Roderick is a lovely young fashion design student from ArtEZ, Arnhem. Last year he interned at Alexander Wang in New York City and he’s working on his graduation collection as we speak. I personally think he’s a very talented and charming guy that I loved spending time with when I was still in school. When I saw this small collection of his, I knew I had to post it! I love the style, the way the fabrics seem to glow like the milky-way and the way the clothes seem to move on the pictures. A very successful Toile-de-Luxe if you ask me. I asked him what the collection was all about and who he’s chosen to work with.
“The idea behind my collection is going back to our roots, far far back, in prehistory. A big primal feeling I am having at this moment. The awareness where everything passes us by so quickly and so fast right now, sometimes without even noticing. Which almost gives me the feeling of living like a robot. So where did we, as humans, start. Where did we still use all our senses and nerves. Going back to a time where people lived in extreme basics and all things arose from working in primary conditions.” He said.
He has collected an all American team for his Toile-de-Luxe shoot and he travelled back to New York City to make it work. And he did. We’re looking forward to graduation!
