Magical shoot Couture in Bloom published by Vogue
So thrilled to get our remarkable shoot published at Vogue. Our patience was challenged to share this beautiful work. We want to thank everyone who made this shoot so magical!
Couture in Bloom
In the enchanting Amstel hotel, located on the nostalgic quays of the eponymous river in Amsterdam, the scent of fresh flowers can be found all year round. It inspired couturier Karin Rom and floral designers Dennis Kneepkens and Mick Stubbe to create a dreamy shoot. Starring: couture and flowers.
Known as the residence of royal guests and stars like Audrey Hepburn and The Rolling Stones, the iconic Amstel Hotel is no stranger to special fashion moments. A source of inspiration for couturier Karin Rom, who appeals to a new generation with her fashion forward designs. As a tribute to the Amstel Hotel, in this shoot the designer gave special roles to sparkling and feather-light couture gowns. The grand residence in harmony with romantic and elegant silhouettes.
Opulence in bloom
A special lead role in the shoot was reserved for flowers. Floral designers Dennis Kneepkens and Mick Stubbe found inspiration looking at the catwalks and campaigns of renowned fashion houses. In line with their international portfolio, the duo opted for large-scale flower decorations. Paying homage to the character of the building, they created lush, natural pieces in a tone-on-tone colour scheme. Using fresh and dried flowers combined, the designers created an interesting juxtaposition with a play on dark and light.
A floral dream
For just a moment, life is all about architecture, flowers and fashion. Surrounded by floral scents, we wander through dreamy halls. The Amstel as the decor of fine fabrics from Tel Aviv and fragrant roses from Colombia. An oasis in bloom, filled from front to back with all varieties of flowers imaginable. Wíth a view on the Amsterdam canals.
