With the special minds, aesthetics and masterful techniques, the young talents of Antwerp this year brought their spectacular collections to portrait their egos to the world. I would like to pick some pieces that i like most from show 2013 graduate.
Collection: Liquidation Totale
The collection was completely divine! It remained me the spring summer 2007 collection of Balenciaga by Nicolas Ghesquiere. Pierre's futurism was completed by not only his own vision of outta space warrior but also the immaculatly tricky details which only made by the experienced hands. The fabric choices and combinations brought the feeling of softness and hardness, liquid and solid. No surprised that this collection won a lot of awards. I'd like to see more from him in the future cause if not, that would be a waste of talent.
Collection: Hi, kifak, ca va?
Collection: Rhinestone Cowboy
