    * It's Iris VAN Herpen, btw... sorry mods. :ninja:

    Anyhow, I think she is very talented. I'm not completely sold on some of the looks - mainly the jumpsuit, the look with the sequin pants, and the blk./wht. strapless dress. The moments of brilliance and beauty are truly sublime though. I can't get over the details and how well executed they are. There is a Thierry Mugler quality about her work, but her things are softer and more human... :heart:

    I've seen a lot of her work and to me this is kind of what she did last season only a bit boring. Her bamboo collection was amazing though

    This is extraordinary. I love the symmetry, the outfits look like frozen water waves.
    It reminds me a lot of old Alexander McQueen.

    I've just found these on mademoisellerobot.com. The detail is amazing.
    The collection isn't something I'd wear, but wow anyway.

    to quote the site:

    The Iris Van Herpen show was actually really scary, the polar opposite of Charlie Le Mindu. Models wore clothes inspired by radiation waves and were walking on their tippy toes. They would stop here and there and the lights started flashing, which made me want to hide under my seat.

    Thanks for those pictures, Womanolo! Her work is amazing. And yes, she works primarily with leather straps. If you've worked with leather, you will know that that is a feat in itself, esp. doing the type of molding van Herpen is.

    Overall, I like her work...I've been at her previous two shows in Amsterdam and her Egyptian collection last season blew me away. The one before that not so much and this one is kinda in the middle. It's pretty much a continuation on her previous collection which gives me reason to believe that the models walked on their toes because she's still unable to pay for (good) shoes :ninja:

    ^ Yeah, her lack of funds is evident, but I still respect the level of craftsmanship she manages to attain on such a tight budget...
