I was invited to design a look based on a part of the new LIDL collection, designed by Heidi Klum. The trenchcoat from the collection was the inspiration I was given. I dove into the history of the trenchcoat and was fascinated by the waterproof quality of the very first trenchcoats. Both of the coats (front and back) are made of waterproof fabrics I developed in the process using latex. “A rubber coat is not for a lady” I read during my research, which made me even more convinced of using rubber for the coats.
The show was held during Amsterdam Fashion Week in September 2018.
