Painted Secret is a series of delicate, fully fashioned knitted camisoles and 'shifts' in silk/cashmere yarn, worn as a secret to the skin. The pieces stem from the same pattern, machine-knitted in different colour variations.
They have evolved into unique pieces, by the addition of Bulgarian handlace and woven clothing elements.
The various hands and the machine complement each other in this work.

Painted Secret is a brief window of time where Painted will be ‘live’ at Droog,
Staalstraat 7b in Amsterdam: from Wednesday February 1st until Sunday February 5th 2012, during Droog
store opening hours ( daily 11:00-18:00, Sunday 12:00-17:00 )
During this time, Painted Secret can be tried, bought and ordered and Painted will work on the spot.

Painted Secret is a short film, a video clip of the band Toversex (Erzsi Pennings and Pieter Wackers) starring Natascha Dejong (SYTYCD) dancing Painted Secret to life.

The premiere of this film will be at the opening of WinterSALON/ on January 21st, 14:00 in Droog, and will be on show until February 5th.

The knitwear was commissioned for the collection and developed with Audax Textiles Museum Tilburg/Textilelab.

Led by Dutch designers Saskia van Drimmelen and Margreet Sweerts, Painted Series is a collective that blurs the lines between fashion and performance, and expands the idea of what a garment can be.
