Â»leather + plastic + 3d printing Â«
Looking through iris van herpenâ€™s 10 piece collection i realized that I hadnâ€™t seen anything so awe-inspiring + almost drool-worthy since mary katrantzou broke into the fashion industryâ€¦and that was quite a while ago. Unsurprisingly, the 26-year old has worked with behemoths of the fashion industry; victor and rolf + the late alexander mcqueen. However, her work not only emanates nuances of the latter, but also that of sandra backlund and ann demeulemeester. Theyâ€™ve got that whole multiplying factor going onâ€¦the repetitive detailing and structure is such that you get lost in your own little sphere of thought. The above photos are part of her â€˜crystallizationâ€™ collection. Â It is overwhelming + all synonyms of that word itself, and therefore something I could stare at on a daily basis. Absolut delicious. And like her previous collections (synesthesia aw10-11/ radiation invation/mummification/refinery smoke/chemical crows/ fragile futurity), â€˜crystallizationâ€™ manipulates/contradicts the bodyâ€™s contours, coats it in a seamless armor of peek-a-boo lines, and compels her audience to wonder at the time, craft, and effort that went into these one piece creations. There are no duplicates. Depressing. But her shoe supplier for this and earlier collections, Rem D Koolhaas, creative director of United Nude will be releasing 240 of the kid leather boots, 168 in black and 72 in ivory; previewed in her synesthesia aw10-11 collectionâ€¦Would the kind souls out there please come forward? kidding. Anyways, I was just searching up on iris and found out that she: (1.) came from ArtEZ Art Academy, and (2.) is presently working on costumes for Giacomo Pucciniâ€™s â€œMadama Butterfly.â€ Itâ€™s premiering on the 5th Sept at the OsnabrÃ¼ck Theater. I cannot actually wait to see what elements she welds together for this.
psssssstttt: Iris van Herpen/United Nude ankle boots will soon be available from exclusive retailers and United Nude concept stores in Amsterdam, New York, Shanghai and Vienna. stay posted.
