FashionWeek Amsterdam FW2914 Fashion LAB: Franzel & Duran Lantink
Eric Franzel, the designer of Franzel Amsterdam, took a current subject like the loss of our privacy due to activities on the internet and Edward Snowden as an inspiration for his FW2014 collection. The vibe was sportswear/streetwear based, with bomberjacks, tracksuits and nylon raincoats wit velcro-details as the heart of his collection. Big logo’s were attached to the (black, gray, khaki) nylon and jersey garments screaming Privacy, Sell, Google and SaFeSex.
The second designer that showed during this Vodafone FashionLab show was Duran Lantink. This time he took the audience to what seemed a Mongolian culture. Silhouettes were stiff and angular, with lots of white, silver and neon-green. Cropped tops, wide pants and layers made an intriguing collection.
