Walter Van Beirendock –
New Drops Of W:A.R.
A new shipment of Walter van Beirendonck items is hitting our stores at the same time as we are finalizing an interview with the designer. A good time to take a second look at his latest collection, and to shop before the good times have gone.
Walter Van Beirendonck mixes seriousness with humor, wild shapes with subtle details. His A/W 2020 collection offered a wide range of silhouettes, spiky, puffy, square, body hugging and oversized. In order to express his concerns regarding various human behaviors he chose to go loud: contrasting bright, shiny, colorful patterns and texts to state his messages: "Save Planet Earth" – "Demand Beauty" – "Stop Racism” – "Demand Freedom" – “Stop Violation of Privacy Now”, and other personal concerns most of us can relate to.
The new collection is Walter Beirendock at his best. After 20+ years of creating fashion love and chaos, birthing over 40 collections, he seems to be as full of urge and energy as ever. And with the public slowly coming around to acknowledge his importance in our visually focused world, the future might be bright after all.
"I am very happy that new young people continuously discover my designs, that my audience does not grow old with me. We have noticed a great interest from today's youth in vintage 90's W< collections."
