Erny van Reijmersdal Catwalk Fashion Show Amsterdam FW2012
Sunday afternoon the Erny van Reijmersdal show took place. It was a show unlike the rest of the show we saw this week. Familiar models walked the runway in static luxury creations to the tunes of Pirated of the Carribean and Dutch singer Ramses Shaffy.
Long skirts and tailored jackets were the two main items of the collection. Checked woolen blankets held together by safety pins were followed by wide silk and velour skirts. Jackets were presented in any possible fit, color and print (paisley, checks). And all of them were super tailored, pleated in the back and had eye-catching toggles.
Looks were styled off with high tough black boots, ruffled white blouses, wide belts, scarves and gloves, which the models carried in their hands. Enormous pearl bracelets and necklaces added some extra glam to the luxurious catwalk looks.
The overload of fur (complete fox furs were tossed on the models’ shoulders) didn’t appeal to everyone. Quite a few people in the room reacted pretty extreme. However, it was a solid, cohesive collection, which received a standing ovation at the end from a big part of the audience.
