Whenever you think of an Iris Van Herpen show you know you are in for masterful drama as well as a level of architectural precision that is light-years ahead of any artisan. The recent Iris Van Herpen Syntopia Runway Show did not disappoint. Exquisite tailoring, imaginative patterns as well as mind-blowing lasercut garments radiantly made their way down the dark, shadowy catwalk.
Runway Fashion: Iris Van Herpen Syntopia Runway Show
We can only describe this fashion show in one word, mesmerizing. From gowns that float as if they had sprouted wings or drip from a waterfall; to attire reminiscent of iridescent feathers. The entire Iris Van Herpen Fall 2018 collection is just a divine spectacle to behold.
Designer Iris Van Herpen shared a few words regarding the inspiration beyond this extraordinary show. Iris reveals,
“For ‘Syntopia’ I felt inspired by the intricate echoing work of the artists Studio Drift. Their spatial kinetic installation ‘In 20 Steps’ is constructed of 20 delicate glass wings; that represent all the different steps of flying in an abstract way.
The vivacious glass bird flows in symbiosis with the models while they move over the runway. Their delicate interaction emphasizes the fragility of new worlds living and soaring together.”
