Bas Kosters: anti this, anti that
February 7, 2011 Leave a comment
Bas Kosters is anti. He gives anti-parties, makes anti-fashion and gives anti-fashion shows. Hence the models weren’t tall, size 0, nor walking straight up on the catwalk. Instead the models were long, short, skinny and sizeable. The movement of the models was also more akin to dancing on the catwalk, as opposed to pounding down it.
This was an Amsterdam fashion week showing that kicked off with an image of Bas himself that transformed from weird haircuts to animals and, a sign of the times, a creature from Avatar. With the music kicking off, courtesy of well-known Dutch DJ Joost van Bellen, the models came out with the colourful clothing and animal masks that drove home the message that this was a fall 2011 showing that was more like a big party than a fashion show.
