To let out canines – figuratively or in a literal sense?
For everything set expressions «are known to go on a knife edge», «to let out canines» and to that similar, but to behold on a podium a literal embodiment of such ideas it is necessary not every day. The designer of Iris van Herpen is perfectly familiar to the world of the prestigious industry thanks to numerous test of borders of a dozvolennost, style and kitsch mixture and a shokirovaniye of unprepared public. On January 23 she was the special guest of Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture in Paris, and the audience again gasped and gasped over her unusual creativity.
At all without paying attention to clothes (that in a case with Iris van Herpen absolutely especially), accessories made an exit of each model small show. Footwear under «Fang» title (i.e. "Canine") stole all attention of public, and was why. Each smart low shoe leaned not on a platform, a hairpin or a platform sole, and on 10 sharp "canines" – выростов in the form of teeth of a predatory animal of especially huge sizes. With "canines" boots were supplied by the shoe company United Nude which not for the first time to turn Iris van Herpen plans into life – these two brands total already some joint projects.
The form of each canine is very difficult and freakish and, to achieve hotimy result though what of them it was individually melted from fibreglass and углеволокна in very slow process of casting. Of course – handwork shoes, and not very well what pair is unique. It is interesting only how with comfort to go in such "beauty" and as their balance is thought over. Though, it is necessary to admit, falling of models on display it was not fixed – thanking or to convenience in operation, or to the strengthened trainings.
Iris van Herpen represents a fashion in an art form, and her constant clients are Bjork and Lady Gaga. The real collection 2012 is inspired spring/summer with bacteria, and when developing separate models unique materials and technologies – for example, 3D the press were used.
