A designer that thrives on taking inspiration from all modes of art, ranging from music to culture to people, is none other than Liselore Frowijn. In 2013, Frowijn graduated with honors from the ArtEz Institute of Arts with a Bachelors of Fashion Design. Her graduate collection was entitled “Afternoon of a Replicant,” where she studied the clashes and complexities between sportswear and luxury-wear. By taking inspiration from the bright colors of a Matisse painting and developing modern suits for women, Frowijn began her infusion of art into fashion. Since graduation, she has presented her numerous collections at fashion weeks across Europe, including London, Paris, and Amsterdam.
Fall/Winter 2016 for Frowijn is defined by bold patterns and exceptionally vibrant colors. The gold metallic, embellished mini-skirt could easily be made casual for brunch and shopping or dressed-up for a night out on the town. The use of bright colors and adventurous shapes on trench coats, wide-leg pants and scarves played with the youthful knotted earrings and scalloped necklaces. Purple, red, pink and green retro polkadots are seen in forms of vests, capes and dresses. To counter the evocative presence of vivid prints, the usage of fur creates a surprisingly seductive feel to the otherwise artful looks. The pieces Liselore Frowijn presents in her latest collection rethink traditional ideas of fashion, and her confidence to takes risks unveils a bold success this season.
