Walter Van Beirendonck – Autumn Winter 2012-2013
February 10, 2012 Leave a comment
Perhaps one of the most interesting collections of this Fashion Week season is the collection by the Belgian designer Walter Van Beirendonck. Beirendonck covered all of his models’ faces with masks in order to dehumanize his models, while toying with influences of S&M fetish culture. His trademark playful colors are juxtaposed with the stark creepiness and fear infused in his looks. Sometimes elegant, sometimes conservative, definitely scary, powerful, and sexual. Beirendonck’s collection is one that deserves and will garner a second look.
