PRINT IN MOTION
A printed fashion story
We are entering a period of outspokenness after a long period of wearing black.
Let your body and personality speak. Motion is emotion.
Color is light and prints are your story.
These prints make the spectator dizzy and disordered.
Theatrical effects are overwhelming.
We are seduced by the playful movement of dancing colors and lines.
The collection exists out of catsuits with a superimposed transparent garment.
The prints of both layers create an optical illusion when lines cross and colors blend in transparency.
COLLECTION TEENY TINY
As puppeteers of the next century, Anouk and Vera believe in growing ingredients solely when they are needed. Dancing fingerstamps, boiling blue color baths and wobbly ingredients are representations of a colourful world that doesn't necessarily bears a relationship to a current reality, but aims to shake it up by diving into a chaos of possibilities and surreal sceneries. They stretch your fit with a fingertip, change the materiality of a product by simply cooking it and smart inks fuse with the textile in a preprogrammed pattern.
These futuristic sportswear lovers prove that on-demand production can be colourful and fun, silly but serious, and that radical changes can start with a teeny tiny first step.
Travel through distorted time frames in graphic landscapes.
When we move, we blend or stand out. As small bodies in space, we hide and seek, merge or emerge.
The suits are AnoukxVera's first full body garments, which are executed in two versions; the color block suits and the gradient suits.
Both play with silhouette and contrast; whereas the colorblock suits have been designed to partly camouflage the wearer in a multicolor landscape, the gradient suits redefine the wearers silhouette. The suits fits like a second skin, which enables the print's deforming and alienating effect.
The suits were originally designed for the Food Experience during Dutch Design Week 2017 (Eindhoven, The Netherlands).
This was a collaborative event with the Creative Food Studio, for which AnoukxVera also functioned as creative directors and concept developers.
The suits, worn by the restaurant workers, transformed accordingly with each food course, representing it's graphic language and colorpalet.
ANOUKXVERA X HUTSPOT
AnoukxVera has teamed up with Hutspot to create a limited edition sportswear outfit.
In a world where disciplines overlap and where work and free time
have almost become one, it is sometimes difficult to find your path.
The AXV x Hutspot design guides you with poetic and humorous symbols the way through the always moving landscape.

Can you fake it until you make it? Intrigued by this idea, Olivier van Gaalen,
Georg Gross and Niklas Worisch invented ‘Snaggin’ – a ficticious sport based on children’s catch ball toys.
As self-professed pros, they started living the lifestyle and uploading the evidence online.
The idea caught on, reaching a wide audience through social media.
Maximising on this interest,
the designers proceeded to build a brand around it, complete with sportswear in collaboration with Anouk van de Sande.
Soon the lines between fiction and reality began to fade,
both for them and their ever-growing group of followers.
