aadnevik S/S 2016 LFW Catwalk Show

Kristian Aadnevik is a London based Norwegian fashion designer. Before he began designing for his own label, Kristian worked as a senior designer for Roberto Cavalli, and was selected as a protégé of Donatella Versace in the 2007 ‘Protégé Project’.

His elaborate and beautiful designs are coveted and worn by women around the world, among them celebrities like Kylie Minogue, Beyoncé, Rihanna, Selena Gomez, Pixie Lott and Dita von Teese.

Kristian’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection ‘Sanctus Hortum’ is inspired by the wild roses of the English countryside and was presented in the sumptuous and flower-filled surroundings of one of the Victorian rooms of the Royal Horseguards Hotel during London Fashion Week.

Kristian says that the idea for the collection started with a family road trip exploring the English National Trust Gardens, especially the rose gardens. “What made us connect with the wild roses was their pure natural beauty and the sharp protecting stems of thorns. Nature’s virtuous beauty with the blood reminding us of the dark sins of the beasts – we dream under the trees of a thornless world. The garden reminds us of the innocence and beauty of a child and the unity and love of us as a family”.

The collection contrasts the romantic and fragile against the wild and amorous – soft printed chiffon – partly transparent – flowers and lace give the collection a floaty, ethereal feel, but the creations are at the same time restrained with exotic leathers like python, and pearls, embroidery and boning to give them structure. Natural and pastel colours dominate and the light green, pink, peach, light blue, gold, pearl and black dresses, both short and flirty or long and floating are tied onto the delicate skin leaving the flowers blowing in the breeze.
