Boaz van Doornik - Amsterdam Fashion Week

Boaz van Doornik presented his new men’s collection LEAF, during his debut at the 27th edition of the Mercedes-Benz FashionWeek Amsterdam. The inspiration for LEAF is in line with his award-winning graduate collection ‘Monumental Memories’, which was all about his father, the nature and beautiful childhood memories.

The basis of the LEAF collection was inspired by a few dried oak leaves that Van Doornik found at home, crushed between the pages of a book.
He told Fashionweek.nl: “I do remember placing them in the book, but I totally forgot about them. When I found them, it was like finding a treasure! It was winter and there were no leaves on the ground anywhere. I loved the old leaves, weathered by the ravages of time.”
Finding these leaves took him back to his childhood and the amount of leaves he used to pick up during the forest walks he made with his father. Especially the ‘propellers’, that every kid loved to play with, revived Van Doorniks fascination for shapes and structures of leaves and seeds.
