Marlies Dekkers invited me on the trip to Lapland. Apart from all the great and fun activities we did, the fall 2011 Fashion Show was planned on saturday evening. The bus took us to a cottage in the middle of a forest. Imagine this: candle light dinner, reindeer skin, everyone dressed up by the dresscode ‘roaring twenties’, Mathilde Santing singing. Romantism all over the place. Not quite a coincidence because the new collection of Marlies Dekkers told us her love story. She is deeply in love and while her man wrote her a song (which Mathilde Santing sang) she dedicated this collection to him.
After this we learned that the brand Marlies Dekkers is, from now on, divided into two brands: the haute couture line marlies | dekkers and the younger, cool brand called Undressed. To speak in images: Lady Gaga would go for option one (a bit more extravagant), I will go for the second one (a bit more minimalistic). I love the new typography. And if Marlies Dekkers uses my body as a canvas with her designs I will be sure to feel like a foxy, fashionable lady. Even underneath my clothes.
