i've never really understood beirendonck. like what sets him apart from other designers that make frute stuff? why is he so famous? is it because he luckily graduated at a certain time to b part of the antwerp six?

yeah, but is he really like THAT GOOD to teach at one of the best schools (i think)? i'll be the first to admit i know nothing about construction and stuff, so he very well might be. i just get the impression that its like apprentice > master concept when it comes to this stuff

Well, if you ever see some of the Beirendonck stuff in person, you'll notice that despite how outrageous and costume-y some of it is, it's ridiculously well-made. Even the tees have some really high quality construction and printing. If anything, he's the originator of frute swagz and people respect how long he's been doing this and how he's managed to keep doing exactly what he wants to do. Even if it's not very sellable (although it does still sell), people enjoy seeing his stuff in person and trying it on because it's so ridiculously fun.

They flew in "bears" from all over the world for the show. The dudes were funny, smiling and walking like real human beings not models. Show was the shit. Walter is relevant because he basically invented frute swagz and is cleverly inserting self-referential comments, making his work a WvB a narrative as much as a bunch of clothes. Guy Bourdin and Helmut Newton really drove the "narrative" aspect of fashion photography but not that many people manage to insert that stuff in collections, which is why Antwerp 6 are teh sex0r. And he makes christmas red/green sweaters of himself with his dick hanging out in atari graphics; what's not to love!!??

i've always enjoyed WvB's women's lines much more, my ex girlfriend use to wear a lot, and they really look great on slim women.

that being said, i hate when designers such as adam kimmel and van beirendonck for example, use "real" men for their runway shows or photoshoots, since it then becomes really hard to imagine how it will fit on you (assuming most people who wear these clothes are skinny), especially when looking at frute swag clothes...

there is a reason why you never see any "real" women showcasing any luxury brands (not made for fat ppl)
