Designer Claes Iversen had the honour of opening this edition of Amsterdam Fashion Week (AFW). Or should we say the AFW had the honour? On Thursday night he presented his SS2015 collection; selection of his couture creations combined with designs from his brand new (more affordable) prêt-à-portercollection ‘II by Claes Iversen’. Clothes that still carried his signature; his love for couture and craftsmanship plus a lot of eye for detail. Yet clothes that brought a totally different vibe with them. Practical pieces that were more about wearability and fitting in with the rest of a woman’s wardrobe, other than being complete head turners on their own. Claes introduced sweat shirts (who would have thought?) decorated by crystals and shorts, shirt dresses and trench coats, pleated pants and suit jackets. Basically a complete wardrobe with a strong focus on tailoring, to take you from a casual shopping spree to a fancy dinner. Overall the clothes were clean, almost minimalistic. Yet it wouldn’t have been a true Claes show without the embroidered flowers, the rich fabrics and the ultra elegant silhouettes. Not to forget his signature pleating, draping and folding. Claes’ seahorse print, some of his airy knits and his color palette of nudes, sands and whites alternated by touches of green and yellow definitely screamed summer. A chic summer we can’t wait for to happen. Two by Claes Iversen, we’ll take one of each piece please!
