mono.kultur #47 Iris van Herpen

At the end of Iris van Herpen’s Haute Couture Fall 2018 show titled ‘Syntopia’, an otherworldly, bird-like creature ambled down the runway with intricately layered wings that undulated like a stingray’s fins underwater. Inspired by the possible futures that emerge when biology intersects with engineering, the collection seemed to occupy a space between commonly accepted dichotomies – land versus sea; nature versus technology; organic versus inorganic. Since starting her eponymous label in 2007 at the age of 23, Iris van Herpen has become renowned for her sculptural designs that transcend the boundaries of fashion. [publisher's note]
