Fun, funky and chic, Ronald Van der Kemp’s second RVDK couture collection for fall 2015 is a blast of patterns and couture wear. He showed off his collection in an empty apartment near Place de la Concorde.
Van der Kemp created his whole collection from leftover fabrics from an Italian handbag factory, where he found some exotic skins, and from a past Dutch designer named Frans Molenaar. He let all his artistic creativity out on these pieces creating the most unique collection from couture fall yet.
From a plaid reconstructed jacket paired with a pin striped skirt to patriotic American flag flared jeans paired with an oversized tan and white fur coat, this collection is anything but boring. Inspiration is pulled from all different eras like a 60’s black and white jail striped shift dress with flared sleeves; An 80’s rocker vibed plaid flared pants and shredded leather jacket as well as a stunning avant garde mini dress with shoulder pads made with various sheer metallic fabrics; Of course the popular 70’s inspo made the collection with all kinds of flared jeans and a long funky floral print maxi skirt paired with a light-weight jean ruffled long sleeve; And even some 30’s styles were featured with a long military navy blue coat with shoulder pads and gold buttons.
Van der Kemp excelled with his second RVDK couture collection and it was definitely the most exciting to see. We hope that this is not the last from him and there is more to come.
