Martijn van Strien

Dutch textile artist Martijn van Strien is one to watch. He combines science and architecture with fashion, which results in amazing looking garments. A great example is his latest collection of coats for men where he "explores the possibilities of combining very durable but inexpensive materials with fast and effective ways of putting them together." Combining basic shapes with heavy and dramatic materials, he succeeds in creating a mysterious, cold and distant atmosphere. Check out more of his work on his website
