I have always been a fan of big exaggerated and unpractical fashion, for example Sandra Backlund or Gareth Pugh creations. The crazier the better. Iris Van Herpen’s work is just outstanding and insane. It seems as if she picks a technique or a certain look and just times it by a thousand to create these magnificent highly detailed garments.
This is her more recent Autumn Winter collection entitled “Mummification”. I love the use of the shoe lace tied all around the body, it reminds me of an old collection by Bora Aksu where he used the same technique. The photo-shoot just captures the beauty of this collection completely.
I really can’t wait to see what she does next. To see more of her collection visit her website here: http://www.irisvanherpen.com
