Ilja Paris haute couture 2015Monday, 6 July 2015
Paris Haute couture has started and this Sunday Ilja Visser showed her newest collection.called Ingenium Existere. 'Ingenium' means 'engeneering' and 'Existere' means 'existing'. All forms convey their own patterns, and they are made up of the same shapes, configurations, and logic. The elements, in which Ilja chooses to engineer her couture, are a mix of nostalgic techniques, poetic silhouettes and the nonchalant attitude of its hometown: Amsterdam. Ingenium Existere's silouhettes are sculpted in clean-cut panels that are constructed into poetic feminine volumes with an edgy, strong attitude.
Ilja's inspirations for her Fall Winter 15/16 collection come from the 90s denim look with cargo-pants, oversized jackets and baggy dungarees as well as the New Look from Dior's 1947 massive couture impact. Because of the clean cuts and sharp shapes, the overall look also becomes a peek into the future with a wink to Metropolis.
