On February 5, Dutch designer Mattijs van Bergen, closed Amsterdam Fashion week with a show at the Heineken Music Hall.
He is named as “one of the most promising young designers” (British Vogue), and “Crown prince of Dutch Fashion” (Dutch Elle). He showed two collections that emphasized quality tailoring and detailing, one of which was designed in collaboration with clothing brand Aaiko.
The footwear for the show was especially designed by United Nude in collaboration with Mattijs. An exclusive limited edition of these Mattijs x United Nude shoes will be available from United Nude in spring 2012.
Rem D Koolhaas, Creative Director United Nude, said: “Mattijs and United Nude have been talking about collaborating for a while and now was the right time. Even though this is already our third collaboration with a Dutch designer this year, we went for it. Joining forces in the creative field is part of the United Nude spirit and we are proud to be perhaps one of the most collaborative brands in the industry.”
