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)

Dutch Fashion Award Shows 2012

It’s Fashion Week in The Netherlands, to be more specific it’s Amsterdam Fashion week. We visited the annual, and always fun, award shows.
Petite Défilé de la Couture, June 11, 2012:

The Frans Molenaar Prize in a nutshell:
 
5 students, 4 outfits each. Graduation collections picked from academies in The Netherlands.
This year’s result: 4 designers educated at ArtEZ, Arnhem, 1 designer educated at The Royal Academy of the Arts, The Hague.
Winner of the award was
Peet Dullaert.


Last year’s result: Winner Magnus Dekker, also graduated at ArtEZ, Arnhem, showed his couture collection made with the FM Prize he won last year.

The défilé was held at
The Master Tailor Institute in Amsterdam. Except for the outfits of Hoi Man Cheung (from The Hague) there wasn’t much new to be discovered here for us,as we already visited the fashion show in Arnhem. But as the models wearing Peet Dullaert passed us buy in the tiny school hallway we did discover something new. This collection made music, a mesmerizing, rich sound of clicking gemstones, in a perfect rhythm. Imagine that as a soundtrack for your fashionshow! Unfortunately it was an unused, tout gratuit, bonus. Never mind that, P.D’s clothing is fun, immaculately tailored refined and fashionable. A well deserved winner of the €10.000 prize!

@ AFW Westergas, Amsterdam. June 12,2012:

This year’s result: A very entertaining show, and, as always, a great overview of all the  dutch graduation students and academies in a non-school setting.

The
award winner is Yvonne Kwok, she graduated from the Amsterdam Fashion Institute. She showed a truly, lovely and happy(?) collection, filled with immaculately executed details in different fabrics. So much to be discovered in one outfit! This collection can hold itself at a show as well as up close.
