Découvrez la vision audacieuse de l’un des créateurs de mode les plus originaux d’aujourd’hui avec 45 tenues provenant de 15 collections. Van Herpen (néerlandais, né en 1984) travaille dans le domaine de la mode, du design, de la technologie et de la science.
With a dynamic and path-breaking body of work, she is widely heralded as a pioneering new voice in fashion. She is known for her willingness to experiment—exploring new fabrics created manipulating iron filings in resin, incorporating unexpected materials ranging from umbrella tines to magnets, and pushing the boundaries of technologies such as 3-D printing. Her work has been worn by style icons such as Lady Gaga, Beyoncé and Björk and has graced the runways of Amsterdam, London and Paris. This exhibition documents the evolution of Iris van Herpen’s couture through a selection of her collections from 2008 through 2015 and illustrates the many ways she continues to seek inspiration beyond the world of traditional handwork and craftsmanship.
