Anbasja Blanken debuts on the 24th Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam with her Day Dreamed collection inspired by a poem by English romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley.
I bring fresh showers for the thirsting flowers,
From the seas and the streams;
I bear light shade for the leaves when laid
In their noonday dreams.
From my wings are shaken the dews that waken
The sweet buds every one,
When rocked to rest on their mother's breast,
As she dances about the sun.
I wield the flail of the lashing hail,
And whiten the green plains under,
And then again I dissolve it in rain,
And laugh as I pass in thunder.
(The Cloud by Percy Bysshe Shelley)
Besides the poetic beauty, pure femininity is an element of importance in the creations of Anbasja Blanken.
Her collection is romantic and soft as the poem. With knee-length skirts and flowy long dresses, satin trousers, tops and shirts with feminine curves and accents to the waist.
Shades of nude and pastels, rich shiny jacquard woven fabrics, flower prints and embroidery all to see the craftsmanship of the debuting designer, giving us a feeling of elegance and luxury, leaving us with a promise for future collections.
A designer to watch!
