Holland’s premier haute couturier Ronald van der Kemp has aligned with Net-A-Porter to launch an online presence for the first time

The fashion industry is always reinventing itself but it'll be hard to top this novelty: The Net-A-Porter x RVDK/Ronald van der Kemp online launch that will see the Dutch designer's exquisite handcrafted creations made accessible to the public.

Formerly working only with small ateliers and artisans, van der Kemp has also had long-standing stints as creative consultant and designer for luxe labels such as Céline, Michael Kors and retail giant Barneys. However, his eponymous designs have always been vanishingly rare despite a global fan base that counts among its numbers Kate Moss, Lady Gaga and supermodel Doutzen Kroes.

But as of Paris Couture Week in 2015, van der Kemp has presented his collection for the first time to the world — an announcement the esteemed couturier is now developing his own label. The highly sought after demi-couture apparel that were once only available via private appointment is now accessible with a click of a button. Each piece is a one-of-a-kind limited edition, signed and labelled like a work of art — so best be sure to secure your picks before it's too late.
