Dutch designer Mattijs van Bergen presented his first collection after a difficult time with financial problems. He seems ready for a new chapter and has decided only to design collections on demand. And one of the projects is this new collection ZWART in collaboration with the Dutch Photomuseum in Rotterdam. The designer got inspired by the black and white photos he found in the archives of the museum of Ed van der Elsken, Aart Klein and Cas Oorthuys. He designed a collection of 16 pieces in black and white and used photo-prints of the artists in an abstract and sometimes recognizable way. The result is a strong, elegant and light collection.
It is the first time the Dutch Photomuseum has an exhibition about photography mixed with fashion. And it turned out very well.

Curious about Dutch fifty years of Dutch fashion-photography? The exhibition of Ferry van der Nat, ZOOM, eyes on Dutch Fashion, is still present in The Hague. Its a small presentation but it gives a good representative view on how strong, special and typical Dutch fashion photography is.

Dutch designers, photographers, beauty-artists, stylists and model choose their favorites and the result is a good mix of old and new work, classic, modern and avantgarde. Besides the photos there’s a little shop with vintage clothes and  new work of young, Dutch talents. Designer Ted Noten is present with his latest project Haunted by 36 women.

A great location to visit while shopping in The Hague.
