Seeing the new Autumn/Winter 2013 collection from AG Adriano Goldschmied was the highlight of my day when I was in London doing the press day rounds. I have to say that it was my favourite collection out of all of the brands that I saw, although I am very fond of the brand in general. They have an amazing coming season though, as you can see from the photos.
I liked so many jeans from the collection, almost all of them, but the two that stood out as my favourites and pairs that I am going to buy are The Absolute Legging in coated burgundy (image 2) and The Ankle Legging in 18 Year Dust (image just below or 15 in the gallery). The coated burgundy ones are gorgeous! The colour was just so dark, they are so wearable! I wasn’t expecting to see many light washes for Fall either, but the 18 Year Dust had so many amazing details to it, it was truly beautiful. These two have been added to my wish list!
In terms of the collection as a whole, I think AG did it perfectly. Usuaully we see loads of prints and fashionable styles and a little bit of blues, or the other way around, however AG had a good mix of both. They had a couple of fun prints like the black and white in images 7 and 8 and some embossed denim (image 5), some gorgeous gold and silver metallic leggings (images 11 and 12) mixed in with some reptile print and Aztec red (images 18 and 19). These all stood out as statement pieces to me and I can see them being so popular among the celebs! The brand also had some jewel tone colours, in both denim and a corduroy/velvet material which you can also see and I thought those really reminded me of the colder months.
Transitioning into the classics from the brand, they had The Moto Legging which came in dark coated green and a regular grey denim. These had 2 hip zippers and a subtle knee stitching without any padding, so I can see them being quite slimming and flattering, rather than bulky as some quilted styles can be. They had many of their Legging, Stilt, Premiere and other classic cuts in amazingly washed blues, which AG are famous for. You can see an array of those in images 15, 16 and 17. They also had a really nice denim shirt/jacket style piece in there as well. I thought that was really wearable and pretty.
The last 2 images in the gallery (20 and 21) are from the men’s collection, however I didn’t take a lot of photos of it as it was mainly all blues. It was very subtle, very standard and a lot like the other collections AG usually offer around Winter time, so there weren’t really any stand out pieces there. They did have a lot of shirting and t-shirts though as you can see, so I’m sure we will be seeing some of those on the male celebs soon! In general it was an amazing collection and I can’t wait for the pieces to drop into stores later in the year. If you have any questions just let me know in the comments. What do you think of it?
