Iris van Herpen Exhibit in Atlanta

If you find yourself in Atlanta in the next six months, the Iris van Herpen retrospective, currently on view at the High Museum of Art is a must-see. It is the first fashion exhibit at the High Museum and I could not think of a better one to inaugurate what I hope becomes a tradition. Actually, I am sure it will, as the 2,3000-strong crowd that came for the exhibit’s opening left no doubt about where the public attention is channeled today.

Video: Iris Van Herpen x Russell Maliphant

This video with clothes by Iris van Herpen and choreography by Russel Maliphant was shot by Warren Du Preez and Nick Thornton Jones, who have collaborated with Bjork and Alexander McQueen, for AnOther Magazine. The music is by Salvador Breed, who has done all the music for Iris van Herpen (and not just because they are a couple!).

Iris van Herpen x The Corner

We would like to present the capsule collection of the Dutch designer Iris van Herpen created exclusively for The Corner. The collection is characteristic of van Herpen’s body of work, especially evident in its “liquid” fabrics that give the garments their otherworldly, ethereal feel.
