Ocean Plastic goes Haute Couture

Ocean Plastic goes Haute Couture

The dutch fashion designerIris Van Herpen stands out on the contemporary international scene thanks to her sculptural works, born from the combination of technological avant-garde and experimentation with materials.

The self-titled brand is synonymous with slow fashion and has a multidisciplinary approach to collaborations with artists, architects and scientists. Each collection is the result of a complex research to go beyond today’s definition of a garment, exploring new forms of femininityfor a more meaningful, diversified and conscious fashion for the future.

In the Haute Couture Spring-Summer 2021 “Roots of Rebirth” collection, Van Herpen proposes, according to her ethereal and transcendental vision, the dialogue between the Earth and the underground world, both closely linked by the profound relationship between the human body and nature.

The clothes are made of Ocean Plastic® fabric, obtained from plastic waste collected by Parley for the Oceans, one of the most virtuous waste-recovery organizations.

The yarn of which this textile is composed is high quality and it seems like a silk of organic origin. It has attracted enormous interest in the textile field giving life to collaborations with famous brands such as Adidas, Stella McCartney, Corona and many others.

Van Herpen has always been careful for the environmental issue. About that she says “Currently climate change is a matter of decision-making, it is no longer a question of higher or lower quality. Basically, there are not many reasons to not use sustainable materials, apart from changing collective mindset”.
