Andrei Amado . Grease as main theme for a fashion collection
It is common to think that the pursuit of happiness in fashion always matches a perfect silhouette, “stretch” might be the magic word for those who are obsessed by a perfect body (that not always means a perfect soul). Andrei Amado is a German fashion designer based in London, who tried to combine together fabrics with furs, the result is quite unusual but absolutely interesting. Andrei got a lot of exposure to blogs and digital media in the past months, quite weird to talk about him now since that spring is all around, but if you follow us you see that predictability is not our strong suit.
When I saw his work the last year, I never expected to see jersey leotards (closer to aerobic styles) shaping fading furs. You never know where beauty comes from and the most exciting thing is to be surprised by designers who see things in a different way, with combinations you could never imagined before.
Probably inspired by his experiences with fashion designers of the like of Marios Schwab and Tim van Steenbergen, Andrei took Olivia Newton John character as main theme for this collection, and even if the result is quite far from the black leggings who made her famous, I really see in Andrei work a perception of virgin scenarios that fashion left unexplored.
