HC: Iris Van Herpen AW13

Slide1-kopiaThe recent Iris Van Herpen couture show stays in my head till now. The Wilderness collection wasn’t just about a red gown and diamond rings. Iris is known for her futuristic, full of high technology usage dresses and fashion installations. The AW13 of Haute Couture was all about a walk in the park. But that doesn’t mean that there was anything organic here- no, the dresses were made thanks to collaboration with Jolan Van Der Wiel, that is known for…creating magnettically grown surfaces. He’ve got lots of design awards and in is portfolio the highlight is the gravity machine, but makes his wild looking furnitures one in a kind and amazing. We can find mostly stools and candle holders in his tested ready to sell objects. Slide2Slide3Talking of Iris Van Herpen, the shoes that we saw in the collection were made by United Nude and look like… real roots of a oak tree! I find the interesting because you’ve got a feeling that real roots are grwing out of the feet… My fav look of the collection is the one with the spectacular installation of birds and reptiles skeletons that of course aren’t made of real bones, but something that looks really fragile. Before meeting Iris Van Herpen’s work, I would never thought how science and technology can so much change fashion! Feeling thirsty for more of this kind of experiences!Slide5Slide4Slide6Slide7
