Walter Van Beirendonck is perhaps one of the most influential and breakthrough designers of our time, having mentored the famed Bernhard Wilhelm as well as being one of the Antwerp Six, Walter recently showcased the 2009 S/S ‘eXplicit‘ collection, a juxtaposition of the natural and the synthesized, drawing inspiration from the male body, muscles, and body parts. The fabrics, while looking synthetic and technical, are actually silk based fabrics. We also see some green beards on the models hung in a similar fashion to his own beard ( a real… non-green beard). Take a look at the iamges below.
