Fashion designers Niels Klavers and Astrid van Engelen graduated from the prestigious Gerrit Rietveld academy in Amsterdam. The work of Klavers van Engelen ranges from purely conceptual to highly wearable. With their work, Klavers and van Engelen search for new perspectives and try to mislead the eye.

Here in a showroom in Amsterdam they explain their new collection to fashion critic Milou van Rossum.

Klavers and van Engelen like to cross borders by working with theater and musicians. Here, for example, with the pianist Tomoko Mukaiyama, in the performance ‘Show me your second face’.

Since their first collaboration in the late nineties, and their reunion in 2007, both designers have shifted to more wearable designs. A general development which took place across Dutch fashion during the course of the past decade. A development which gained designers like KlaversVanEngelen an international podium.
