Ontfront Amsterdam Fashion Week fw 2010

The menswear-label Ontfront has a signature of its own: rebellious but focused at real men’s  tailoring. The fw 2010 collection had a hint of techno eighties with a straight and gründliche German touch.

Designer Liza Koifman was inspired by car-races at Le Mans and Monaco and car-design and aerodynamic silhouettes. Colors were dark and reminded us of asphalt, rubber wheels and colorful highlights, fabrics were classic but also techno.

All together it was a mucho macho collection with a playful touch, like little boys wearing tough clothes to be like their big brothers. But hey, men and cars – it’s the same as men and clothes. Showing off is allowed.

Preview Jan Taminiau Couture

Yesterday Jan Taminiau presented his couturecollection in Paris. Tomorrow he will officially open the Amsterdam International Fashionweek with his collection Duality. These are the thoughts of the designer regarding his collection:

“‘Duality’ is based on thoughts of a duel and of duality. A duel between different cultural traditions, heritage and innovation. It is a noble duel, almost dancelike as in fencing. With a duality of seduction, unveiling and hiding.

The dresses are comprised of a duel between two different forms and a duel between different worlds. The antique Chinese fabric is used for the most dominant, sculptural form and is placed in contrast with a more classical silhouette. The dialogue also takes places between the almost organic substance of the heavily embroidered fabric with paillettes and the sensitivity of the antique hand woven fabric.

The sculptural forms can be interpreted as a shield -or protection- for battle, but at the same time they offer intimacy, play their role in a game of concealing and seduction.”

The unofficial start of AIFW was last saturday when 20 selected talents showed their creations at Heineken The City fashion design contest. Winner was Marielle van der Gouw, a shoe designer who based her winning hand-printed dress on a crushed beer-can. The white dress with colorful graphics looked very feminine yet streetwise. The other designers were inspired by the color, stars and graphics.
