About Mattijs van Bergen:
Mattijs van Bergen (1980) lauched his label in 2008. His neo classical designs are defined by distinct use of color, high quality fabric and make. The clothes should be forward, but survive the change of the seasons. Curvaceous tailoring and a sculptural use of pleating are part of the label’s signature cut. His new glam handwriting has proven itself as highly attractive to women in the past years. The look is fresh, festive and feminine.“One of the most promising young designers” (British Vogue), “Crown prince of Dutch Fashion”, “King of Pleats”(Dutch Elle). These are but a few of the superlatives that have been used in the past year to qualify Mattijs van Bergen. With his designs, the designer strives to create feminine clothes that’ll seduce the women who wear them as well as surprise them by the highly innovative aspects. Great craftsmanship lies deep in the heart of MATTIJS. No wonder, with an education that started at the Institute of Fine Arts in Arnhem, The Netherlands and successfully ended in London at the Central Saint Martins College, van Bergen has an eye for details, beautiful fabrics and well-cut clothes.
