Spring summer 2011
Iris van Herpen’s Haute Couture spring summer 2011 collection wasn’t inspired by origami but by the sculptures of Kris Kuksi. But I still think the amazing shapes and structure to her garments make them very origami like. The strong lines and sharp edges and smooth curves create very sculptural eye catching garments which to me could be translated into origami shapes. . I also like the use of shiny almost industry look of her garments as the light bounces of them eliminating them when worn. I was just drawn to the amazing structure and volumizing curves strong edges of Iris Van Herpen’s Haute Couture collection.
