Thursday June 25th at 2pm saw the Walter Van Bereindonck show hit the Bataclan in Paris’ trendy 11th district for Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2011. As our second season collaborating with Walter, this year’s collection is bigger, better and crazier… featuring the larger than life tiger and crocodile backpacks as big hits on the runway as well as the robot backpack. Further to these, the new Spring Summer 2011 collection includes the tiger and hope belt bags, the nylon W gym bag, the ‘Read my W skin’ side bag and leather belts, the W side bag and leather harnesses - available in a variety of checked fabrics too – the W laptop case, in a choice of leather, croc leather or nylon and a case for the ‘au courant’ Apple iPad in black leather or nylon. Lastly the not to be forgotten leather ‘W’ wash bag. The colour range this year is red, green, white and black with the additional checked range.
For you eager beavers we have decided to repeat last season’s successful 2 weeks pre-order option, available on our online shop from the next week and following this the collection will be stocked in the world’s most coveted couture boutiques and department stores from January 2011.
