Dutch designer Iris van Herpen, endlessly innovative and inspiring, just debuted her Spring 2018 Couture collection entitled ‘Ludi Naturae’, and now we all want to clothe ourselves in finned, leafy, scaled, and flowing dresses, gowns, and jumpsuits that look like living biotech sculptures from a futuristic utopian fever dream.

With ‘Ludi Naturae’, Iris van Herpen examines the natural and manmade landscapes of our world from a bird’s-eye view, tracing the laws of entropy.

“I zoomed out to look at the earth’s skin, trying to find the forces behind the forms. Looking from this perspective, I felt inspired by the patterns of chaos and order, nature and civilization blending into infinite hybrids.”
