At Peet Dullaert’s Showroom in the Atelier Neérlandais, Paris

Mimi Berlin visited the showroom of Dutch Fashion designer Peet Dullaert in the Atelier Neérlandais in Paris.

Next to limited edition pieces and accesories Peet Dullaert’s Collection 2017-1 filled the showroom.
“The 2017-1 is a collection inspired by the under the sea adventures of the French explorer Jaques Cousteau. The breathtaking fragility of beauty of coral reefs and with that life. Photographed in the atelier of French sculpture Philippe Morel. After discovering artist Philippe Morel, Peet Dullaert found echo of his own universe; an exploration of organic shape and human anatomy.” (read more at peetdullaert.com)

ArtEZ Fashion Masters 2017 at the Atelier Neérlandais in Paris

ArtEZ Fashion Masters 2017 at the Atelier Neérlandais in Paris

On thursday March 2, the 18th generation of the fashion design master of ArtEZ University of the Arts Arnhem presented itself at Paris Fashion Week at the Atelier Néerlandais.  Graduates Klaudia Stavreva and Lotte van Dijk presented part of their final collections, These presentations can be seen at the Atelier Neérlandais, which will be open to the public, until Sunday, March 5.

The images above were made during the ‘Meet & Greet’ collection presentation. Yours truly, Mimi Berlin, was part of the expert-team, together with Mattia Akkermans, Hector Castro and Esther Oomen, who got invited to discuss, comment and review the collections made by second-year MA Fashion Design students Klaudia Stavreva and Lotte van Dijk. They will finalize and present this work in June 2017.

Lotte van Dijk created a slightly dingy nook in the luxurious Atelier Neérlandais. in which she showed her models one by one, her outfits gave a ‘Calamity Jane gone Glamazon’ vibe to us. Not only because Lotte used guns as props and styled her ourfits with western boots but also because of the ‘casualness’ the designs; oversized, slip-on, layered and raw edged. Lotte van Dijk generaly “based her collection on the way painters depict textiles” and in particular the “brushstrokes of Marlene Dumas”. Lotte painted directly on the clothes herself or translated her paintings in, for instance, embroidery and jaquards.

Klaudia Stavreva shared a personal, intimate story with us. To her, family and her (Eastern Europe) roots are important. That became clear in the performance-like presentation of her BOSSTVRVA collection. Accompanied by a video of Klaudia and her sister, dressed up as men and dancing around in a livingroom (that’s what they used to do when they were little) the Stavreva sisters dressed the models on stage. That way we could also see the make and the reverse side of the designs, like, for example: bandeau tops with shiny embellishments hidden on the inside. The Sworn Virgins of Albania were also clearly an inspiration source for Stavreva, hence the manly silhouettes and the, seemingly, oversized clothes.

As always we advice you to go see for yourself if you are interested. You can do that today and tomorrow (3 – 5 March 2017) from 9:30 – 18:00, at the Atelier Néerlandais (121, Rue de Lille, 75007 Paris)

ArtEZ Masters in Fashion Design dans Paris

ArtEZ Master in Fashion Design dans Paris

Yesterday (3/4/2016) the generation #17 of graduates at the ArtEZ University of the Arts Masters in Fashion presented their collections in Paris at the Atelier Néerlandais.

Graduates Sunna Örlygsdóttir, Hee Kim, Lisa Förster and alumnus from generation #14, Simeon Morris each got a room in which they created an individual atmosphere to show their collections in. They all opted for a tableaux-vivant, which is a smart choice; the public is able to come upclose, take pictures and have a talk with the designer, well, that’s what we did anyways. The students got to meet with experts from the fashion industry (invited by ArtEZ’s Master in Fashion Design course director Mark van Vorstenbos) Alexandre Morgado (VIP designer Marc Jacobs), Laura Vernier (Headhunter Paris), Hector Castro (stylist, o.a. 10Men, Givenchy), Esther Loonen (Alumna Arnhem Masters, designer oa Isabel Marant) and Marisol Ferradas (Agent, oao Christophe Lemaire, Forte Forte) discussed the collections with the students. The collections were “preview” collections, they will be finished, including the tips from the experts, and shown in Arnhem when they actually graduate in June or July 2016.
