Bas Kosters Amsterdam Catwalk Fashion Show SS2013
No evening show for Bas Kosters today. Instead he held a matinee show this afternoon. It started with an on stage interview with the famous Margreet Dolman who asked him about the big inspiration for his spring/summer collection…Love!
Turns out when Bas Kosters and his partner broke up after a nine year relationship last year Bas felt he just had to do something with love. When he was ready to leave his grief behind he tattooed the word ‘love’ on his chest and moved on. He used his broken heart experience for his new collection, named Love Fuck Yeah, inspired by the love of his family and friends, the love for himself and his work that strengthened him.
And loaded with love it was. In a nine minute during show Bas gave us all the love he had to give to the tunes of 90 different love tracks (Love for the Sake of Love – Love me like a loaded Gun – Love is a drug). All looks were colorful and printed, like you’d expect from Bas. Prints included checks, dolls and hearts shapes, which maybe looked innocent but in fact were made out of porn images. His bright sequins were heart shaped too and a male model dressed in an enormous tule dress was just too cool for skool.
After all models had left the runway they came up once more picking people out of the audience dancing with them and just sharing the love. Then the church bells rang and the last song started… “Going to the chapel and we gonna get married..”, we heard as Bas wearing a veil came on stage with someone in an enormous heart costume. As a wedding cake was brought on it was clear: Bas is madly in love again and ready to share it with the rest of the world.
