PARIS, Jun 28, 2008 / FW/ — In the intimate showing of Jeroen Van Tuyl’s new collection the use of waist cinches and the modified trench stood out. Jeroen used modern, structured silhouettes but all with a sense of fluidity. His trench coats’ A-line form was lightly feminine, following this season’s trend of blurring gender lines in fashion.
The color palette was cool with mostly grey and black tones and the occasional pop of orange or copper sequins. He also used the new balloon pant silhouette paired with a modern, collarless jacket.
Inspired by the subtle Hindus reminiscence, the Dutch designer used sorbet shades of light pink, orange pink, light grey, then combined them with shiny fabrics such as oiled black , shiny browns and dark greys for an urban touch.
