The latest issue of L’ Officiel Ukraine, captures Alejandra Alonso, well armored in Iris Van Herpen designs or Van Herpen- inspired outfits. Developing her sculptural silhouettes and her signature 3D structures, the Dutch designer is, undoubtedly, one of the major influences on the contemporary fashion scene. The upcoming Iris Van Herpen exhibition at Groniger Museum will present the first large scale overview of her work. That sounds really exciting, as Van Herpen is the designer who managed to challenge the very idea of contemporary “couture”. What about the new “Fang” shoes, the product of Van Herpen’s fifth successful collaboration with United Nude? Awesome pieces, huh?
