Fast ladies at Spijkers en Spijkers

Twin sisters Spijkers en Spijkers showed an exciting and fast collection during the Thursday evening at Amsterdam International Fashion Week. The duo showed their second SIS by Spijkers en Spijkers collection, called Fast Ladies.

The blonde sisters were inspired by ladies in the twenties who’d like to take risks, like women in racecars and in airplanes. One of the major sources of inspiration was Aurelia Earhart, the first women who flew over the Atlantic back in 1932.
