Nu har det trillat in lite recensioner från förra helgens visning i London. Uppenbarligen har min tanke med kollektionen gått fram. Bra. Så alltså, dags att tänka nytt kring eco-fashion, dags att gräva fram det som finns i soptunnan, se potentialen i det vi avfärdar som skräp eller blundar inför. Världen är full av plast, sopbergen växer. Tänk nytt. Tänk bättre. (Re) agera.
Fashion 156 on Anna Lidström:
"Of the MA collections, Anna Lidstrom’s designs stood out for their unique manipulation of industrial materials that challenged expectation. A beautifully cut suit made from refuse-sack plastic gave the impression of ‘found’ material, whilst foam and gaffa tape bracelets took ordinary objects and re-invented them as directional accessories. Foam, cardboard and even rubber were also used – with a pleated, cardboard a-line skirt standing out as a craftsmanship triumph. Vivid colours were introduced in the form of a vibrant blue foam jacket, colour-blocked against a pillar-box red voluminous plastic skirt and rubber and metal coiled necklaces completed the looks"
Samantha Farr on Anna Lidström:
“Woven plastic crinkled suits, transparent polyethylene smock dresses, hosepipe necklaces and cardboard bangles. Artificial imitations of natural materials were the basis for this imposing collection. Industrial materials were juxtaposed against the femininity of shape and flesh. The versatility of unorthodox materials was showcased as the designer addressed the issue of chemical innovation in fashion. The wonderfully named ‘Fraud Matters’ collection was a witty interpretation of eco luxury”
Chloe Sexton on Anna Lidström:
"One of the most intriguing collections was that of Anna Lidstrom, who used industrial materials to create a thought provoking collection, questioning our usage of materials. A trouser suit was created out of bin liners, and yet because of the incredible tailoring, it almost took on the appearance of patent leather. Red plastic sheeting was manipulated, to create a voluminous dress, and paired with a blue jacket crafted from foam. Cardboard was pleated to create a stiff A-Line skirt, that took on the appearance of a lampshade, and with jewellery made from gaffer tape, coiled metal and polystyrene, Lidstrom managed to create a haute couture collection from the mundane"
