Entitled ‘A New Bowtie’ this artful collection by Maartje Van Hooij dares to push visual boundaries while challenging the ideals of traditional fashion. While this collection of sculptural elements can be considered as a series of art, its wearable quality also allows it to function as a clothing collection.

Based in Rotterdam, Netherlands, the visionary designer studied at Willem De Kooning and is a recent graduate of the institution. Taking inspiration from the idea of a traditional bow-tie concept, the designer aims to create a fresh and conceptual take on the accessories that drive our image-obsessed society.

These accessories like the traditional bow-tie are often representative of wealth, success and a certain air that is ordinary and without creativity. Infused with an air of both art and dimension, these Maartje Van Hooij designs are a never-before-seen look at the future of fashion.
