Andrea Karg's Allude FW15-16 luxury cashmere collection is a synthesis of craftsmanship and technology, emphasizing the intensity of materials. Felted cashmere, coarse and Jacquard knits are combined with Jacquard patterned fake fur to create a feminine yet strong collection.
Compact fabrics provide density to the silhouettes, and structures are interrupted through contrasting materials. Classic winter colors are combined with unusual color combinations ranging from beige, rose, pale blue, lush dark green and black to rusty red and brown defining a unique color palette.
"The new collection re-interprets femininity in an original visual language, experimenting with materialism by processing cashmere in a multitude of ways to play with the silhouette. A key element to the collection is the volant - I specifically wanted to express the movement and flow of the cashmere through the motion of the wearer.
This collection is a statement of intent, don't succumb to the pressure and look beyond. Use your experience and live for the moment. Allude is about self- confidence to feel the very best every day." Proclaimed Andrea Karg at the unveiling of her spectacular new collection.
The brand is based in Munich and was founded in 1993 by Andrea Karg. Allude creates luxury knits with a modern attitude to life with its women's, men's, children's and home collections. Allude is available in the best boutiques and department stores in more than 30 countries. Among its fans are Jane Birkin, Sophie Marceau, Nico Robberg and Moritz Bleibtreu.
"I can't change the world, but I can make it a bit more pleasant". Continued Andrea Karg, expressing a simple yet profound look at life from the eyes of one of the most talented fashion designers.
