Dutch fashion designer Addy van den Krommenacker launches BOSCH BY ADDY, a special Jheronimus Bosch collection, exactly 500 years after the painter’s passing.
The painting, The Garden of Earthly Delights, has always captured the fashion designer van den Krommenacker’s interest.
There are definitely many contradictions found among the masterpieces of Jheronimus Bosch, creating a challenge for him to design this collection.
The collection itself is divided into three parts, like the triptych of Bosch, and there exists three elements in the dresses. The green section, Forest represents nature within women. The blue section, Heaven symbolizes the romantic woman. And the third section in white, Essential is the women’s essential base. The dutch couturier used very innovating fabrics such as brocade with a patent overlay, even a glossy new fabric made of fishing line. With these new fabrics the dresses evolve into pieces of art. There are some woven dresses included in the Bosch design group, and all the printed dresses are carefully created by TGM International, masters in print.
