iris van herpen Twenty-eight-year-old Iris van Herpen takes craftsmanship to another level. Her innovative silhouettes, experimental in form and function, represent the digit al revolution—the transition from the world before. The making of her leather dresses, knotted by hand, is particularly labour-intensive and she has introduced ornamentation created using a 3D printer. Her sculptures are the result of a timeconsuming practice, of continually reflecting on what has been and, more importantly, on what is yet to come.
