Dutch fashion designer Iris Van Herpen blends cutting-edge technology and classic motifs in her thought-provoking garments. Van Herpen’s most recent collection, Shift Souls, was showcased at Paris Fashion Week and featured dresses that play with structure and color to blur the boundaries between fashion, technology, and art.
In a statement on the brand’s website about the collection, Van Herpen explains that she was inspired by the fluidity of identity change in myths, particularly from Japan. The stories “gave me the inspiration to explore the deeper meaning of identity and how immaterial and mutable it can become within the current coalescence of our digital bodies.”
I am so excited that my article on groundbreaking jewelry artist #ShanaKroiz and her use of powder coat paint will be published in Metalsmith Magazine. Shana's work is not new to Metalsmith Magazine as you can see on the left her work graced the cover of this prestigious magazine. However, as you can see on the right her powder coated jewelry is an amazing entry into this innovative design technique.
Needless to say, I am her biggest fan! For more information visit https://www.shanakroizjewelry.com/.
