Opening Show at Amsterdam Fashion Week: Das Leben am Haverkamp

Opening Show at Amsterdam Fashion Week: Das Leben am Haverkamp

Dutch fashion collective Das Leben Am Haverkamp opened the Amsterdam Fashion Week (sponsored by Mercedes-Benz: MBFWA) thursday evening. Das Leben am Haverkamp (The life at Haverkamp*)  debuted in 2015 at Amsterdam Fashionweek during “The Future Generation” program with the fashion performance “Gefelicifashion” (*Read more about that and the designers HERE on this blog)

(the finale XOXOMIMIBERLINMMXVII)

DLAH showed a “Holiday Resort Happening” The basis for this presentation was a question they asked themselves about fashion: what happens to clothes if you take away it’s functionality. The audience wasn’t really included in this questionnaire; we were left to think for ourselves whilst (a lovely cast) of models passed us by in a monotone choreography. The models were holding lifesize illustrations, mostly executed in plastic, of “looks”.

FashionWeek NL: Collectie Arnhem 2017

FashionWeek NL: Collectie Arnhem 2017

On Thursday Jan. 26 Mimi Blogger Team went to see the presentation of Collectie Arnhem 2017: Freedom! Inconvenience! Madness! And a hard-boiled egg.

The third year students of Artez Arnhem Fashion Design came up with a surprisingly divers collection and presentation. In the color of a hard boiled egg: yellow, they indeed showed freedom and inconvenience. Models obiviously felt free in ‘sweatshirt’ tops and couldn’t walk at all in monumental trousers (just naming the extremes here). The latter is sheer madness od course!

The fact that our fashion-imagination instantly started translating the more ‘inconvenient’ designs into wearable clothes isn’t ‘madness’ at all! No, au contraire; it is exactly what you need if you own a fashion label: intelligent ideas, authenticity and crafstmanship (needless to say that includes pattern making etc.) seamlessly applyable to more wearable fashion design.
We would hire a student with those abilities right away. Leider/Unfortunately/Helaas/Malheuresement we don’t own a fashion label.

Lookbook Images were photographed by the designers, as part of the annual ‘Collectie Arnhem’ study project. So for the best images made of this collection visit Collectie Arnhem’s Facebook, Instagram or site.

Each year again the ‘Collectie Arnhem’ production team manages to invite us to an unexpected place which we’ve never seen before! This year the fashion presentation was held at the newly opened NewWerktheater in Amsterdam, a build from the sixties which used to be a theater. A rather perfect location which will soon be opened for food and drinks (and more)

MBFWA Opening Night; Dutch Heritage.

MBFWA Opening Night; Dutch Heritage.

 Now that’s a good idea! Opening Mercedez Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam with a “Dutch Heritage” program. We are especially interested in the last show of the opening evening named Couture & Crafts; an overview show with (vintage) fashion by Dutch couturiers and designers dating from 1960 to 2016. As you all know we adore vintage Dutch fashion heritage, we even based a couple of our Mimi Berlin’s Fashion-Fests on Dutch designers such as Fong Leng and Dick Holthaus using vintage outfits from the kabinet-vintage-depot collection. We hope tickets are still available!
The Making Of… The Campaign Visual for Mercedes-Benz FashionWeek Amsterdam January 2016; Together with partners Mercedes-Benz, Make-up Studio, Elite models, Team Peter Stigter, Jurlights, Tommy Hagen and Westergasfabriek, FashionWeek Nederland developed a new campaign visual with model Milou and the dress created by Jef Montes.” (video via fashionweek-nederland)

Das Leben am Haverkamp

Das Leben am Haverkamp

On the last day of the Amsterdam Fashion Week a time slot was reserved for upcoming Dutch fashion talent. The so called Future Generation program presented 7 designers. A pleasant surprise at the exhibition space for us was GEFELICIFASHION, a celebration of conventions by Das Leben am Haverkamp, a collective of 4 fashion designers (Anouk van Klaveren, Christa van der Meer, Dewi Bekker and Gino Anthonisse) based in The Hague, The Netherlands.

Next to their collective work as Das Leben am Haverkamp, the four members of this group all have their own label as well. Since DLaH is also about collaboration we’d like to mention some Dutch photographers they chose to work with; Henri Verhoef, Imke Ligthart, Rik Versteeg and Lisandro Suriel, we feel their input reinforces the (fashion) vision of DLaH, good choice! We also love the fact that DLaH has a broader vision on fashion, reaching beyond clothes. It’s nice that they don’t over-stuff garments with ideas and visions; they have installations, performances and other means to do that. On the personal side; we, at Mimi Berlin, just like the aesthetics Das Leben am Haverkamp bring on.
