Walter Van Beirendonck: Men's show Autumn/Winter 2018/19 (with interview)

Designer : Walter Van BeirendonckInspiration: Fetishism reinterpreted according to the designer’s own visions, always with colour and humour. Collection: mischievous, colourful, sexual. A covered mask with small ears on the parkers, and holes at the mouth and chest… a striking start. The idea is to see these overcoats take on a new cubist form, creating points at the shoulders. Materials such as linen and cotton are always very worked, taking on a plastic aspect. The prints full of symbols come to look like tattoos. The scarves becomes puffers. The fine checked suits are worn with his yellow parka. To note: The worked looks, with fishnets on the head, extravagant sunglasses but also fishing boots, plastic gloves, chokers and bracelets with straps and chains… Interview with Walter Van Beirendonck:For me it’s really an allusion to SM (sadomasochism)… sun and the moon, and that’s slightly the idea behind the collection, to work around a fetish energy and do it in a different way, not clichéd with the ingredients that we see everywhere, everywhere when in fashion we work on fetishism and I really tried to introduce new things. I really wanted to work on very current clothes, very today, with another cut and very different graphics like the clothes we find today, that we find now a little bit in all of the collections, which are really inspired by vintage or the eighties and nineties. The idea was to work on a cube shape and I started with this idea last season and I started to experiment with that and with everything in the collection I really worked on those shapes.Music from the show
