In the Vogue Paris promotional video, van Herpen said, "In the clothes there are wireless censors... by touching the clothes there is a wireless connection, a radio frequency... so every sound that you hear is coming from touch."
About her collection, she said, "There's a lot of blacks, there is some gray, some silver, some luminous shadows. I think that's the color palette."
The Twitter-sphere picked up on the trends van Herpen was laying down:
