Notion favourite Asger Juel Larsen showed just why he’s a Notion favourite with this season’s offering – as a double bill with T.Lipop and the last show of LFW SS12. Kicking off with motorbike revs, the collection showed a strong Berlin clubber-vive, with Metal influences, patent creeper-boots and full-print outfits. Teutonic goth outfits were given a sneaky twist with leather shorts and glitter-covered DMs, while tailoring was slim and punk-inspired; heavy metal applique patches abounded; radicals being the most obvious reference point. Taking a death-metal influence to its most logical conclusion, the showstoppers were the silver spiked metal beard-pieces, they might not exactly be perfect for a pint down the pub with the lads, but they were definitely distinctive, in a very good way. Asymmetric zips, sheers and leopard-print completed a collection that stayed true to Asger’s punk roots. We like.
