Iris van Herpen just presented a new Couture collection called “Seijaku”. To create this collection designer explores the study of cymatics, which visualizes sound waves as evolving geometric patterns. In cymatics, the higher the frequency of the sound wave, the more complex the visible patterns. “Seijaku” is the Japanese word and concept for finding serenity amidst life’s chaos. Iris van Herpen known for her artisanal, naturalistic approach to design, she has also several pieces in the Manus x Machina exhibit currently on view at the Metropolitan in New York. To provide a seamless experience between the show and its concept, Van Herpen collaborated with the Japanese musician Kazuya Nagaya to create a Zen bowl sound installation.The artist performs live during the show in the L’Oratoire du Louvre. The Dutch designer closed the show with a stunning 3D dress made entirely of handblown glass bubbles. Take a look.
