I’d never heard of Dutch designer Iris van Herpen, but just one glimpse of the setting for her spring 2018 runway show, had me curious about her work. The show was held at the Galerie de Minérologie et de Géologie in Paris and although her work is not my thing, I found the sheer fantasy of it all captivating. Nature is a central inspiration (the collection is called Ludi Nature); “I think we as humans don’t even come close to the intelligence within nature. It’s funny how people think that nature is simple and technology is complex—it’s the opposite; technology is simple and nature is complex.” Take a look at the collection –– this dress looks to be made up of a dozen vertabrae.
