Astrid Andersen presented a sporty collection for Fall/Winter 2013 season at MAN. The theme is extreme vanity as a sport. “The sprinter has the time to race against. The weightlifter has the weights. The bodybuilder only has the mirror.”
MAN is the joint initiative between Topman and Fashion East (the non-profit organisation established by Lulu Kennedy MBE and the Old Truman Brewery in 2000). MAN spearheaded London Fashion Week’s menswear schedule in 2005 and proudly champions emerging menswear talent. Designers are selected by a panel of buyers, stylists and journalists including Nicola Formichetti, Charlie Porter and Tim Blanks. Each season these young designers receive a bursary, catwalk show-production, PR support and expert advice to help them launch their labels.
