Today I want to share my view on the Ready to Fish show with all of you.Ready to fish by Ilja Visseris a ready to wear line with casual and chic items. Unfortunately my own photos did not turn out that well so all credits for these photos go to fashion photography Peter Stigter and his team!During last winters fashion week I got to see my first Ready to Fish show and I fell in love with the skills of this designer. The pieces shown were original and very wearable.
This edition I was super happy when I got an invitation and I was looking forward to seeing this show a lot. The show started and I immediately recognized the simplicity and femininity that I had seen at the previous show from Ilja Visser as well. The collection was playful and mature with graphic prints, primary shapes on some designs (which made me think of the fashion is art trend as seen at Celine, Prada and Chanel for S/S2014). Ilja Visser showed us with her new collection that she can design for different types of women. Besides simplicity and femininity her designs showed sophistication, sportiness, and some items where really chic as well.
Above all I loved the use of happy colors, both popping colors and soft colors, like lilac, yellow, lavender blue, purple and of course black and white.
Of course I picked out some favorites and to my surprise most of them are looks with the lilac / lavender blue color. So this color really gets my attention. It’s probably because in these colors every skin color looks gorgeous and I think this color is very easy to style as well. My favorite items where everything from the second look (above), the off-white sweater and jacket from look 5 & 6 (below) and the total looks 8 & 9! Wow I am having a lot of favorites haha. I can not wait for this collection to come in stores and shop some of them to show you next summer!
