Together with tennis champion and global brand ambassador of Evian, Maria Sharapova, Iris van Herpen created a dress for the Fashion Awards in collaboration with Evian.
The sustainable dress, named the “Mimesis,” is designed with fabric made from recycled Evian bottles and organic silk and features the three-dimensional look that van Herpen is known for.
The dress was designed through state-of-the-art laser-cut techniques, with hundreds of recycled fabric petals placed in a triangular and cross-sectional pattern. The layered pieces and soft blue color peeking through the dress are meant to mimic wave patterns and represent water.
"I was thinking of the journey of water more generally, about how it’s the ultimate source of inspiration in terms of recycling and design. It’s our liquid state, the clouds, rainfall, crystals, and the snow. It’s never old, only recycled, for thousands and thousands of years. It’s just a beautiful source of inspiration for an infinite circular system."
