Walter Van Beirendonck: Fringed Fantasy

January 27th, 2011 by HFL Staff received Comments Off

Men in skirts have never looked more quietly chic. But this show was anything but QUIET!

Walter Van Beirendonck’s irresistible show opened with the sartorial sleekness of a slimly tailored suit, shirt, and tie, all in pale gray. The same outfit in dark gray closed the presentation, but by this time, it had grown a huge green coat swathed in thick fringe.

“Classic men’s fabrics clashed with fantasy things”-that was WVB’s own description of his collection. The collision of opposites produced progressively more colorful and extreme ideas and one creative collection.
