Jivika Biervliet’s Experimental Menswear

Jivika Biervliet is a menswear designer based in Arnhem, The Netherlands, who founded her eponymous label in 2012. Her brand’s collections are comprised of clothing pieces that at once futuristic, minimal and conceptual.

For her sixth collection, titled ‘OHM’, the designer went back to her Indian roots to create a collection that interprets tradition into the modern and playful designs. In her conceptual lookbook, photographed by Kevin Daniel Croes, sleek silhouettes and simple pieces are adorned with jewellery pieces by Taiwanese designer Peter Hsieh, known for his uncommon facial ornaments. The designer says her passion for menswear stems from her impression that the discipline “has more rules.” Maybe that explains why,in her creative process, Biervliet is “searching for existing borders in order to exceed them.”
