SIS by Spijkers en Spijkers Catwalk Fashion Show Amsterdam SS2017

“… The two girls grew up at the edge of the ocean and knew it was paradise, and better than Eden, which was only a garden…” – Eve Babitz –

‘Eden’ is the name of SIS by Spijkers en Spijkers’ brand new collection presented at the Gashouder on Friday night. A collection full of passion, leering and seductive giving the audience a taste of life without limits. Clothes designed for the love ones, invisible to those who don’t know love and inspired by stories about Paradise. For decisive women who like to be challenged to investigate, experience and be loved endlessly.

As with every collection Truus and Riet once again picked a muse. They found their free loving rebel in party-girl, style icon and artist Eve Babitz.

How this all translated into wearable womenswear looks, you wonder? Well, love was written all over the daring, sometimes revealing fabrics. Models paraded around in airy dresses, blouses and skirts made of silks and viscose crepes. Elegant designs mixed with sportive touches. Just as jackets, bombers and shorts added some contrast to the Love-themed collection. Floral prints and stripes met each other halfway. Beige suede pants and a leave printed green shirt formed a rather casual outing. As an off shoulder airy printed dress added some seductive sassiness. Richly decorated T-shirts and sweaters were given an admirable designer touch and the graphic SIS details were unmistakable.

If we ever have to deal with a Paradise dresscode, we know who to turn to. We don’t just like this, we LOVE it!

Leave it up to Truus and Riet Spijkers to take care of our Saturday night entertainment. Once again they delighted us with yet another on point SIS by Spijkers en Spijkers collection. Discover Moon Tan, inspired by the moon and a trip to Shanghai the Arnhem based designers made earlier this year. Their muse: Ching Shih, a pirate and a princess of the Chinese Sea in the 18th century. Think: lots of color, graphic cuts and theme-inspired prints like an ikat pattern designed around Chinese landscapes and cube-like panters. Suits in large woolen tartan prints and lurex jacquards were followed by dresses made of extra soft crêpe de Chine, wool and satin. Even jeans and sweatshirts made their appearance. Finished off with XL mirror earrings, pendants, brooches, reflecting the catalk lights like the full moon. Creating ensembles both elegant and comfortable, suitable for both office and happy hours.

No doubt about it; Spijkers en Spijkers took us straight to summer 2014 with their  vibrant beach-y collection. From a background of moving waves young models with messy beach hair followed each other in the (what seemed like a) never ending show. Playful skirts, loose blouses, wide dresses and high waisted pants brought us on a trip to the French Riviera. Girls looked sweet and cheerful, like a young Brigitte Bardot (when she was still a brunette), yet never too sexy for the SIS brand. They sported stripes and checks in classic shades of red, white and blue. Small belts and beaded necklaces added a colorful touch, while floral prints and bright organza fabrics revived the show towards the end. Forget hot summer destinations like Ibiza and Mykonos, next year Côte d’Azur it is!

My wife glad to see me in action again 🙂 I’m gonna buy new bed this week, haha. Buy cialis online. More information regarding generic medications can be found at this link. We can give you a 100% guarantee for it!

Those colored lashed looked great at the show of SIS! We thought it was a new mascara, but we noticed they were colored by hand. Take a look backstage of SIS by Spijkers & Spijkers.

Truus Spijkers and Riet Spijkers presented a signature SIS collection tonight, named I am in training, don’t kiss me. The looks were inspired by the circus, which was visible in the clothing details and the circus animal prints. Even the backdrop and the music breathed circus, while the smiling models with curly hair gave the show an extra positive vibe.

They wore wearable dresses in different colored parts and playful ruffled skirts. Printed hot shorts were worn with loose fitting tops, small colored belts and elegant heels. Like always at SIS there were a few suits too, a light pink version with a blouse in the same color being the most stunning.

An extra playful accent was added to the show when a dressed up circus dog (actually the dog of the Spijkers-sisters) was sent on the runway, accompanied by one of the models. Overall it was one of the sexiest, most cheerful SIS collections so far. Let’s keep this positive vibe throughout the night!

This upcoming edition of the Amsterdam International Fashion Week the twins sisters Riet en Truus Spijkers will be the first to show their  SIS collection. We spoke to the sisters about this new collection and what kind of story they will be telling during the opening event.

“We’re very excited to be part of the opening show this season. For us that’s even better than just doing a regular fashion show. It results in a lot of media attention, which is one of the reasons we decided to show during Amsterdam Fashion Week. More media coverage results in more requests for our collection and that’s always good.”

It’s only one year ago that Spijkers en Spijkers launched it’s little sister SIS, yet so far the new line is doing great. “We are getting applications for the collections from abroad as well. SIS is now being sold in countries like Italy, Japan and Australia.”

As for the new summer collection we can expect nothing but summery/sunny clothing. “The collection is sunny, optimistic and a little naughty. The theme is Bain du Soleil. Again it will have some twenties references, which we also used in our music. The soundtrack will be modern but with a definite twenties twist.”

Like in every collection the sisters chose a certain woman as their female muse for the collection. “This time Olympic swimmer Zus Braun gave the designers their inspiration. Due to that the collection has some slightly sporty details in it, but mostly done in a very feminine way.”

“The clothes will have a tight fit and come in colors like rose, pistachio, amber and nautical blue. There are some bright Au Bain de Soleil prints as well. We used cotton, crêpe de chine and some very comfy jerseys. It’s just a fun collection, so we’re very much looking forward to the show.”

SIS by Spijkers en Spijkers will be shown on Wednesday evening 13 July at 6.30 p.m.

We saw some Fast Ladies on the runway at SIS by Spijkers en Spijkers. Wearing loose-fitting overalls (with lammy collars), knitted dresses, leather jackets and loose pants the girls rocked the show, inspired by the first women in race sport and aviation.

Truus and Riet Spijkers always felt that women should feel free and live up to their dreams, so they chose Amelia Earhart (the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean) as the muse of this new collection.

The silhouettes were very tailored, yet everything looked very comfortable and elegant. The shades of black, true blue, dreamblue, grey blue, ochre, ecru and light taupe worked together beautifully. The brand new ‘cloud print’ the sisters designed in red and blue felt like a modern camouflage print and looked fresh.

Congrats on your second SIS collection Spijkertjes!

For the second time the sisters Truus and Riet Spijkers will show their SIS collection during the Amsterdam Fashion Week. Their second collection of their more affordable line will exist of 30 looks, containing 90 outfits.

‘For this fall collection we were inspired by the first female drivers and aviators back in the days. We used ladies like Amelia Earheart, the first woman to cross the ocean, as an inspiration. We were already thinking about doing something with he for a long time and now was the right time’, Truus Spijkers explained.

Truus and Riet didn’t use the theme very literally. ‘When you think of aviators you almost immediately think of lammy coats, well you’re not going to see those in our collection’, Truus said. ‘We did design knitted dresses with ribbons stitched on top of it, tough overalls and jackets with fur collars. We used shades of blue, light taupe, grey, black and some red.’

While the sea was a big theme in the latest SIS collection, this time it’s all about the sky. The twin sisters therefore designed a print of clouds that will pop up in the collection.

Truus tells the collection will definitely be a winter collection: ‘We used heavy wool, silk and cotton, yet we also did one lightweight parachute fabric.’

Her favorite items are the knitted dresses: ‘They’re comfortable and luxe, so I think many people will like them. Our musthaves for next winter must be the overall and the jumpsuit.’

Like at last year’s SIS show some video material might be shown, but the sisters can not give away too much. What they can say is that Joost van Bellen is working on some very tough rock ‘n roll music, which we’re dying to hear on Thursday evening (27 January).
