AIFW: Marloes Blaas
One of the benefits of being a Grazia Insider is that I get invited to some fashion shows. The show of Marloes Blaas during the Amsterdam International Fashion Week was one of them. And I must admit, I seriously love this collection. It is really wearable and my style. I am so glad that I could join this show.
The swing of the fifties were the beating heart for the autumn/winter 2011 collection of Marloes Blaas.
Marloes based her collection, called ‘A woman’s merit’, on the individual woman how is standing up nowadays. The outfits contains high closed thin knits combine with an oversized bag.
But you can also see a heavy cape of laminated fabrics. The middle is classic with items like a tube skirt and a knitted jumper. Also the working clothes of the woman from the fifties passed by. Think about proper fabric dresses and high waisted trousers with work aprons. The story ends with light shades like grey, baby blue denim and cream. You can see materials like silk, thin leather and open knits. In the context of the reuse, what you saw a lot in the fifties, Marloes used old face maps that were used by pilots in the war.
The silhouettes from Marloes Blaas shines a strong and independent atmosphere.
