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.

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.

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?”
