The collection seems to be inspired by the film “Murder on the Orient Express” which it was inspired by Agatha Christie novel of the same name.

As the book a murder mystery suspense story, the journey to Istanbul and London references to the relations between Occident and Orient at the time.

Franzel Amsterdam is an experimental street wear label based in Amsterdam
, as you would

guess from their name and don’t be fooled by the experimental definition. Eric Franzel is the designer and the AW15 collection is a reconstruction, reconfiguration, re-worked or repurpose of other garments into something new. You would notice I did not use recycle as one of the verbs to describe this collection, because this goes beyond that.

Eric has totally evolved beyond the experimental stage and has shown us that you can create fashion from any garment.

The collection is an assortment of fabrics from tents, carpets, kakis, curtains and other garments used to create something unique in the street wear look.

Play design: Self-actualization and self-restrain.


In the fast-paced modern city, there is a continuing desire to find oneself, not just as independent beings, but also as one united consciousness.    The collection seems to play a role in making us appreciate the business of our daily days and while appreciating each single moment.


‘Play Design’ elaborates on question such as Self-actualisation and self- restraint which can be both Subtle and Bold when expressed.   the collection hopes to incorporate the different aspects of design reflecting the many choices women face nowadays.

The main fabrics used for this collection were Cashmere and Leather.  The color palette for this collection was a mixture of Cherry Red and Peacock Blue.
