Bas Kosters: Freedom Collection

There was something new about Bas Kosters’ womenswear-collection for 2010. The dresses, pants and coats he showed yesterday at Paradiso in Amsterdam seemed more refined, happier and free. His previous collections always had a hint of anger, protest and cartoons, but somehow Bas took a few steps forward now. What he showed yesterday was wearable, beautiful in his own way and colorful. It made us laugh, feel happy and reminded us of our careless childhood-moments. The colors! That glitter! The clogs! The signature Kosters-prints! It felt like a serious ready to wear-collection. And he really made us forget that nasty crisis.
