Ilja Visser presented the new collection "INGENIUM existere" in the garden of the residence of the Ambassador of the Netherlands during Fashion Week Haute Couture. For Autumn-Winter 2015/2016 collection, ILJA operated geometric shapes, which reflect our reality assemblies.

The term "Ingenium" means "engineering" while "existere" means "existing" or "existence." All forms are based on the same volumes, configurations and logical, and remind the skeleton clothing. The elements through which ILJA chose to express the vision of Couture, are a mix of old techniques, poetic silhouettes and a casual attitude similar to that of the hometown Amsterdam. The silhouettes of the collection "Ingenium Existere" are carved in panels of neat fabric, transformed into feminine and poetic volumes with an attitude both edgy and strong. The materials are both carved, heavy and sleek and dynamic, transparent and enchanting. The denim combinations are known here carved in a duchesse satin, hexagonal pockets in satin sharp, thick stitches and "vibrant" decorated with copper cubes, a symphony of light jacquards, edgy volumes created in cotton sateen mineral blue. The chameleon range is revealed through azure shades, pink quarters, black onyx, copper and chromium.

For this Fall-Winter 2015/2016 collection, ILJA was inspired by both denim looks of the 90s with oversize jackets, cargo pants and baggy overalls, in contrast to the New Look silhouette Christian Dior, presented in 1947: a revolution in the world of Couture. With cuts and neat shapes, the collection - echoing the film Metropolis - is a nod to the future.
