Afternoon of a Replicant
Fashion designer Liselore Frowijn has won the Prix Chloé at Hyères International Festival de la Mode 2014 with her design for Chloé, where she was one of the ten finalists.
Last year Liselore graduated cum laude from the ArtEZ Institute of the Arts in Arnhem in Fashion Design with her collection ‘Afternoon of a Replicant’. This is inspired by the cut-outs of Matisse. She created a modern suit in the same bright colours and shapes as the ones Matisse used, but made from fabrics used in sportswear, such as lycra.
Additionally, she designed pieces based on the military dress code, carried out in light, rich, artisanal fabrics. Most of these fabrics are handpainted or embroidered. A weird kind of luxury is the result. With this collection, Liselore has won the Frans Molenaar Couture Award 2013.
Her latest collection of is called ‘Fracture Space’. Its silhouette is based on biking-jackets and polo-shirts, made from tweed and finished with sporty pipings. Liselore developed her own handpainted fabrics and combined them with materials from the outdoor industry, together with rich jacquards from Italy.
