LISELORE FROWIJN’S ‘FIRST’

LISELORE FROWIJN’S ‘FIRST’

Every now and then, young talent pops up that is worth raving/going crazy about. Liselore Frowijn is only 23 years old and has already achieved a pretty impressive CV. She graduated cum laude in 2013 with her collection Afternoon of a Replicant with which she later won the Dutch Couture Award by Frans Molenaar and …

CLAES IVERSEN

CLAES IVERSEN

Just a few days before his show, I met up with Danish/Dutch designer Claes Iversen at his atelier to talk about nerves, Amsterdam Fashion Week, his new collection and what makes him tick. Because after showing 14 times at Fashion Week, does one still get nervous?

OLAF HUSSEIN’S ‘FIRST’

When it comes to Fashion Week, Amsterdam is always first on the calendar. What else is a ‘first’ is young menswear designer Olaf Hussein, who debuted on the catwalk last Thursday.

CLAES IVERSEN

If there is one word that would describe the typical Claes Iversen collection best, it is feminine. Playing with proportions inspired by a bow that is falling apart is the latest thing he showed on the second day of Amsterdam Fashion Week. A thing that came in little color; beige (and one babyblue one) pantsuits …

Inspired by movement of dancers, they came up with clean cuts and simple pieces, while trying to keep it refreshing. Going through the collection, I fell for the amount of …

CLAES IVERSEN

Claes Iversen got the honor to open Amsterdam Fashion Week last night, with a mix of elements from his previous collections. The Danish designer opened with minimalistic looks in grey and neutral tones, followed by colorful floral prints and butterfly decorations. What I really liked about his show was the storyline and how the neutral …

DENNIS DIEM
