Walter Van Beirendonck FW 2017

 Walter Van Beirendonck presented his FW 2017 colletion 'ZWART' at Paris Fashion Week. On the first sight the collections stands out with the cartoonesque big hands, taking the extreme long sleeves trend to another dimension by adding oversized gloves to the sleeves.
The show featured a performance by Seida Pass, a drumming group of dressed-up in folk costumes from the Austrian region of Tyrol. Since 1999 they've been perpetuating a local tradition called Percht, a procession that takes place in the winter, and whose aim is to chase away evil winter ghosts.Inspired by shamanism, Walter Van Beirendonck names the collection Zwart, which is Dutch for black. This collection expresses the reflection on the current state of the world, but as always with a playful and positive twist that is significant for the designer.
