Alexander van Slobbe is, together with Viktor & Rolf, internationally one of the leading Dutch fashion designers. In Japan he was an absolute star with his brand So, nowadays he is mainly focused at his label Orson + Bodil. Besides he designs , among other things, shoes and clothing for the German sports brand Puma. The Netherlands are still not really aware of the international class of Van Slobbe, while the appreciation abroad recently was confirmed by the cover of a fashion supplement of the most important newspaper of France Le Monde.
What is it that distinguishes Alexander van Slobbe from other designers? His minimalistic conceptual fashion is completely original, but it completely fits in the couture. He does not set out new lines continuously but works gradually, which makes his clothing timeless. Pieces of Van Slobbe of ten years ago can still easily be worn , also because of the high quality of the finishing.
The book gives an insight in the views and the techniques of the designer, his intriguing career and his efforts to improve the infra structure of the Dutch fashion. Indispensable for everyone who is interested in (Dutch) fashion.
