For the past two days New York was the homebase of The Kingpins Show, an invitation-only, boutique denim sourcing show featuring a highly-edited selection of vendors. We were there to capture the event and the atmosphere. International denim heads, countless denim variations, a colorful art project and an outdoor after party that felt more like a summer festival; this was Kingpins NYC SS2018.

David Laport FW17/18 Amsterdam Catwalk Fashion Show

The aqarium (1882) of Amsterdam based Zoo Artis acted as a show venue on Tuesday night. Dutch designer David Laport presented his brand new collection Fuse surrounded by the most exotic fish (and dressed up birds of paradise). An extra special setting that probably triggered a large part of the Dutch fashion crowd to show up as it was super crowded. And of course David Laport (1986) has really made a name for himself in the last couple of years showing his designs at both Amsterdam and Paris fashion week. As of this season the young designer is working with Paris based agent AMF. He is expanding his brand and also creates custom made red carpet designs for his clients every now and then.

His new demi couture collection was all about light, airy designs that gracefully moved as the models walked the runway. Inspired by climate change and the nature’s beauty that comes with it David created pleats that represented the crumbling of the ice caps and he used shiny, sheer materials that gave the idea of melting ice. References that worked beautifully with the chill and serene atmosphere in the underwater wold of the monumental building of the Artis aquarium. Colors were absent as black, white and silver designs dominated the collection. Were his creations previously more art than fashion, this collection was David’s most wearable (and thus commercial) to date. His shoe collection of sculptural heels appeared a little less comfortable (one model had to take them off), yet they perfectly matched the theme of the evening.

After a final glimpse at the fish and the flamingos outside the audience took off. Inspired by Davids dreamy collection, checking yet another extraordinary show venue off of their list.

Claes Iversen Haute Couture SS2017

Never had Claes Iversen designed a collection so quickly as with this SS2017 couture collection ‘Horizontal Illumination’. Within one week he had his couture plan for upcoming season rolled out. Yet those ideas maybe came to mind quickly, the execution and construction of these showstopping designs took the Claes Iversen atelier hours, days, weeks.. forever.

Like any other Claes Iversen couture collection for SS2017 once again so much thought and the utmost precision went into the details. Beads, pearls, embroideries, fringes, ruffles and studs all created and added to the clothes with so much love for the art (craftmaship) and dedication. The morning of the show some dresses still needed finishing and several minutes before showtime Claes Iversen’s team was still cutting the fringes of a floor sweeping gown (still the designer himself was calm & collected throughout the day). It needed to be perfect and precise even though those slight changes in length were hardly noticeable as the models walked the runway. Yet it is with this eye for detail that makes Claes Iversen stand apart from most designers. It is those refined details that turn any of his designs into immediate show stoppers. They make you want to see more, up close. And trust us at these couture pieces you just can keep on staring.

Just as mesmerizing was the color palette of choice; emerald, ruby red, soft pink, mustard and mint worked together beautifully. The designs were graceful, playful, cool, elegant and original. Fishnet stockings, metallic heels, the models wavy long hair and red lips added to the right contemporary fashion sense. There were enough floor sweeping dream dresses to make any woman want to get married right away and that structural, flow mint number was simply breathtaking.

We couldn’t be more proud to have Claes Iversen as the first designer to show at our TPS show venue. What a collection, what a night. Thanks everyone for making this possible and congratulations Claes and his team on this stunning couture collection.

Dutch designers Schueller de Waal and Barbara Langendijk shared a showroom in Paris last week to present their fall winter collections. Although different in style and view it was an intimate and relaxed way to get to know their work. The silence and minimalism of Barbara Langendijk, the more extroverted and witty vibe of the Schueller de Waal duo.
