Fashion designer Boaz van Doornik shares with Design SCENE his latest Spring Summer 2018 collection. Inspired by the Dutch nature, the colours range from terracotta tones to mustard yellow and natural greens.
The basis of the collection was inspired by a few dried oak leaves that Van Doornik found at home, crushed between the pages of a book. “I do remember placing them in the book, but I totally forgot about them. When I found them, it was like finding a treasure! It was winter and there were no leaves on the ground anywhere. I loved the old leaves, weathered by the ravages of time.” Finding these leaves took him back to his childhood and the amount of leaves he used to pick up during the forest walks he made with his father. Especially the ‘propellers’, that every kid loved to play with, revived Van Doorniks fascination for shapes and structures of leaves and seeds. “When I found them, it was like finding a treasure!” – from Boaz Van Doornik
