Dutch designer Dorhout Mees knows how to wow the Dutch fashion lovers! Dorhout Mees showed a gorgeous collection for the S/S 2015 season. The collection named ‘O’ made my mouth fall open and made me sigh of the beauty I saw on the runway.
Dorhout Mees was inspired by water crystals and how they transform under influence of the environment. For example tears of joy has balanced water crystals that look pretty. While tears of pain or sadness look messy and broken. Within ‘O’ you can see this inspiration in different parts of the designs, like the shapes, prints and the use of material.
The collection has a clear idea while managing to show different elements and skills of the designer. Most looks had soft shapes, but some looks showed harder less flowy lines.
“Nothing is softer or more flexible than water, yet nothing can resist it” – Lao Tzu
The beauty of water and water crystals was really something that the collection tried to express. And they managed perfectly! The diversity, originality and feminine looks from the collection made me say “Ohhhh” more than just a couple times. I really loved the shapes from the designs, the use of different colors and materials. Can you imagine going to a special occasion wearing one of these fabulous pieces? Turning heads? I for sure can!
My final thought? ‘O’ my God, this designer is good!
