Astrid Wilson, illustrator and artist, has with her magical patterns, colourful clothing, big details and her humble smile swept us off our feet. We are therefore extra pleased that behind Hidden Capsules AW19 we can introduce an exciting collab with her. Astrid’s feeling for colours and patterns and the combination between them is exactly what #bubblesforeveryday is about: to have the courage to be personal and to go for it. The collection ByON x Astrid Wilson is a tribute to the 90s but also an anticipation of the 2020s. An anticipation that will bring forward a new strength and which is boosting the power in our making a difference together, creating magic and the courage to change the world around us on the inside as well as the outside.
This collection is energy. It dares to take up space and reminds us of the strength in having the courage to create more joy, more warmth and personal pizazz. Clear contrasts and colour-intense products with undefined shapes is what characterizes the collection which gives us an amazing party feeling every day. It reminds us that we should grab the opportunity to reconsider and enhance that freedom with strong tones and patterns.
For sure life is so much more glorious in an explosion of colours. Here Astrid has produced patterns which are her spot-on combination of the disco-happy 90s and the new decennium we now move into. Women with clear motives and strong personalities provide the collection with lots of power and a warm feeling filled with grace. 2020s – we’re ready for you!
