“WHAMBAM' - Walter van Beirendonck SS2015
One of the shows that I always look forward to is Walter van Beirendonck, and in the case of the ss collection he presented this week in Paris it was a pleasure to see it from few steps away.
With his work he takes you to another world, he plays with codes and cuts in fashion with humor and at the same time addresses heavy issues. As much as he is part of the industry he remains one of a kind.
All combined is exactly what it should be; fun relevant and in case of this collection also very beautiful.
His Spring Summer 2015 collection, entitled 'Whambam' was inspired by the lack of privacy we are having in this fast-moving society and the contradiction between paradise and the dark side of the world. The collection featured stunning brocade jacquard jackets and bright colors which gave it an overall rich, exotic and fresh feel.
For this collection he cooperated with many creatives, paintings are by Scooter LaForge, headpieces are designed by Jacques Blankwater, Charlie le Mindu was responsible for hair and so on.
