Dutch fashion designer PEET DULLAERT presented the Fall Winter 2022 Haute Couture Collection with a show held in Paris. The For the Oceans collection celebrates the 10th anniversary of the brand. For this season, Dullaert returns to his main inspiration, love for tthe oceans and admiration for the human body. Paying homage to the ocean’s luminous colours, the tidal waves that breathe movement, the transcendent flow that connects us mortals; the oceans have been our guiding architect.
I do not want to wax eloquence about sustainable development, I want the house’s history of work and recognition of our clients that adorn our creations to speak louder. Whilst we celebrate 10 years of the brand, I am reminded that as a global collective we are running out of time. With the urgency that engulf us, this collection is my reminder to celebrate more passionately than I have ever before, the people and the planet. – Peet Dullaert
What is beauty, the question that is the bane of our industry’s existence, cannot be addressed with only the presentation of the end product on the runway. I want to deconstruct the set norms of Couture and show you the process done differently. From the cuts that mold on the body, to embrace it, not claim; our inspiration at the Atelier is rooted in celebration of the myriad of human silhouettes. Triangles where the moon, sun and earth meet, a tidal wave to honour the movement of the body. You are meant to live in our clothes, to dance, to eat, to be. The creations, crafted by artisanal fabric manipulation, resulting in unique surfaces that honour nature, reinterpret suiting and flou-tailoring. The exploration of organic shapes and the human anatomy through re-invented techno-pleat designs is what the collection speaks to. – from press release
