PFW: Walter Van Beirendonck Spring/Summer 2017 Collection

Walter Van Beirendonck brings us a collection based on the famous childhood story, Alice In Wonderland.

_LUC0602“Why is a raven like a writing desk?” the Mad Hatter proposes. Van Beirendonck based his theme around what is known as the story’s unanswerable question. This collection plays on our eyes as much as the question plays on our minds. Van Beirendonk has showcased his skills for garment manipulation where we find pieces with holes cut out and ribbon streams hanging, in some cases creating abstract faces.

The patterns, colours and fastenings are nothing short of mad, but what the audience may miss are the dark undertones of the collection. Phrases such as ‘Brutal Beauty’ and ‘Reflection Through Destruction’, to name a couple, are found printd on the clothes.
