|PARIS, Jan 9, 2006 (Updated Jun 27, 2009)/ FW/ — A graduate of the Arnhem Institute for the Arts in 1998, Jeroen Van Tuyl’s signature style of architectural silhouettes emphasizing angles, pointed shapes and figures have caught the eyes of the press in buyers since he launched his eponymous label in January 2000.
Young as he is, this is actually his second label, the first one being ‘VanTUYL DeROOIJ’ created in collaboration Edwin de Rooij right after their graduation from design school.
The duo produced two collections: the first women’s collection ‘New Entity Chique 2000’ for Spring / Summer 2000 was shown in Paris at Espace Austerlitz.
Trying his hand on menswear precipitated the launch of the Jeroen Van Tuyl label, a mix of classical basics in natural fabrics and high-tech textures with late teens and early 30s as the target market.
Marked with a very modern outlook for men’s dressing, Van Tuyl’s collections have always leaned towards an architectural approach on the man’s body, as seen in the Spring 2005 collection, ‘Robiator’ and Fall 2005’s ‘Robotica.’
During off-season for fashion, Van Tuyl participates in exposition and exhibits all throughout Europe.
In September 2002, he was involved in the exposition Mode à suivre 2 at Musée de la mode et du costume; Palais Galliera Paris and on November of the same year, he previewed his collection at the Gwand- Award for up-coming design contest in Lucerne, Switzerland, the Fall 2003 body of work named, ‘Swordsman V1.2.’
In 2005 Jeroen Van Tuyl also took part in two majors Dutch events « The Dutch Touch », which was shown in Paris and New York from May to September 2005. His creations were also shown at and the « Arnhem Mode Biennale » in June of the same year.
Based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, Jeroen Van Tuyl trained under Dirk Bikkembergs, Joe Casely – Hayford and So by Alexander van Slobbe and at the Saga International design center in Vedbaek in Denmark and had practical work experience at the labels, Dirk Bikkembergs, Joe Casely – Hayford and So by Alexander van Slobbe.
