Iris: “Iris van Herpen brings fashion to the next level: it’s sculptural, almost alien-like at times, using various innovating methods. Her creations are full of texture, surprising shapes and intricate designs. To me, her models look like butterflies sometimes, or iridescent insects flickering in the light.
Iris also makes use of innovation and technology to create her sometimes complex structures. Her new collection ‘Earthrise’ recycles plastic bottles into fabric and uses a laser-cutting technique to create lace that closely resembles dead white coral.“
“To see her work in motion is even more stunning. Her ‘glitch’ dress flows exactly the way you would think a glitchy Sims character would move in real life. The Sphaera Mundi dress from her latest collection uses kinetic movements to bring it alive. It’s out of this world and visually so pleasing for the eye.”
At the maison of Iris van Herpen, Haute Couture is a transformative force that transcends boundaries and unites multi-disciplinary technologies with intricate artisanal craftsmanship. The brand’s visionary creations merge pioneering techniques and luxurious materials, often evoking a sense of avant-garde wonder.
