Iris van Herpen Fall 2014 PFW
The Iris Van Herpen Fall 2014 collection is like a gathering of structural goddesses. Shown during PFW, this designer crafts her collections like sculptures made out of clay. This line feels like the sister of her recent couture pieces, transforming into ready to wear with immense individuality. Her trademark 3-D printing is back with collaborator architect Philip Beesley. Together they’re building clothes like skyscrapers, towering to new heights and looking fabulous.
Cuts are structured and [also] flowy on dresses. The illusion of movement and sway is achieved as high collars feel futuristic. This designer makes fashionable armor, transforming into the next century with so much style. Plastic is used again on short dresses, showing that this material can be just as luxurious as silk. The standout piece has to be the second to last look…a dress that comes up and encases the head in this modern Elizabethan style. So amazing, this designer takes wearable art to a new level. Out of this world. Did you check out the girls inside the clear what looks like plastic? fdmLOVES IRIS VAN HERPEN Fall 2014 selects by Brigitte Segura, written by Allison Ripa.
