Dark and decadent, the Marlies Dekkers Fall 2013 ad campaign harks back to an era of rich indulgences, lavish decor and endless sensual appetites. The designs themselves reflect this past influence without looking outdated. In fact, the collection was greatly influenced by a recent tour of the Mauritshuis museum.

Once a privately owned house, the Mauritshuis museum now displays some of the most renowned Dutch painters’ work such as Rembrandt, Carel Fabritius and Johannes Vermeer. The Marlies Dekkers Fall 2013 collection embodies these masterpieces through its use of embroidered lace and mesh detailing amongst other elegant elements.

The museum even serves as the opulent backdrop for the Marlies Dekkers Fall 2013 ad campaign. It comes complete with fruit and flower props.
