AMSTERDAM FASHION WEEK AW’16

Amsterdam fashion week AW16

Last week was the bi-annual Fashion Week in Amsterdam, showcasing the autumn winter collection of 2016 from Dutch ground. I attended quite a few shows this season that I wanted to report back to you here today. I didn’t bring my Canon camera this time, but snapped plenty of photos with my phone, which turned out totally fine thanks to the front row seats we got via Fashionweek Nederland :D Sit back, relax and enjoy Mercedez-Benz Fashion Week through my iphone!

Dutch Visionaries

Dutch designers from established to up and coming ones, opened the shows with classic to modern pieces from the last 40 years in extreme disguise of the fabulous models. It sure was a great start of the catwalk show, the energy went way up high!

Couture & Crafts

The couture and craft show was mesmerizing. A show with Dutch couture pieces from 1960 to 2016. I could see that this show was really special with all the Dutch couture legends lined up. Admiring elegant pieces, ballroom dresses to a painting dress from Viktor & Rolf.

Lisa Konno

It was the first time for me attending the Lisa Konno show. Her collection was black and white with a ethnical print incorporated in the details. I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome of the wearable collection.

Claes Iversen

Personally, I always looking forward to this show. Every season the designer knows how to surprise you with his ‘not cliché creations’. The snow flakes completed the dreamy setting. I desperately want the purple coat that you see on the right. Anyhow, once again he succeeded to establish many ‘wow’ moments with an amazing wedding dress as showstopper.

Esther Haamke

In my ‘day 2’ outfit I was wearing an Esther Haamke bomber jacket. It’s a pretty crazy bold piece to put on, perfect for fashion week! I got soooo many compliments that evening. That jacket from last season promised a fun show that I didn’t want to miss. Japanese streetstyle-like pieces is what I hoped for and what Esther Haamke had delivered. The fortune collection so amazing, especially because it included the Japanese lucky cat ‘Maneki-neko’. I can’t wait to wear something from this collection to Fashion Week again ;)

Spijkers & Spijkers

The twin sisters Spijkers showcased a beautiful collection inspired by the Moon. Colors, prints and panther heads on sleek fabrics. I particularly loved the panter sweater that I put high on my wish list.

Tony Cohen

In a Tony Cohen ensemble I went to his show to wrap up another season MBFWA. Kim Feenstra was starring as the muse once again like no other. The collection was still very Tony, yet different, much darker this time. In black and white with a hint of red I saw the gorgeous designs passing by in front of me.
