Pauline van Dongen

Pauline van Dongen and Etranger were the last two designers presenting their LAB collections on Thursday. Pauline’s collection Kinetic Landscapes was perfect. Her dresses had unexpected shapes, lovely details and came in beautiful shades like orange, blue, grey and black. For this collection Pauline was inspired by the powerful force of water and air that both can make big changes to different landscapes. The shoes in this collection were made by Anna Korshun and the jewelry was designed by Nathalie Tappin.

Etranger

The new collection of designer Lifu Hsiao was inspired by an epic movie by David Lynch: ‘Twin Peaks: Fire walk with me’. Especially the styling and the themes of this movie inspired him to design some sexy flowy dresses and some cute babydoll versions. The shades, ranging from white to pastel and bright red all had a special shiny effect to them and were combined with sheer, black cape-like layers. Check out the gallery below.
