It is that time of year again – my favourite time, bar Christmas – when designers around the world begin to show their Spring/Summer collections for the year to come.
This mesmerising collection preview, named “Crystallisation”, is inspired by this very process; the transformation of water into crystal.
In order to create her stunning 3D pieces, Iris van Herpen collaborated with 3D product design company .MGX by Materialise, along with architect Daniel Wright.
Models came down the catwalk in Ecco leather latticed dresses, cocooned in rippled-leather shoulder pads.
Some of the most beautiful pieces featured almost wing-like creations made to look like splashes of water, solidified into crystal.
The full “Crystallisation” collection will be shown at London Fashion Week this September. You can watch the show yourself on YouTube, just click here.
