Jan Taminau’s collection provides much needed shimmer to brighten up this Winter. Modernist headpieces sported along with nude trains and sequinned minidresses, gave the runway a 60’s spacewear edge.
A metallic palette, exaggerated shoulders and plunging necklines are in line with many of the collections exhibited at Paris couture week. However, Taminiau makes his mark with tight waistlines, light colours and swathes of sequin and sparkle.
The Dutch atelier is well loved by HRH Princess Maxima of the Netherlands and looks set to become another firm favourite of high society this Winter.
The Netherlands, informally Holland, is a country primarily located in Western Europe and partly in the Caribbean, forming the largest constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. In Europe, it consists of 12 provinces that border Germany to the east, Belgium to the south, and the North Sea to the northwest, with maritime borders in the North Sea with those countries and the United Kingdom. In the Caribbean, it consists of three special municipalities: the islands of Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba. The country’s official language is Dutch, with West Frisian as a secondary official language in the province of Friesland, and English and Papiamentu as secondary official languages in the Caribbean Netherlands. Dutch Low Saxon and Limburgish are recognised regional languages (spoken in the east and southeast respectively), while Sinte Romani and Yiddish are recognised non-territorial languages.
Paris, France‘s capital, is a major European city and a global center for art, fashion, gastronomy and culture. Its 19th-century cityscape is crisscrossed by wide boulevards and the River Seine.
