Iris van Herpen's 'Ludi Naturae' for Spring 2018

Iris van Herpen amazed once again her audience with her perfect designs. This time presenting games of nature: Ludi Naturae. Inspired by the complexity of nature she put an interesting collection on the runway during Paris Couture Week.
This spring 2018 collection is vivid and optimistic, fusing the artificial with the organic. The color palette is from skin colours to faded greens, yellows, blues and purples.
Leaf-like patterns are 3D printed, lasercutting is used for perforated diminishing patterns, Iris shows how to combine the latest technology in haute couture and making us believe it is very wearable!

The dutch designer examines the natural and manmade landscapes of our world from a bird’s-eye view, tracing the laws of entropy.
Following the original inspiration, Van Herpen collaborated with the Dutch artist Peter Gentenaar, who is known for capturing ‘organic memory’ and motion in his delicate large-scale cellulose sculptures. For this show, Gentenaar created a site-specific floating installation that blossoms around the garments as the models move.
