ARTtube had the privilige to be there and broadcast this exclusive event in livestream on ARTtube.nl. We also produce the aftermovie witch containes interviews with art collector Han Nefkens and designes Viktor&Rolf. You can watch the show online, live or afterwards:
The expressive landscapes of Vincent van Gogh provided the visual cues for giant 3D flowers and enormous straw hats in this collection: the Van Gogh Girls. After the show, art collector Han Nefkens acquired three of the pieces for the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in the Netherlands.
Their longstanding collaboration has led to the purchase or commissioning of pieces that are donated or given as a long-term loan to the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen as part of the Han Nefkens Fashion on the Edge project. Two collections by Viktor&Rolf: zen garden and red carpet, were on show in the exhibition 'The Future of Fashion is Now' at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, until Jan 18 2015. The exhibition was an initiative by Han Nefkens Fashion on the Edge.
