Summer 1986Cour Carrée du Louvre
Asymmetry breaks the rules for white and striped shirts. Being oversized, they wrap, tie together, and sculpt a body with broken-offset lines. An exercise of style that generously embraces two cultures.

Summer 1987Cour Carrée du Louvre
Interpreted with juvenile freshness, romanticism under Renaissance influence creates an uproar with bloomers and pointed flats. More feminine, fragile gracefulness, flows over draped busts, releasing a breeze of chiffon and revealing glints of uncovered skin.

Niels Klavers
Photography J. Robaard
Fashion has gone to such extremes at the end of the millennium that designing something truly shocking practically requires an electrical socket and a bucket of water. In all the hoopla, the three-armed jacket stands out as the biggest fashion joke of them all, the most obvious example of the lengths to which some designers will go to make us sit up and take notice. Dutch designer Niels Klavers has created a jacket with multiple sleeves—his had four. He has also made three-legged pants, a four-armed sweater, and a coatdress colonised front and back by two identical coatdresses. And Klavers has done these things in all sincerity, with a straight face. “I do this work very seriously,” he says. “I don’t laugh about it. I’m not making fun with it.”
