This season Les Hommes is about a very personal and emotional collection. An intimate journey far closer to home, to their homeland Belgium and more specific, to their home-city of Antwerp. A collection full of references to their experiences. The creative duo categorized three pillars that identify their country and city. The national sport cycling, with cuts, shapes, patterns and colours of vintage cyclists knit.
The Academy OF Antwerp experience: constructing and deconstructing that leads to the creations of unique hybrids. Music, the techno scene of the ’90 that was very influential throughout Europe. All these iconic elements are infused in a collection that talks about “contemporary elegant ravers” with an “ACID” touch.
The gentleman’s tailored jacket meets the bomber jacket, creating a unique piece. Pinstripes and the structure of a kway, lined in silver. Intimate Techno Tailoring: design for techno music lovers. Oversized jackets and trench coats. Laid-back tailoring. Classic fabrics, such as mohair and cool wool, as well as nylon and plastic fibres.
Organza and leather made to look like crumpled paper in reflective gold. Acid magenta, acid yellow, acid green, shocking pink and International Klein Blue. All combined with the more traditional colours in tailoring: blue, navy and black. Laced Derby shoes with contrasting or discrete tone-on-tone rubber trim. The Dominator, the trainer. A must.
