The Lobster House in Amsterdam truly was the place to be for everyone who’s in love with the luxury casuals by Dante 6. The trendy new restaurant served as the perfect setting for a the down-to-earth Dutch brand, creating an original and intimate way to showcase their new F/W ’13 collection.
While enjoying some food and drinks, an amazing intro movie, projected on the vintage white-painted brick wall, gave us a delicate teaser of what was yet to come. A stunning montage of images, varying from images from nature (shot by a documentary-maker from National Geographic) to kaleidoscopic abstract images of colors, set to hypnotizing and energetic music, led us into the actual fashion show.
A show that, like the intro-movie, was original and mesmerizing. On three spinning platforms, all the models stood stock-still and stunningly beautiful for us to get a perfectly detailed look at them. From black to jewel-toned blue, from forest green to golden brown and from blush red to deep purple; all the warm shades of fall and winter were shown.
Feminine tailored dresses, knitted cardigans and stunning suede pants stole the show. Layering, a trend that we’ve seen from Dante 6 before, seems to be making a comeback for the upcoming F/W season. Mixing and matching leather with silky blouses and comfortable knitwear will also still be in style. And we’ve already picked our must-have: a deliciously cute hat we’ll be fighting over come next winter.
As the evening came to an end, we found ourselves actually longing for summer to come and pass, and F/W ’13 to begin, that’s how beautiful this collection is. Make sure you mark your diary with a reminder to whip out your wallet the second this collection hits the stores. Believe us, you’ll want to. But for now, take a look at the mouthwatering photos from last night.
