Text by Harriet Walker: “Freshly resurrected this season from the inner circle of hell: the bum bag: on the catwalks at Louis Vuitton, over the counter at American Apparel, and now king of weird Walter van Beirendonck has presented his own take on the style during Paris Menswear Week. Known for clashing colours, hyper-cool new fabrics and bold add-ons (he once attached a black leather dildo to the front of some bondage trousers, oo-er), Van Beirendonck has linked up with bag brand Chris&Tibor to make fanny-packs that spell out words, your initials, you name it… Or simply play it safe with one of the plane-shaped rucksacks instead.”

Chris&Tibor team just got back from Paris, where we were showing the Autumn Winter 2010-11 Collection to international buyers and press in the past few days. The presentation was really great, our showroom was located in the heart of Fashion Paris: The Marais. Literally next to the world famous Pompidou Center , Stravinsky Fountain and The Saint-Merri Church. We want to thank to everybody who have visited us…what a wonderful and successful week it was!
For the AW 2010-11 season, Walter Van Beirendonck has designed a collection of bags together with Chris&Tibor. The Walter Van Beirendonck + Chris&Tibor collection includes a large size rocket shape backpack, and a medium size messenger bag with laptop compartment and the signature 3D shape W letter on the front. In addition, there is several smaller belt bags made out of 3D letters, reading: Fly, Fire and W. Material variations: Waterproof Tetron fabric and a rich and smooth Italian cow leather. Colours: Black, Navy Blue, Khaki and Red.
We have also included some of our personal favorite moments from the show. Fantastic season, it is energizing, make you stop and think. We bet you cannot wait to to buy these amazing clothes and accessories.

We spotted uber cool Kanye West in Paris at the Walter Van Beirendonck catwalk show today. Kanye has arrived with girlfriend Amber Rose, American model, socialite and former exotic dancer. I have to say that Chris and Tibor loves the new Christian Louboutins studded Rollerball Loafers what Kanye West was wearing at the show. By the way, Christian Louboutins website is really really cool, so if you have not visited the site yet go and check it out, our favorite is this (turn on the speaker before you click): “Dont tell me the price, but how much is this?”
Last night we pop in to Walter Van Beirendonck’s Paris showroom for a meeting and to see the preparation for his catwalk show. The AW 2010-11 collection is really really good, we cannot wait to see it on the show. Spot some of the collaboration bags on the photos.
