ALL IS FULL OF LOVE – Björk echoes through the Palazzo Reale Milano while dozens of Models of all ethnicities strut down the AIGNER Runway. The ancient walls are suddenly filled with joy and free spirit, spreading the idea of a bright future.
In times where the News are dictated by terror, violence and injustice, where we tend to judge someone over their Social Media following without even knowing the person, where people prefer to fast-consume information rather than connecting over a cup of coffee, where we like/rate the unwearable, the unthinkable, the fiction – every take on positivity feels like a breath of fresh air.
Individual Liberty / Freedom of expression / Progress / Happiness
With the Fall/Winter 2019 collection, Creative Director Christian Alexander Beck takes the core ideas of the Age of Enlightenment (a philosophical movement during the 18th century) and transforms it into wearable statements. Just like with the Dada SS19 collection he enjoyed playing with contrasts and rebellion.
ALL IS FULL OF VARIETY. All kinds of layering – not only clothes but also bags, beautifully stacked and dangling in all kinds of shapes and sizes. Mini bags, leather belt bags, vintage suitcase inspired totes, tiny chain bags… there is one for every taste. Sleek leather, shiny sequins, stingray or (faux snake) – the variety is endless.
The individuality can also be found in the clothes. Sheer dresses paired with XL wool coats (I’m still dreaming of this stunning creme number), leather jackets with manly overknee boots, puffer coats and moto cycle jackets layered over blanket coats and airy gowns.
ALL IN ALL one of my favorite Aigner collections to date. Incredibly confident, wearable and modern. With a good dose of positive spirit or, like Björk would say: twist your head around / it’s all around you / all is full of love / all around you
