SiS collection by Spijkers en Spijkers Autumn/Winter 2011 Collection shown at Amsterdam International Fashion Week.
During the Amsterdam International Fashion Week presented by the designers Truus and Riet Spijkers the SIS collection for Autumn / Winter 2011/2012. The collection is entitled "Fast Ladies‘ and is the second collection of SIS by Spijkers en Spijkers.
Like the ‘Fast Ladies’ Spijkers en Spijkers find it important that women feel free to chase their dreams. Amelia Earhart, the first female aviatrix who flew alone across the Atlantic in 1932, was once the muse for the designer.
We saw some Fast Ladies on the runway at SIS by Spijkers en Spijkers. Wearing loose-fitting overalls with lammy collars, knitted dresses, leather jackets and loose pants the girls rocked the show, inspired by the first women in race sport and aviation.
Truus and Riet Spijkers always felt that women should feel free and live up to their dreams, so they chose Amelia Earhart the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean as the muse of this new collection.
The silhouettes were very tailored, yet everything looked very comfortable and elegant. The shades of black, true blue, dreamblue, grey blue, ochre, ecru and light taupe worked together beautifully. The brand new ‘cloud print’ the sisters designed in red and blue felt like a modern camouflage print and looked fresh.
