During Prelude last month, upcoming designer label MATTIJS showed its SS 2010 collection.
Named Florish Odalisk, this collection by Dutch designer Mattijs van Bergen examines the structures and features of flowers, resulting in a feminine and fluent collection with a colourful statement. Soft silks melt around the body, combined with Van Bergen’s signature pleating. Airy constructions breathe spring softness and capture a summer feeling.
This is MATTIJS’ fourth full ready-to-wear collection since graduating from Central Saint Martins College in London in 2007.
