Iris Van Herpen the next Alexander McQueen

23 Aug

Iris Van Herpen’s Fall/Winter 2011-12 collection combines traditional hand-sewing techniques and rapid-prototyping to stunning effect.

The fashion commentariat is proclaiming Iris Van Herpen the next Alexander McQueen. With Capriole, her Fall/Winter 2011-12 collection, it’s easy to see why. Revealed at the hyper-exclusive Paris Couture Show this summer, the 27-year-old Dutch fashion designer’s line packed the runway with so many showstoppers — from a tube dress that looked like it was frozen in ice to a frightening minidress crawling with slithery, Medusian coils — it could’ve knocked Anna Wintour’s sunglasses right off her helmet head. As one blogger put it: “Ladies and gentlemen, I think we just found our next fashion legend. HO. LY. SHIT.”
