A/W 2011

For the Capriole vollection, Van Herpen worked with the architect Isaie Bloch and MGX in making 3D prints, which were then mixed with fabric materials to create these incredibly distinctive designs, which seem to revel in the glorious symmetry of the organic, technological and elemental.

The matching curved heels took shape with computer aided design and were then by way of rapid prototyping printed in 3D and laminated with carbon fiber for strength. The upper material for the shoes, also used in some of Van Herpen’s dresses, was exclusively developed by Bart Hess.
