Steenbergen explains that each garment in the collection is a concept in itself, a sensibility of an emotion.

 

他解释道,这一系列中的每件衣服自己本身就是一个概念,一种很感性的情感。

 

“I love the fact that my designs are able to provoke very strong emotions in people who wear them. And it actually doesn’t matter if these emotions are negative or positive — it’s often the controversy that matters. When my designs shake people up,bring exuberance in their lives, and don’t leave them indifferent, I feel like I’ve achieved something very important.” says designer in one of his interviews.

 

Steenbergen在一次访谈中说道:“我喜欢穿上我设计的服装之后的人能够被煽动出非常强烈的情感。无论是积极的还是消极的情绪那并不重要,那通常是这个事件的争论点。当我的设计震撼到了人们,给他们的生命带来了热情,不对他们无动于衷,我感觉我已经完成了非常重要的事情。”

Did he achieve this goal with his A/W 2011 collection?

 

在他的2011年秋冬系列中他有实现他的目标吗?

 

In my eyes, the style evolves into a refined pureness and female elegance. It’s very sensitive, calm and beautiful mix of modernity and a hint of some village spirit. That’s what I see looking at the editorial. Quite hypnotizing.

 

在我看来,风格逐渐发展为是优雅的清净和女性的高雅。非常敏感,平静和美丽混合了摩登和一些乡村的精神。这是我看到的这一系列的作品。就是这样的让人着迷。
