Das Leben am Haverkamp

Das Leben am Haverkamp

On the last day of the Amsterdam Fashion Week a time slot was reserved for upcoming Dutch fashion talent. The so called Future Generation program presented 7 designers. A pleasant surprise at the exhibition space for us was GEFELICIFASHION, a celebration of conventions by Das Leben am Haverkamp, a collective of 4 fashion designers (Anouk van Klaveren, Christa van der Meer, Dewi Bekker and Gino Anthonisse) based in The Hague, The Netherlands.

Next to their collective work as Das Leben am Haverkamp, the four members of this group all have their own label as well. Since DLaH is also about collaboration we’d like to mention some Dutch photographers they chose to work with; Henri Verhoef, Imke Ligthart, Rik Versteeg and Lisandro Suriel, we feel their input reinforces the (fashion) vision of DLaH, good choice! We also love the fact that DLaH has a broader vision on fashion, reaching beyond clothes. It’s nice that they don’t over-stuff garments with ideas and visions; they have installations, performances and other means to do that. On the personal side; we, at Mimi Berlin, just like the aesthetics Das Leben am Haverkamp bring on.

“About (short version) The collective Das Leben am Haverkamp is formed by four young fashion designers – Anouk van Klaveren, Christa van der Meer, Dewi Bekker and Gino Anthonisse. All the members have their individual label, and present it collectively. Together they create the novel context necessary for their unrestricted way of working and thinking. ” (Read more  About (long version) HERE)
