For fall/winter 2017/2018 the Spijkers en Spijkers sisters were inspired by the images of and stories about Studio 54, a big New York nightclub that was at it’s peek around the seventies and has been a source of inspiration for many designers. This lead to a great diversity of both color and materials used on signature Spijkers en Spijkers pieces like graphic dresses, blouses, skirts and cardigans. Lurex Ajour knits with stripes, jacquards with flame patterns and wild graffiti prints as well as pop art prints with the words ‘Revolution’ and ‘Love’ gave the designs a certain seventies feeling. Brand new were the jeans that turned out to be part of label’s latest denim collection. A complete line up of models dressed in a nude T-shirt (spelling the words FITIN&STANDOUT) and one of the new denim jeans made sure this SPIJKERS launch didn’t get unnoticed. And well.. they nailed it. But those audience members planning on packing up after that denim finale had to have some more patience, since the show wasn’t quite over yet… In fact, they were in for a treat as the complete Gashouder was turned into one gigantic pop-up mansion party (a preview of the L.A. inspired DILLIH party scheduled for the 4th of March). Think: chandeliers, dancers, balloons, a pop-up bar and Joost van Bellen in his DJ booth spinning some disco classics. As all show attendees were invited onto the catwalk -turned-dancefloor the party could really get started. And like all those epic Saturday nights at Studio 54 decades ago it would become a night to remember…
