A broken record is what I am. Every season:

“OMG OMG DID YOU GUYS SEE IRIS VAN HERPEN?”

I am consistently blown away. Look deeper into the obvious, surface-level effects and silhouettes, and you’ll see designs blazing the trail with forward materials, unbelievable craftsmanship and true inspiration. I don’t care what anyone says, this woman is a treasure to contemporary fashion. A TREASURE.

The Fall 2014 collection popped unto my instagram feed literally minutes ago, and I about died. Put everything down, took some deep breaths, and prepared myself for some intense fashion festing. It’s my every post-apocalyptic fantasy, actualized. What I wouldn’t do to trade places with Sooj in that vaccum display of horror and beauty (concept by artist Lawrence Malstaf).
