Liselore Frowijn presented Fall Winter 2016 womenswear collection during the recent Paris Fashion Week. The collection is inspired by art and feminine artists making a change and showing a different perspective.
The collection is a homage to all strong women who are living or have been living in this world, with Niki de St. Phalle as a muse. The beautiful round volumes this artist created with her Nana’s, together with the energetic and edgy approach the women I admire have towards life, formed an inspiration for this collection. I examined the strong signature of Niki’s work, and I started designing materials in a similar naïve but bold way; where soft vs. primary colors, curving vs. graphic dessins, sharp vs. soft materials and new vs. recycled textiles are contrasting aspects within the collection. The final image is created by the act of layering, collage and drawing. The silhouettes are strong as trees, sensual in a way and implacable surviving time. The collection is like a modern baroque party, with a paradoxical approach towards materials; where artisan and mechanical designed textiles can jointly exist.
