Claes Iversen S/S ’12

Yesterday evening, one of our favourites of the Dutch fashion scene, Claes Iversen, presented his Spring/Summer ’12 collection in an empty office-building. The show started with a short black & white video, featuring the Dutch actress Liz Snoyink.

The theme of the collection is based on the lovestory of a woman and her meticulously composed wardrobe. But it also underlines that fame and wealth go hand in hand with loneliness and transciency. Claes took some famous 5th-Avenue-ladies as an example like Jacky Kennedy, Nan Kempner and Mona von Bismarck; rich, upper-class figureheads, that posessed impressive private couture-collections, and at the same time their lives were marked by loneliness and melancholia.

Claes Iversen Fashion Show AW10

Back in the days, when I was a little girl, I stayed home alone for the first time and I invited my best friend to come watch a movie. It was Romy’s and Michelle’s High School reunion. The movie was about two girls who wanted to impress their old classmates by telling them that they invented post-it’s. As a 12 year old girl I thought it was a brilliant idea. But nowadays, 11 years later, I think making fashion out of post-it’s is even more brilliant! Especially if Holland’s most talented designer Claes Iversen is giving us his vision on that little piece of yellow paper…

Not a lot of designers are honored with a standing ovation after their show, but Claes Iversen was lucky! The talented designer keeps surprising us with his elegant and modern collections. His detailling and craftmanship is impeccable, but he also struggles with being creative and having business-discipline at the same time. The object of that frustration translated into a Post-it.
