Designer of the day: Walter Van Beirendonck [Part 2]

Fashion is the evoking of a fantasy. Whether the fantasy is negative or positive it should still be present. 

Designers like Galliano, Browne, Beirendonck, Lagerfeld etc. are masters at eliciting certain fantasies. For example: Beirendoncks “oversized forms made out of tufts” creates this child-like, candy craving, fantasty that is quite effective when paired with the 1950’s theme.

Bravo, Beirendonck! Bravo!

Designer of the day: Walter Van Beirendonck

I blogged Belgian designer, Walter Van Beirendoncks S/S 2012 collection previously, so I resurfaced his designs to reiterate my “softer side of summer thoughts. 

I think the angelic simplicity of soft pastels are essential this season. The colors in Beirendonck Collection [below] are crisp and soft on the eyes. I believe every gentlemen should exude effortless style and Beirendonck accomplished just that with the grace of his 1950’s ensembles. 

[P.S. Walter Van Beirendonck is my new favorite designer.]
