Iris Van Herpen Couture: The Fashion Of The Future

iris-van-herpen-005

Inspired by the desire to understand, control and recreate the idea of light, the Iris Van Herpen Haute Couture show was suggestively entitled ”Voltage”, and delivered a powerful visual impact.

While a living sculpture placed in the middle of the room diffused rays of purple light that seemed to go through its interior, the runway was flooded with carefully sculpted silhouettes, that reflected said light, thanks to a series of innovative techniques.

The outfits presented were remarkable due to their power of flexibility, fluttering independently of the models’ movements, due to the intricate and strategically placed cuts which enveloped the silhouette, as well as through the booming volumes and 3D appliqués, which made the Iris Van Herpen show a true showcase of the future of fashion.
