DE PORCELEYNE FLES
"Royal Delft still makes their porcelain by hand and when I saw the Master painters at work in the atelier of the museum, I knew I wanted to collaborate with them." – Tess van Zalinge
January 2017 Tess van Zalinge launched her new collection during Amsterdam Fashion Week in collaboration with Royal Delft.
The new collection is a clash between functionality and sensuality, featuring oversized suits and lingerie. A haze of ‘Delfts Blue’ runs through the collection. Thanks to the unique collaboration, between Tess and Royal Delft, prints were created honouring Dutch master painters like Johannes Vermeer. Dutch craftsmanship is one of the keystones in this collection. “I was inspired by traditional zootsuits and reformed them into female silhouettes. My signature stands for breaking with status quo in lingerie without loosing its fundamentals; sensuality and functionality.”
Icon photographer Paul Bellaart shot the campaign image for the collection. Catwalk photography by Team Peter Stigter.
