Two Legged Creatures SS17 – MBFWA

Right before the start of the show, we both remembered the dark and gloomy ambiance created by slow fashion label Two legged Creatures during their last catwalk show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam in January. This year however, the collection felt like a sweet symphonic expression of serenity, beauty and fun. The two models opening the show started with a powerful stomp down the catwalk, only to abruptly drop their pace as to appear in slow motion, revealing to be professional modern dancers as their limbs floated through the air into the abstraction of time and space. Frantically starting Shazam on our phone, Baby Alpaca’s song “Sea of dreams” proved to be the perfect soundtrack to foster the dreamy ambiance. It’s time for euphoria: in slooow motion.


Created in 2015 by fashion designer Stefanie Klompenhouwer, Two Legged Creatures seeks to bridge the gap between culture and business life. Ideal for those who find themselves in a (corporate) business environment with formal standards, while their individual style is far from standard. The elegant designs are a loose interpretation of office wear, bringing style to a higher level.

Heavily inspired by classic ballerina’s and 90’s club culture, the models prance by in shiny satin bomber jackets, boxy t-shirts and sleek shirts in orange and blue, layered over flowing maxi skirts and sheer leotards in crème, light pink and baby blue. Special detail was given to the intrinsic hairstyles of the models, taking us back to those 90’s disco nights with their funky braids and knotted up do’s. All of these elements formed the perfect contrast between tradition and complete freedom.
