Aziz Bekkaoui Fashion Week Amsterdam FW2014
Aziz Bekkaoui’s fashion show was the closing ‘act’ of tonight’s opening ceremony. The artist and designer, who has his roots in Morocco, treated us to a grande fashion spectacle – named Images Rule – that never seemed to end. “An homage to diversity”, as he stated in his show notes. A selection of soldiers dressed in black opened the show, marching to the beats of Fight the Power. Dark designs followed in a mix of materials like leather, lace and fur. Both men and women paraded in the show, yet their ensembles weren’t all that different for most of the part. Strong silhouettes, mix of textures and Bekkaoui’s eye for detail came through in all of the creations. Some looked modernly clean, others were richer, more accessorized and therefore appeared more classic. Enormous fur bags, high collars, long gloves and heavy head pieces made it a true f/w collection. No worries if next winter will be freezing cold; with Bekkaoui’s collection we’ll have plenty of warm pieces to choose from.
