Review Collection

“Magnetic Motion” was the title of Iris van Herpen’s show this afternoon, and it was indeed a collection in flux, both in terms of its inspiration and the continuing progression it represented for the designer.

The high-concept presentation was a little more subtle this season—away from the boil-in-the-bag models of last and at the top of Richard Rogers and Renzo Piano’s Pompidou Centre instead. The journey up six sets of escalators, through the exposed infrastructure of the building, to the terrace with its grand vista of Paris was part of the point: “To visualize something invisible, that is my ongoing fascination,” said the designer of her latest collection. And by choosing a revolutionary building that introduced the concept of doing just that in architecture, she made the first subtle move of a more subtle, light, and lyrical collection.
