Compared to the structured sculpture-like creations from previous collections, Iris Van Herpen SS16 was refreshingly accessible, on the verge of wearable, writes Ada Källgren.

On our minds is another Paris Fashion Week standout: 3D-printing darling Iris Van Herpen, who this season rightly flaunted her laser cutting skills once more. Compared to the structured sculpture-like creations from previous collections, SS16 was refreshingly accessible, on the verge of wearable. This time, the garments had a nice sensual flow to them with a contrasting white/black/grey/metallic colour scheme adding to the effect. We love to see the normally not so novelty-friendly Paris embracing this boundary-pushing designer and look forward to track her progress. See the collection in full here.
