According to designer Ronald Van Der Kamp, the eccentricity of Amsterdam’s new wave of style is rooted in their culture. “The Dutch are very opinionated,” he says. While the designer didn’t present a physical show at Amsterdam Fashion Week, his couture collection, shown in July 2022 in Paris, embodied the weird girl look: a bow here, a miniskirt made of three different fabrics there, a golden sleeve attached. to a black dress, a model wearing geometric shapes with jeans… If you didn’t know it was a fashion show in Paris, you might think the looks were pulled from the closets of TikTok maximalists like SaraCampz or myramagdalen. Additionally, each outfit was constructed from mismatched fabrics, leftovers, and pieces from the previous season—adding to the mismatched Weird Girl aesthetic in which sourcing second-hand or vintage pieces it is common. “For me, it’s about eccentricity. If people know who they are, they become a more stable person because they build a wardrobe around their personality,” he recently told Vogue.
