Designer RONALD VAN DER KEMP presented his Spring Summer 2022 Haute Couture Collection with a video featuring the legendary supermodel Pat Cleveland performing her debut single “I’m Falling In Love” captured at Amsterdam’s club Paradiso by director Kitty Kooring. The Can You Feel It? collection, that explores a meta averse universe full of IRL avatars, was made from waste materials, vintage scraps, and materials from previous RVDK collections. Designer incorporated the real roses into the embellishments, by dipping real petals in resin, and also melted down pewter plates, found in a thrift shop, to create a bodice and jewelry pieces. Many of looks were hand painted by the designer himself.
Photographer Ferry van der Nat captured the lookbook featuring Pat Cleveland, Riva Keuning, Ena Poppe, B, Ruoyi Yi, Marie Maite, Inge Geurts, Ayeshadjwala, and Shmunaaa. In charge of casting direction was William Lhoest, with production from Mirjam Bax. Beauty is work of hair stylist Bianca van Zwieten, makeup artist David Koppelaar, and manicurist Daniel Smedeman.
