Metro is the world’s largest free newspaper and the fourth biggest newspaper in the UK. Bel Jacobs style editor features the Autumn Winter collection of Walter Van Beirendonck+Chris&Tibor.
“Feeling bored of ordinary backpacks? Knock yourself out with those larger-than-life creations by mad Belgian Walter Van Beirendonck for accessories label CHRIS&TIBOR. Can’t decide between the Rocket backpack, the Fly beltbag and the Fire beltbag? We can’t help; we want all three. Next spring, things jump even further leftfield with huge tiger and crocodile-shaped packs you wear wrapped around your shoulders. All that without mentioning the robot-shaped pack. Stick your name on the waiting list.”
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.

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.
