G + N, made up of the duo Gerrit Uittenbogaard (1971, Groot-Ammers, NL) and Natasja Martens (1973, Breda, NL) started out in 1999. Uittenbogaard was studying fashion design at the Academy of Fine Arts Maastricht (Academie Beeldende Kunsten Maastricht) when he met Martens. Initially Martens was taking a course in film and photography but she soon switched to fashion design. After his graduation, Uittenbogaard went on to earn a master degree at the Fashion Institute Arnhem where he was among the first group to complete the newly set up training course. A group that would become known as the Dutch Wave, a generation that put Dutch fashion on the international map in one fell swoop. Martens designed the accessories for Uittenbogaards FIA final exam show. Since 2002, Uittenbogaard teaches fashion design at the Royal Academie of Fine Arts The Hague (Koninklijke Academie van Beeldende Kunsten Den Haag). G + N’s clothes are just as sharp and graphic as the plus symbol in their logo. Even though their clothes on occasions include strange physical elements and sometimes have an unnatural silhouette, they’re not alienating. The staccato play of lines and razor sharp folds, reminiscent of origami, could be an explanation for G + N’s popularity in Japan.
