About the author
Hi! My Name is Annelijn. I’m a twenty year old fashion victim who loves writing, observing people, drinking liquorice tea and photography. My dream is living in a design tree house in the Vondelpark with a bubble bath and a big walk-in closet with spotlights for my shoes.

Pauline van Dongen made her entrance at Amsterdam International Fashion Week this season. Needles to say, a very impressing one! Pauline’s collection ‘Kinetic Landscapes’ consisted of dresses with graphic lines and unexpected shapes in a colour palette of orange, blue, grey and black.

For this collection Pauline was inspired by the powerful force of water and air that both can make big changes to different landscapes. I red on her website:’ I was struck by the seemingly unremarkable changes in nature which only become visible after many centuries and I wanted to recreate the lines and undulations that mark the deterioration of the earth’s surface.’ Cleary another example of a designer that loves intellectual explanations. However, I was blown away by the silhouettes of some of the dresses. Sculptural, but at the same time minimalistic and wearable. This is definitely not the last time we hear about Pauline van Dongen!
