We are soooo sorry! We had to do some ‘work in progress’- things on the backside of our blog (still working of the look of the site!) and it took much longer than expected, so we couldn’t post anything the last couple of days. Call it faith, but it happened just when the Amsterdam International Fashion Week started. So now we feel al little bit like we have to sell you guys old news….
After two successful collaborations with Dutch fashion designer Antoine Peters, United Nude and Dutch fashion designer Iris van Herpen joined forces to create shoes for van Herpen’s Autumn Winter 2010 collection. The result: hoof-like creations we’ve seen before by Balenciaga and Alexander McQueen.
This Amsterdam Fashion Week, designer Antoine Peters presented his new collection titled ‘THE WORLD IS FLAT’ in an unusual way, by launching a pop-song and pop-video on Diane Pernet’s legendary ‘A Shaded View On Fashion’ blog. The summer collection is inspired by the pop-culture, designer clothes wearing pop-artists and a individual progressive view on fashion presentations. But most of all it’s a playful and elegant collection, with Peters’ characteristic self-proclaimed ‘one size fits all elegance’. The collection consists out of ‘shuffled’ pieces of clothing and a sky-high coloring-page, of flat pin-ups which are colored in with make-up, as a print. The line is executed in comfortable fabrics and flattering silhouettes which can be worn in different ways. Like always, we love the funny part of the show. In this case the video clip. Antoine is always adding something in his show, to laugh about. A theme with elephants and mosquito’s or the ‘Fat people are harder to kidnap’ collection with runway songs like ‘I like big buds and I cannot lie…’
