‘Syntopia’ behind the scenes in Paris. ~ The ‘Inside a second’ mini dress: chronophotographic lines of bird wing movements are lasercut from mylar and black cotton to then be heatbonded to hundreds of layers of two-toned dyed red organza, to flow like time-lapse motion. ~ Show credits Collaborating artists: @studio.drift Photography: @morgan_odonovan Styling: @patti_wilson Casting: Maida Gregori Boina, @maximevalentini & @caromauger Make-up: @terrybarberonbeauty & the @maccosmeticsfrance PRO Team Hair: @martincullen65 | @streetersldn Manicure: @jessicascholten_ | @opinl Music: @sssalvadorrr Breed Press: @karlaotto ~ #irisvanherpen #syntopia #parisfashionweek
The Dutch designer combines fashion technology with traditional couture craftsmanship. Her impressive luxury fashion creations blend heritage with innovative materials. van Herpen’s garments are unique aesthetic visions of the future, where biology, physics, and AI algorithms are seamlessly merged to push the boundaries of fashion design.
van Herpen’s interest in multidisciplinary procedures – that go beyond fashion – lead to various collaboration with Lonneke Gordijn, Neri Oxman, Ralph Nauta, Philip Beesley, Benthem and even CERN and MIT. These interactions have eventually evolved into van Herpen’s 2018 collection, Syntopia – “Biology merging with technology.”
