Designer: walter van beirendonckinspiration: in a garage in paris with strong, shifted men, based around the idea of a skeleton with as always, the punk mood which is so dear to the designer. collection: men with skeleton makeup which are found as drawings on the bodies. from the start of this collection, the designer plays with dismemberment: the jackets, coats and trousers are detachable and hang on by a system of straps. you can buy the whole outfit or buy it as detachable pieces to assemble your own design. naive motifs, such as a donkey or goose come from old images of the circus and are scattered on several pieces. florescent colours are dominant and reinforce the energy of the collection.to note: the many critical, humorous and offbeat patches and embroideries that are added to clothing.the shoes: kind of plastic-coated clogs with platforms. the painted faces and long feathers which hang from the ears interview:i think that it’s important to really make clothes for today, because i find that there are too many designers who are in the middle of making collections but which are all inspired by the seventies, the eighties, the nineties… and personally i find that we still have to make designs anyway and so i started to experiment with a certain frame and i really tried to make clothes with this way of thinking. i used yellow and orange and you can really buy the simple frame or you can make yourself a sort of collage, by buying a frame with clothing beneath. it’s one of the things that i really like and i really worked on this collection with an idea of tailoring, and of combining that with a sort of shift as well, to make clothes for today. music from the show (for use only in context of the show, under cover of the right to information)
