IN ONE WORD: INSPIRATIONAL

December 22, 2011 | Chris&Tibor @ 6:52 pm

We were visiting Walter in Antwerp to working on the new leather bags for the upcoming Paris Fashion Week. It was a fun road trip, driving through Belgium we’ve spotted Brussels’ Christmas market, the Atomium and even a chocolate Manneken Pis. Very Christmassy indeed!

However, the highlight of the trip was definitely Walter Van Beirendonck’s retrospective exhibition at the MoMu Museum. It is a highly recommended and inspirational show to visit, the exhibition gives you a rare and deep insight into Walter’s world, his colourful career and inspirations. One of the room includes the exact reconstruction of his workspace. Do you need more reason to visit Antwerp? Start packing!!!

Walter Van Beirendonck: Dream the world awake exhibition runs until 19 February 2012
For more information visit the MoMu Museum’s website.

Handmade bag

October 12, 2011 | Chris&Tibor @ 4:07 pm

Now that the weather is turning cold and wet in London, it feels especially nice to remember the warm days we spent in Spain this summer. After a breathtakingly long, narrow and dangerous mountain drive, we arrived to a relaxed, pretty village where we had a quick look at our AW 11-12 production. It was interesting to witness the process of the highest craftsmanship what involves with our handmade production.

December 13, 2010 | Chris&Tibor @ 1:01 pm

Back in September (when we could still feel our toes) the Chris&Tibor team embarked upon a trip to Shanghai and Hangzhou to take part in the British Council’s Smart Talks and exhibition. Smart Talk is the British Council’s programme of cultural events for Shanghai Expo, featuring innovative and inspiring speakers from the UK, introduce British innovations to Asia, allowing the audience a unique insight into the UK education, life and culture.

Always happy to spend time in the East we were glad to receive the invitation, following in the likes of Sir Richard Branson (Virgin Airways), Jimmy Choo (Jimmy Choo shoes) and Sir David Tang (Shanghai Tang).

Check out the photos here, we were exhibiting a selection of bags from the Walter Van Beirendonck collaboration project and Chris Liu womenswear. Brilliant event from the British Council and most importantly: hurrah for British Fashion!

Grabbing on to the tail end of London’s dwindling Summer we packed ourselves and set-up camp at the beautiful Hampstead Heath to shoot our new campaign. Not only did we have the brilliant Kai Z Feng onboard for the second time but also help from hairstylist Chi Wong, stylist Rachel Bakewell and young new talent in the shape of our models Johann and Paddy (Select Models), Lynn Amelie Rage (PMA Models). To capture the day we made a short documentary, giving a better insight into the team behind the shoot.

Big thank you for the lovely and amazing Disneyrollergirl for the interview!
