Ever since I’ve seen her designs, I’m always looking forward to her next shows. Iris van Herpen showed us again a magnificant collection at Paris Haute Couture A/W 2013.
The subject of this show was”Forces of nature”, with the aim of finding a fine balance between craftmanship and innovation. The 11 looks from the brand new Beyond Wilderness couture collection were therefore ranged from wearable pieces into true works of art, just as we are used from Iris Van Herpen. The well-known large, rounded shoulders, the skeleton motif and the corset shapes made their appearance again, but this time Van Herpen showed some Asian influences, like the long assymetrical kimono dress with high slit covered with pretty embroideries.
