Prominent Dutch designer Iris van Herpen wowed the crowd with her collection Hypnosis.
Hypnosis debuted at Élysée Montmartre in Paris during fashion week in which van Herpen collaborated with Anthony Howe, a wind-powered kinetic sculptor. The collection consists of nineteen outfits, each holding a distinctive look.
“The Hypnosis collection is a hypnotic visualisation of nature’s tapestry, the symbiotic cycles of our biosphere that interweave the air, land, and oceans,” said Van Herpen. Adding “It also reflects the ongoing dissection of the rhythms of life and resonates with the fragility within these interwoven worlds.”
Each of the dress brings emphasis to the dimension of how the garments flow down the models as it is worn. The collection has a nice juxtaposition with the usage of the fabrication, such as the duchess satin and organza. Throughout the runway, the models walked through a spherical sculptor that Anthony Howe had created — a truly mesmerising space.
“The three-dimensional cyclical harmony of Howe’s kinetic sculptures is the wind beneath the wings of this collection,” said the studio. “The meditative movement of the Omniverse serves as a portal for the collection and the models, encircling a state of hypnosis.”
