Iris Van Herpen


That's the very first word that came to my mind when I saw Iris Van Herpen Couture collection for Spring Summer 2012. I waited so impatiently for this collection, the last two ones having left me speechless. Iris is one of these rising young and talentuous designers, who's work is absolutely outstanding. I do not think I've been as amazed by a show since the Galliano for Dior era or more recently by Haider Hackermann.
I personally never had the chance, or should I say the honor to attend one of Iris' shows but I'm quiet sure of one thing, it must be very different from the average shows. I kind of see hers such as an incredible experience, a journey into a wondrous and mystical world where Nature and Women are One.
Because I feel that this is the essence of Iris' work, to create sophisticated and blowminding constructions giving the impression it was made by Mother Nature after million years.

I wouldn't call Iris a fashion designer, I'd say she's a magician of architecture. I'm looking forward for her work and bet it's just a matter of time before she becomes big. That's what I call raw talent.
