Yona van Mansfeld: “My collection ‘Elusive Clashing’ is based on contrasting elements: color contrasts and a clash between modern and ornamented fashion. This summer I was in Berlin, where I saw a neo-Rococo wall covered with a modern glass-metal construction. It was fascinating how the two elements really worked together. After Berlin I went to an exhibition by the artist Krijn de Koning in Amsterdam, who works with bright colors in modern constructions and puts them in a classical environment.”
