The Spring Summer 2015 collection entitled "O" is inspired by the miraculous power of water crystals to transform under the influence of the environment.
"Nothing is softer or more flexible than water, yet nothing can resist it" - Lao Tzu
Esther Dorhout Mees became fascinated by studies of the microscopic differences between water crystals that came from one source, with simple geometric shapes, versus water crystals which was meditated next, yielding complex mathematical shapes. The same matter is changed in essence.
The same applies to crystals of tears of happiness and sadness. If the intent is positive, you will see beautiful, balanced and crystal when the negative was created disjointed, almost broken shapes.
"All our thoughts actually affect the cells in your body. I thought it was something special that something that seems so elusive suddenly became visible to the naked eye. ", that is became the base of my collection says Esther.
The idea is reflected in the geometric shapes that suddenly change shape under the influence of the carrier. Trousers from two geometric pattern pieces with mirrored organic folds. Hard forms besides liquid lines. Prints with layered patterns, which on the body refer to organs. And asymmetrical geometric shapes in the shoes where a layer of water appears to be; wet versus dry from soft suede.
