An early collaboration by Gino Anthonisse and Christa van der Meer in the beginning of 2014, collaged on Gino’s “Lost Wonder” collection. Published in Belgian magazine: Kwintessens 2014-2
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. Continue reading →

Maison the Faux at Amsterdam Fashion Week. Maison the Faux is a fairly new label which showed for the second time at Amsterdam Fashion Week, they presented their newest collection “Make a U-turn if possible” for Spring 2015 at the Transformatorhuis, the smallest catwalk at Amsterdam Fashion Week. It’s hard to describe this show, we won’t even try. Luckily we made a short movie so you can see and hear for yourself. Important part of this show were the musical performers; Steal Me, three ladies with great voices and the same amount of hysterical power as the collection and the setting of the show at the Transformatorhuis.
Designers Joris Suk and Hans Hutting presented a romantic collection with a nineties-hippie-rave vibe to it (to put it in a nutshell). Lingerie-inspired shapes and fabrics with romantic touches, such as for example chrochet and ostrich leather (in violet) passed us by. Combined with more down-to-earth prints (made with fashion illustrations) and sturdy jeans which were soft, over-sized, bell bottomed, bleached, torn and ripped to complete the total look. (We saw these jeans at their first show last season; maybe they are a Maison the Faux “Basic”?), With all garments being detailed to the bone there was a lot to see! Maison the Faux has many ideas and we love the fact that they want to share them with us in just one show (styled by Ruud van der Peijl). But, more importantly, they managed well to mould all these ideas into one collection. In our opinion they showed the full package, including ravishing jewelry and bags.

Wir sind gespannt, we liked his trompe l’oeil printed garments very much, and are curious how they will look after going through an actual (mass) production process.
