Born in Norway but resident in England, the young designer produces her luxury collection in Spain
A tribute to legendary photographer Helmut Newton, the autumn-winter 2013-14 collection from Aase Hopstock, a young Norwegian designer who got her degree with top marks from Cordwainers College of London, following in the footsteps of Charlotte Olympia, Nicholas Kirkwood and Jimmy Choo. «Each model is inspired by a particular shot of Newton’s, with special emphasis on the atmosphere of “Le Smoking”, the photo of the famous YSL creation» – explains Aase who after studying and before launching her eponymous brand in 2011, worked for some years with the extraordinary British designer Tracey Neuls. Very feminine and luxurious, Aase’s style also has a characteristic playful touch. The new collection is composed of 19 models featuring six different constructions, including boots of various lengths, pumps with rounded platforms, sophisticated evening sandals and whimsical peep-toes. The colour range is dominated by brilliant blacks, shiny platinum, magenta and navy blue. Softest leathers and padded insoles guarantee comfort in a line made entirely by a small artisan family firm located in Elda, Spain.
