Amsterdam Fashion Week celebrates Dutch fashion
Jul '13
In its 19th edition that concluded recently, the Amsterdam Fashion Week offered a chance to several Dutch and other designers to showcase their talent.
Offering a journey to 60s of Brigitte Bardot, the SIS collection by Spijkers & Spijkers featured stripes, onesies, off the shoulder tops, Gingham, waist belt and skinny silhouettes with floral prints on bright organza and chiffon fabrics. Also their beach-inspired collection of playful skirts, loose blouses, wide dresses and high-waist pants took the audience on a trip to the French Riviera. 
Jimmy Paul of MaryMe presented his vibrant collection embracing pieces like printed suits, fluffy fur-like dresses and tops bathed in lots of colours.
Anne de Grijff tried luring audience with her 18th century inspired collection for women. On show were heavy leather pieces like coats, long skirts, and short tops in colour palettes of black, beige, orange and off-white. Also, on display were long robe of translucent raincoats.
At Winde Rienstra were on show clothing pieces inspired by Russian country homes, much in black shades with white lining, floral prints and pink degrade.
Allan Vos took the audience on a trip to Japan with his Japanese-inspired collection with some touches of Middle East fashion. Several male models clad in tight shorts, sheer body tight sweaters, striped pants and somewhat feminine inspired jackets walked the floor for the designer. Some pieces like an extremely wide gold/yellow pleated pants and a graphical printed black and white legging drew all eyes.
Presenting his collection for Cold Method, Dutch designer Dieter de Cock featured pieces like paisley skirt, white tees, stylish sweatpants and a New York Yankee cap. Hues of red and blues marked the collection with lots of checks, dots and side stripe print.
Celebrity stylist Danie Bles in her collection ByDanie featured models in studded leather pants, sequined dresses, shiny jumpsuits and leopard printed cardigans and maxi skirts.
Claes Iversen collection with the Dutch summer rain as inspiration showed a collection with different layers, lengths and volumes, where the waist came inspired by the shape of an umbrella. Animal printed dresses and yellow raincoats finished other looks.
Representing Roya Hesam, Nouveau presented a collection of elegant pieces in black and white.
Francisco Benthum was inspired by scuba diving and deep sea world which showed in his collection featuring men in stripes, pink and gray.
