No Lack of Black

My Lovely friend Suzan
Two familiar faces present

Funerals have something dramatic about them. I imagine people wearing their best black clothes,lace vails and hats, tight suits, umbrellas, sunglasses, and women in sheer tights with a backseem on black high heels.
So dissapoitning when poeple dare to show up in their daily jeans and sneakers.
But there was nothing dissapointing about the amount of black that showed up friday at amsterdam fashion week.

The Iris van Herpen show was something many had been looking forward to , including me. Her inspiration was egiptian mummification and considering her signature materials wich are leather and industrial materials, it promised to be mindblowing. It was a short show with only a few looks yet all the viewers were left in complete awe.

True about the funeral baby. Ah I loved the Iris collection bit. Make me reminisce Jun Takhashi's f/w 06.

Wow wow wow. I had looked at these pictures before, but knew nothing of the designer and her inspirations. Knowing that she took inspiration from Egyptian mummies puts it a whole nother level for me!
