Exhibit: Iris Van Herpen At The Groninger Museum

1+Skeleton+dress+HR 4 474x540 Exhibit: Iris Van Herpen At The Groninger Museum

Netherland’s Groninger Museum opened its Iris van Herpen exhibit earlier this month, a retrospective of the Dutch couture designer applauded for her striking creations of organic, surreal, futuristic wearable (or are they?) pieces unlike the works of her peers. The museum’s website dishes in on the exhibit details:

“Each collection has its own narrative, and wearability is not the ultimate criterion. For instance, Radiation Invasion is about the invisible radiation and signals all around us that make telecommunication possible. The Synesthesia collection has a neurological phenomenon as its point of departure, where a mingling of sensory perceptions occurs. There are people who can ‘see’ music, for example, or can ‘taste’ colours.”

To have a retrospective exhibit at just 27, life is not too shabby for van Herpen. If you’re among the lucky few who happen to be in the neighborhood, seeing these designs in the flesh is a must. For those interested in planning around this exhibit, it will be displayed in the museum until September 23rd.- Rika N.Images via Groninger Museum.

28 February 2011, 20.09 | Posted in Designer Collaboration, Fashion, Shoes | 2 comments »


We were all mesmerized by their collaboration last year, but this Spring, clutch the pearls . United Nude and Iris van Herpen have taken ou breath away with chains and weaving that makes us want to be their  fashion slaves:

Two versions of a sculptural high-heeled platform ankle bootie: the first, a complex weave of leather lace detailing; the second, elegantly draped with thin chains. The intricacy and precision of these creations require them to be 100% hand crafted in the most luxurious of leathers. The 100 limited edition pairs will retail at $995 and will be available in Black, Off White and Tan. More images on the next page courtesy of United Nude.
