After having shown several looks during the latest Future Generation Presents The Painting six months ago Merel van Glabbeek was back at MBFWA on Friday. At the Transformatorhuis she presented her brand new collection. A collection full of vibrant looks in a color palette ranging from white and red to brown and black. A number of kimono inspired dresses looked easy to wear, yet had a luxurious touch to them. Embroidered details and tassle accessories gave the collection an extra exotic, perhaps even eastern- touch. Highly decorated, arty headpieces combined with super tight braids and interesting ankle boots turned the sophisticated looks into a complete fashion story. In Merel’s designs there’s always a focus on extensive handcrafting so this collection was no exception. And all that hard work certainly paid off today.

Blue spikes, green hair, purple make-up, headbands, braids and chunky piercings; there was nothing plain about the models looks at Rotterdam fashion collective Reconstruct. Same goes for their clothing. Designers┬áLaura Aanen, Zara Asmail, Alyssa Groeneveld, Kim Kivits, Michelle Lievaart and Sanne Verkleij came up with deconstructed shirts, shiny cut-out suits, cropped hoodies and kimono inspired gear. Overall the looks were tough (how about that guy smoking on the runway?) and sporty. On to the next boxing match! And let’s hope nobody gets strangled by all those bands and straps.
