Titled 'VOLTAGE,' the Iris van Herpen Spring Couture 2013 collection is amped up with texture.

This collection is perhaps the most cutting-edge from Paris couture week thus far. Iris van Herpen's dedication to avant-garde design has lead to the utilization of 3D printing to create these textural garments. The daring pieces are captivating with their futuristic aesthetic that boasts chic shock value.

According to WWD, van Herpen was "inspired by a childhood dream, a desire to understand control and re-create lightning." The 3D-printed dresses certainly capture electrifying energy as each piece boasts organic movement that redefines garment structure. With the complexity of each voluminous look, the Iris van Herpen Spring Couture 2013 is a groundbreaking exploration of modern textile.
