The 2012 Bulgari Serpenti Collection

In 2012, Bulgari honors one of the most emblematic symbols of its timeless style: Serpenti. Indeed, the new collection of jewellery and watches plays with the sinuous forms of the creature that, more than any other, is distinguished by sensuality and elegance. Realized in yellow or pink gold, the new jewels are conceived as parures, complete with bracelets, rings, earrings and for the first time in a Serpenti collection enchanting necklaces, notable for their suppleness of form and purity of design.

Collection Presentation || ILJA and Ready to Fish_

ILJA Skin\\Fonie FW 12/13
Ilja, the couture line of Ilja Visser brings every season a strong concept which express a blend of wearable evening dresses, extravagant show pieces and a distinct shoe design. All pieces are handmade in the studio from the Ilja Visser Group. This collection is based on beauty and movement. It gives you the impression of modern, expressionist dance with the influence of classic ballet. Both styles find their balance in symmetric, organic forms, underlined by a combination of voluminous skirts and dresses. This leads to an edgy but at the same time an innocent look. The use of hundreds of ribs makes the collection sculptural. Flowy silk, worked with unique prints, gives the collection sophisticated and super feminine feeling. Above that, all vale skintones are combined with crude stonecollor like concrete grey, and a various of black shades.
Ready to Fish_ InMotion SS13 
Ready to_Fish, the in 2007 founded prêt-a-porter line of Ilja Visser, consists a core collection of women’s wear, filled with interiorpieces and music. The Ready to Fish_InMotion SS13 collection is inspired on expressive dance; the desire to balans with emotion and non-verbal communication are being expressed by movement. Paradox combinations determine the image; so the earth-shades versus neon and vulnerability versus firmness stands central. Refined, elegance snits with female aspect is performed in a modern design, what the collection is giving its own character

byBorre || Day: It's all about movement | Night: It's all about feeling

Designer Borre Akkersdijk showed his latest byBorre collection. This time his collection was divided in two parts at two different locations. It started with the day presentation that was dominated by movement and which took place in one of Amsterdam's most authentic gyms; The Apollohal. Within the collection, shown by professional gymnasts, the structure and the use of ton-sur-ton colors were very outstanding. In the evening the night collection came on and off stage at Bar Ludwig, Reguliersdwarsstraat in Amsterdam. For Designer Borre Akkersdijk the interplay between people and technology determines the final form. The limits of the weaving, flat knitting and circular knitting machine were searched and are the most important influence on the design.

Iris van Herpen 'Hybrid Holisme' Haute Couture AW2012/13

 Copyright Michel Zoeter
This season, Iris' inspiration is yet another scientific experiment; this time her inspiration is drawn from a project lead by architect Philip Beesley called Holozolic Ground. His almost living sculptures and environments suggest that a future city could operate as a living being in which Holozolic Ground offers a vision for a new generation of responsive architecture. Beesley collaborates with people from many different disciplines including Rachel Armstrong an experimental chemist who works with 'living technology' such as Synthetic Biology – the engineering for living systems –Armstrong explores metabolic materials to connect human creations, like architecture, with natural systems. Her innovative work uses concepts such as “living buildings” and “self-repairing architecture”; architecture that is self- sustainable and reacts to its changing environment.

JANTAMINIAU Poetic Clash | Haute Couture AW 2012/13

 Copyright Peter Stigter
Poetic Clash is the story of an encounter. An encounter between different cultures. Jan Taminiau shares his interest for the tribal African silhouettes, patterns and scarifications as well as the magnetism of ikats from Uzbekistan. Through this collection, he combines these ethnic inspirations with his Couture savoir-faire and traditional clothing construction crafts. Volumes get suddenly shifted to other parts of the body. Color patterns appear, for the first time in Jan Taminiau’s collections through the use of simple geometric shapes and color contrasts. Meters and meters of tulle are worked to create incredible volumes. The patterns are worked with different layers of tulle, beads or crystal ornamentation to reveal three dimensional details. The final wedding dress shows the amazing result of the collaboration between Maison Lesage and Jan Taminiau. A demi-couture collection will be derived from this collection.
