On April 30, after the Inauguration of King Willem-Alexander the royal family took place in a water pageant where they watched among others the fashion show of Jan Taminiau.
The Dutch designer presented his Poetic Clash Fall Winter 2012 couture collection and as a grand finale a “King’s Couple’ wearing pieces of the “Postbag Collection”.
The Postbag jacket was especially made in a male version with the Dutch flag as well as a female edition with the colors of the Argentinian flag.
In 2009 Queen Máxima opened the Arnhem Fashion Biënnale in a total look of Jan’s Postbag collection. The postbag represents a strong symbolic and romantic value for the designer.
“A postbag has history, it is been used from tax letters to love letters and that’s why I love it, it has a story to tell.”
The limited edition is handmade in the Netherlands.
