Polder | April Showers | SS12

The label polder was created by two sisters, Madelon Lanteri-Laura and Natalie Vodegel | Madelon and Natalie were born and grew up in the Netherlands | They spent their childhood living in an area where forested hills overlooked polders that stretched out as far as the eye could see | At the age of 19, Madelon went to study in Paris where she was joined by Natalie a few years later | In Paris, they both studied archeology and art history at Paris University and at the Ecole du Louvre | Madelon and Natalie then both started working with fashion designers including Anne Marie Beretta, Marcel Marongiu and Hermès | Polder was created in 2000 and the debut collection was presented in January 2001 at the trade show “Première Classe” in Paris | Since then, the handbag collection has been complemented by a line of jewellery, handmade knitwear, shoes, clothing and socks | In January 2008, they presented their first kid’s accessories collection “April showers by polder” at the Playtime fair in Paris | From the very beginning, hand made components, which bring a unique and handcrafted quality to the collection, have been highly significant in polder’s creations | Shapes are extremely pure, the work is focused on the research for prints and materials, colours and finish aim at creating a visually strong and acknowledgeable product | The collections are a mix of a Nordic spirit, with a French touch of vintage | Their SS12 April Showers collection is full of delicacy and poetry | A Nordic spirit is mixed with a vintage touch’ to create timeless collections | www.polder.fr
