Ilja Visser is also a well established Dutch designer. Last season she presented a SMART for which she designed the in- and exterior, and tonight (right this minute) we’re at her latest show from the Ready to Fish collection.
The theme is Mrs Forrester, based on a mysterious woman who is close to nature, looking for a sprinkle of magic. Might she be a witch? That explains the high hats!
It starts with brocate fabrics, lilac silk and burgundy stockings. One of her signature pants is a sort of harempants model. Executed in silk or fine knitwear, combined with a vest or ruffled top.
We definitely like the big comfy and long scarfs from this collection. Some made of one piece, or where you can put your hands in like a scarf/glove construction, and the knitted merinowool jumpsuits.
The more dressed up items are black see-through or silver brocate pants, black jackets or a dark petrol bodycon dress.
To conclude: the combination of sheer fabrics and soft knits works very well. It looks ‘dressy’, but comfortable at the same time for a cold autum or winters day. Oh yes, and we loooove the clutches! Can we have one?
