Dorhout Mees & Domenico Cioffi Amsterdam Fashion Week SS2013
Dorhout Mees and Domenico Cioffi; the first two LAB shows of this week!
Dorhout Mees kicked off with a small collection of womenswear. Dresses with strong shoulders, structured skirts and blouses combined with tiny hotpants formed playful elegant looks. Esther Louise Dorhout Mees used nature inspired prints and shades of (mos-)green and white. Several fabrics looked shiny and somewhat metallic, as other sheer ones stressed the airy and dreamy aspect of the collection.
Newcomer Domenico Cioffi followed with a selection of true summer looks. He showed wide tops and dresses with line details and striped prints. He even added matching sun caps and styled his looks with chunky cuffs, fringed sandals, cross earrings and eye-catching cool sunglasses which he designed himself. Quite a lot of different styles united! Therefore a clean grey-ish playsuit and a sober trenchcoat inspired design were the strongest items in the bunch.
