We introduce A.A. Spectrum - the future has come.
A. A. Spectrum is an outerwear-focused brand whose designs incorporate both minimalist and futuristic aesthetics. The brand is a cross-cultural collaboration between Copenhagen and Beijing.
Its full name, however – A. A. Spectrum 光谱 – takes from Chinese and English, and stands for “All About Spectrum”. At its core, a spectrum is something extremely diverse, which is why it’s open to interpretation. When the brand’s founder, Ying, visited her sister in America in 2008, she heard something that would later shape the path she would pursue, “Well, it is not always black and whitebut all about the spectrum.” And so came to life the idea to create something groundbreaking.
When designing new pieces, the brand always opts for uncommon shapes and then tries to bring them from sketches to life. The designs draw inspiration from Chinese culture – for example, they feature the colours of blue porcelain or the bricks of the Great Wall. The A. A. Spectrum pieces are extremely oversized – the brand’s catalogue features both quilted and down-filled designs that are perfect for winter. Their high-grade details – such as straps, hooks or drawstrings – not only constitute the hallmark of streetwear, but also help clothes withstand demanding weather conditions. The brand combines the two most important features of clothing – style and functionality.
