Fairytale Queen Fashion
The Iris Van Herpen 2012 Collection is Fantastically Royal

The Iris Van Herpen 2012 SS collection looks more like art than articles of clothing.

The series is a wondrous experiment with magical realities and precise elegance. While all articles were essentially opaque, each was coated with a textured material that made each piece stand out. The series is reminiscent of fantasy royalty. From Ice Queens to Woodland Elves to Mermaid Princesses, the collation boasts elegance and intensely imaginative architecture. A memorable piece featured was a dress seemingly rendered out of bark. The designer says of her work on her site, “For me fashion is an expression of art that is very closely related to myself and to my body. I see it as my expression of identity combined with desire, mood and cultural setting.”

The Iris Van Herpen 2012 SS collection is a super chic walk in the shoes of royalty.
