Marlies Dekkers is proud to present a sneak peek and the inspiration for her Spring/Summer 2014 collection:
During my research for my fall/winter 2013 collection, The Mauritshuis, I became intrigued by world traveler Johan Maurits and his adventurous appetite to explore the unknown. In his role as a governor he often visited his beloved Brazil and was inspired by the local population, artifacts and wildlife. It became his mission to document all these unidentified exotics and share his findings with the world – a phenomenon known as Brasiliana. Through my designs I want to take you on a magical journey and let you experience these breathtaking discoveries. A fantasy I want to share; my spring/summer 2014 collection: Brasiliana.
