We meet Kristian Aadnevik couple hours before his runway show for Riccovero at OFW for a quick talk.
-So Kristian, this is your third line for Riccovero, what is the difference between your line for Riccovero and your own fashion line?
-This is more commercial clothing, everybody can find something they like and it is more affordable.
Kristian does not feel like it conflicts with his own creative wishes for his clothing. He collaborates with Riccovero’s designers, but still is given a lot of room of creativity. After all he is Kristian Aadnevik and celebs like Rihanna and Madonna are not wearing his clothes for nothing.
The expectations were high: we’re talking about the Norwegian designer king of sexy rock’n roll chick.
-I always have very high expectations of Kristian. His clothes are very sexy, yet glamorous and edgy, says Signy Fardal, Editor in Chief for Elle Magazine.
-We are used to see a lot of extravaganza from Aadnevik, but today he seems to have played more safe than we are used to. It was somewhat more Riccovero than a Kristian Aadnevik touch to it.
Signy states that this is only being because she is used to Kristians brilliance and therefor the aim is higher.
The collection was somewhat true to Aadneviks rock’n roll style: black studded dresses came passing by at the runway accompanied by the tunes of rock’n roll, but somehow it was missing some of the x-factor that has market Aadnevik as the top designer he truly is.
That being said, the Riccovero collection is meant for a more commercial market than Kristian Aadneviks own collection that has yet to be shown at London fashion week in September.
And for that one we’re expecting Kristian Aadnevik to surprise with new expressions of ultra-sexy rock’ roll.
