Paris, France – In but her second showing on the official calendar, the Dutch womenswear designer Liselore Frowijn has decided to greatly evolve her style. This comes just in time a Spring/Summer 2017 season that will see the designer blossom and flourish far beyond her more humble start from six months ago. And for her the season will be a far more sophisticated one too for her clientele.
The new collection sees Liselore Frowijin open her show with a simple, sleeveless white dress in silk. The dress’s prints are in blue and serve as a harbinger to the multitude of prints that she would go on to unveil as the show progresses. The prints appear to be abstract at times. They first seem to be created as either random or accidental paint splatters. However then they later seem to come from a more deliberate effort that results from a brush’s stroke. She even involves the socks with her prints.
The shapes of the dresses tend to be long. However with their natural movement, they are not voluminous. Rather the designer has decided to be very conservative with that while proactively creating logical proportions. She also adds in elements such as shorts, belts and pants. This really serves to help make this small, but very appealing collection a well-rounded affair for the Spring/Summer 2017 season.
Once the show concluded, one had the distinct impression that Liselore Frowijn has found her footing in Paris. This collection is work that is imbued with freshness. And for that it has such an appealing air about it.
