Introduction to m p h v s,
promising new brand that will debut at Berlin Fashion Week January 23.
m p h v s is a label by designer Martijn van Strien who graduated from Design Academy Eindhoven in 2012.
His two graduation projects at DAE, Threads for Cockaigne and Dystopian Brutalist Outerwear, received wide international praise and recognition. Both collections arose from imaginative worlds and abstract concepts. The first found inspiration in craftsmanship from the past, Medieval tales in particular. While the second explored future and ‘sustainable’ adaptations of textile design. For this he was awarded a prestigious ‘Keep an Eye’ grant during the Dutch Design Week, to continue designing and experimenting with various materials.
His interest in future-focused and sustainable fashion, brought him to Antwerp, where he assisted fashion designer Bruno Pieters at Honest By. Besides exploring material sourcing, his work included all the Honest by graphic design, website, publicity and organising a book project.
