Lawrence Malstaf x Iris Van Herpen Fall 2014




irisvanherpenAmazing installation from Lawrence Malstaf at Iris Van Herpens Fall 2014 show. Models vacuum packed between two layers of transparent PVC with accordion shaped hoses running down the sides and suspended in the air. The work of the Belgian artist is situated on the borderline between the visual and the theatrical. After having studied industrial design, he starts designs scenographies for choreographers and directors as Benoît Lachambre, Meg Stuart and Kirsten Delholm, than he develops more into installation and performance-art, strongly focused on movement, coincidence, order and chaos.


Futuristic, wearable and beautiful, the collection consisted of a mix of couture and ready to wear with 3-D printing in collaboration with Julia Koerner who created a kinetic dress which dances as it amplifies the bodies movements. The molded boots were from Iris’s collaboration with United Nude.
