Iris Van Herpen “Conception into Cyberspace” 「イリス・ヴァン・ヘルぺン in 西武渋谷店」

Seibu Shibuya has re-opened after a full-scale remodelling and to celebrate the new looks, the Seibu Museum held a wonderful exhibition by Dutch fashion designer Iris Van Herpen.

Van Herpen studied Fashion Design in The Netherlands and interned at Alexander McQueen in London.  In 2007, she started her own label.

Van Herpen’s designs have always found a source of inspiration in other art forms.  After feeling a bit limited by fabric, she started experimenting with other materials that could allow her to build, construct and sculpt her designs. It is not surprising that the word “sculptural” is often used to describe her works.  But these are wearable sculptures that allowed the body to move, adjust and adapt therefore creating new forms.

Van Herpen worked with Japanese shoe designer Noritaka Tatehana and had 3D printed crystals sprouting from the soles of his signature heelless platform shoes
