check out Mattijs van Bergen, a Dutch Saint Martins graduate who interned with his idols, Victor & Rolf..
"The inspiration for this collection and its pleating came from the textures and decorations on cakes and icecream," he says. "I started studying fashion by discovering Viktor & Rolf. I was raised in a very creative environment - both my parents work in art - so I've always leaned towards working in a creative field. After leaving secondary school, I either wanted to become an actor or a designer. But at that very time I saw more and more of Viktor & Rolf's work and realised how wide the field of imagination in fashion truly is. I did an interview at the ArtEZ Institue of the Arts in Arnhem, where they both went, and studied there before coming to Saint Martins."
next season - more cakes? "At the moment, my muse is the West Wing's Mary Louise Parker. She is so quirky-beautiful and a wonderful actress."
"If the cinema industry has taught us a lesson since its appearance is that relationships don't always last and one is inevitably bound to get a broken heart. Yet the vast majority of jewelery that celebrates the concept of love never reveales the fragility of romantic relationships. The Heartbreak consists of a fragile porcelen heart and light yet strong titanium hammer, booth are connected and made unsperable by a titanium chaine. When broken the heart will show cracks, yet it wil never fall appart as there is a layer of rubber on the inside that will keep the heart together. Indeed as one will usually recover from a broken heart, the small cracks will inevitably add up and form who we are."
