Capriole—Architectural Fashion Collection

Iris Van Herpen’s Capriole collection is inspired by contemporary architectural movements, compunded on a style that was influenced by her internship with ground-breaking designer Alexander McQueen. To achieve the highly sculptural effects in this collection, a technique mixing 3D printing with fabrics was employed. Notable in the bio-skeletalesque pieces, is the influence of renown Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava.
