On the 7th of July 2010 Jan Taminiau presented his new collection at the BETC during the Couture Week Paris
The collection is about the concept of mirroring and reflection, “old” couture reflected in contemporary couture and the magical moment where you discover yourself looking at your reflection in a mirror and being conscious of being: The elusiveness of reality.
The colours that dominate the collection are different shades of nude, liver and pale grey.The materials used are crêpes, chiffon, sequins, hand woven degrade fabrics, Swarovski crystals, and metal knit work. (Transparent) crystals play an important role in the clothes. They are used frequently under a layer of sheer fabric such as chiffon. That way, the sparkle lights up the material in a subtle way, adding to the mystical effect.The cuts are generally slender, stretched, v-shaped silhouettes, the centre of gravity being the top part, portraying an ultra feminine image.
