Show review Annhagen fw 2009 by Mathias Vestergaard

While AnnHagen has been all about bondage, dark rock, goth and deconstruction, mr. Simonsen is associated with luxury and couture.
A slightly deconstructed blue cocktail dress and the bondage belts and straps on the back of some nicely tailored men’s coats and leather jackets, provided a link to Annhagen as we know it. Moving on from this heritage, Simonsen had added padding on hips and shoulders, sculpting the collection’s simple black dresses and beautiful doublebreasted female office suits. Everything was beautifully cut, tailored and fitted, and although some pieces seemed a bit off, the overall impression was a new statement of beauty and elegance, cemented by a short, sexy tube dress with asymmetrical patches of fur, and a range of long evening dresses. This might not please fans of the original, moodier AnnHagen style, but for someone dressing celebrities for the red carpet, this collection had everything. If only Danish celebrities would dare to go there.
