On Saturday the 16 th of January I went together with photographer and dear friend Afagh, to the Autumn/Winter Fashion Show of SIS by Spijkers en Spijkers. This show was all about the Moon and the inspiration that both designers got during their trip earlier that year to Shanghai. Strong and independent women are a true inspiration for Truus and Riet. But also their muse; Ching Shih, a pirate and a princess of the Chinese Sea in the 18th century were leading in this collection. You can see there is a big variety in the colors and materials they used. Some things that are typically Spijkers en Spijkers are the graphic cuts, designs and there theme-inspired prints. I loved the woolen suits in the large tartan prints and the accessoiries, like the XXL mirror earrings. The looks on the catwalk offerd so much variety. The double breasted coats in mohair, with the fake fur collars, or the super soft dresses, made of crêpe de Chine, wool and satin both elegant and comfortable. Even jeans and sweatshirts made their appearance on the catwalk. Like the SISters would say "....full moon is rising..."
