Focus On: Nanna Van Blaaderen

Dutch designer Nanna van Blaaderen designs that posses an aesthetic that attributes as much importance to art as it does to fashion.
Her two collections, 'More or Less' and ' Species: a Tribute', boast pieces that are visually striking. Van Blaaderen keeps a focus on the environment and offers these designs as an alternative to fur. 
Her achievements have not gone unnoticed, with a collaboration with Maison Martin Margiela and exhibitions at numerous museums, under her belt. 
Her 'Species: a Tribute' collection is a result of experimenting with knitting and braiding techniques. The result is one that takes requires an adjective that far surpasses the likes of 'enthralling' and 'amazing'.

What is not to love! It's healing just looking at it.
