Tess van Zalinge launches the couture collection ‘natuurlijk’ in collaboration with the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) as part of the official schedule of Amsterdam Art Week 2022. Accompanied by a string quartet, among Rembrandt paintings, Tess van Zalinge presents the debut of the collection in the heart of Amsterdam followed by a presentation at the iconic Palazzo Francesco Turati during Salone del Mobile in Milan. ‘natuurlijk’ represents the paradoxical feeling of being part of the always recognizable, sustainable and authentic nature, but at the same time becoming aware of the manufacturability, the changes and the vulnerability of that same nature.
