Fashion | Alchemist that is Iris van Herpen

Flicking through September 2012 issue of Vogue Paris. Mindless enough. Page 242. Not mindless. A sheath dress coming out of brown plume. “Refinery Smoke”. An encasement of bones. “Skeleton Dress”. These are some of the artworks of a Dutch fashion designer Iris van Herpen. And I thought I had plenty to speechlessly stare at and fantasize to, and generally melt into subconscious goo, with Alexander McQueen and Gareth Pugh flawlessly underscored by Ruth Hogben. I am a rabbit in the headlights, and the headlights look good.
