Friday night at the Amsterdam Fashion Week called for la la lingerie.. Both the new collections of Tess van Zalinge and Lola + Lou, founded by Malou van den Broek, were presented. And in case you thought you can’t hold a fashion show with just underwear, think again. Tess van Zalinge’s ‘Geschapen land | Landschap’ was a perfectly balanced (and her very first) collection based on the typical Dutch scenery Tess witnessed during her many train rides from Utrecht to Amsterdam. Green meadows and a grey/blue sky in the mix with diverse natural shades. With unconventional combinations Tess forms a link between tradition, innovation, under and outerwear creating lingerie looks so impressive some pieces could pass as actual clothing. The fresh faced, freckled models appeared almost angelic in the light palette of the collection inspired by Parts of the book ‘Moet Kunnen’ van Herman Pleij about the way in which the Dutch created their own unique landscape. The collection therefore reflects the ultimate malleability of the Dutch Polder. Bras, body’s, slips and even a long skirt and floor sweeping dress made their appearance. High waisted, sheer, with cut-outs and a mix of lace and satin. Designs almost too pretty to just hide under your clothing.
