MATTIJS VAN BERGEN – LONDON F/W 2012 FASHION SHOW
Two weeks after Mattijs Van Bergen showed in Amsterdam, he wowed audiences at London Fashion Week with his “Starbust” Fall 2012 collection. The collection was inspired by some of Bergen’s favorite childhood films, including The Never Ending Story and Star Wars. These inspirations were translated into looks with a clear robotic and geometric aesthetic, but also surprisingly feminine, almost Amazonian, evening gowns in blues and golds. Pieces of Bergen’s personality can be found in every detail of this collection, from designing his own footwear, to having models walk to the Star Wars’ Imperial March.
