Future Generations presents: Das Leben am Haverkamp Amsterdam Fashion Week

Season after season the LAB shows have amazed and surprised us and on the opening night of this fashion week Das Leben am Haverkamp was no exception. The fashion collective, formed by four young designers (Anouk van Klaveren, Christa van der Meer, Dewi Bekker en Gino Anthonisse) was both entertaining and fascinating. With four different presentations the young talents presented their vision on contemporary fashion and design.

Dewi Bekker kicked off with a colorful menswear collection with a focus on lines and fields, patent leather and semi formal influences (suit and tie). Her men wore gloves and masks which made the whole thing even more abstract.

Naked guys wrapped in shiny gold ribbon entered the stage as part of Anouk van Klaveren’s presentation. A mini show which purpose or message was hard to understand without any explanatory show notes. From a burka inspired look covered in shiny polka dots to a navy shaded heavy woolen suit, a black suit covered with pearl necklaces and a fluffy/fur inspired head to toe attire worn with gold colored slippers; not your every day outing, but food for thought for sure.

Gino Antonisse followed with his oriental inspired selection of art meets fashion looks. His models wore checked dress designs, oversized kimonos and suit jackets with long slits on the sides. On their hats they carried around enormous paper fans, which turned the looks into interesting pieces of art.

Christa’s fashion installations ended this LAB collaborative quite brilliantly. Out of six big white boxes appeared enormous blow up figures (the ones sometimes used on the side of the road to attract customers). For the occasion Christa dressed them up in colourful striped looks in which they were shaking their hats and arms around. Probably nothing trend setting, but the designers deserves some extra points for originality and the show’s fun factor.
