Since his early collections, Walter has been inspired for his designs by art, music and literature, all mixed with ethnic and nature influences. Walter Van Beirendonck is considered to be one of the main trend-setters in men’s fashion by the professional press. His designs are very recognizable by either strong graphics or innovating cuts and unexpected color combinations. The red thread throughout his collections is his sense of humor, sex with an eye-wink and his concern about ‘safe sex’. His continuous statements about the fashion-world,earth,nature, contemporary life and society are collected in prints and slogans. Often ‘double bottomed’! Always in a complete unconventional context. Since 1983 every collection carries a well-defined name.
