Aigner’s fall / winter 2013 collection was one of those that lulled you into thinking it was all safe shapes and modest cuts, and all the while the bold details and sexy points of differentiation were sneaking up on you until BAM: you were left looking at a plunging keyhole or entirely backless gown wondering if you were still watching the same show that started with a dress cut to the mid-calf.
The progression was all the more discernable on the Milan fashion week catwalk – it’s safe to say the photos don’t do the show-stopping numbers justice, especially where cutaway backs are concerned – but that’s not to say that either end of the spectrum was undesirably extreme. The demure outfits snuck over the line into being interesting by way of leather accents, printed silks, and sudden bursts of vibrant colour. Stand-out winter whites, worn alone or paired with soft metallic lace, were the most bewitching manifestation of the collection’s theme – An Iceland Story. Christian Beck was inspired by Nordic myths and fantasy film classics of the ’80s like The Dark Crystal, Labyrinth and The Never Ending Story, and it shone through best and brightest in those daytime whites and magical evening dresses.
The finishing touch to all of Aigner’s fall outfits: the accessories. Bags, boots, jewellery and belts all melding with the theme and standing out in defined signature shapes.
