Addy van den Krommenacker:
“With this pop-up I give attention to my ready-to-wear collection.”
For this floral collection Addy was inspired by the work of Leo Gestel (Dutch painter 1881-1941). After the minimalism illustration, a week ago, i sketched this romantic illustration. For the entire collection check the links below.
And i can tell his au de parfum ‘Red Carpet’ goes very well by his beautifull creations. A powerful bouquet of rose, mimosa sweet and intensely seductive ylang yang.
The Couture store and Ready-to-wear are both located in ‘s-Hertogenbosch and a showroom in Milano.
