For the truly fashionable: three decades of the Belgian fashion avant-garde

Surreal, avant-garde and explicit are three keywords that are commonly associated with Belgian fashion. This exhibition catalogue gives a unique historic overview of Belgian fashion, starting with the legendary Antwerp Six--including Dries van Noten, Walter Van Beirendonck and Ann Demeulemeester--and leading up to the individualistic creations of Martin Margiela, A.F. Vandevorst and Raf Simons. The catalogue also highlights the work of several influential players in various fashion and art disciplines. Additionally, it touches upon the importance of the fashion academies, especially the Antwerp Academy and La Cambre in Brussels, and documents emerging talent such as Jean-Paul Lespagnard and Christian Wijnants.

The Belgians: An Unexpected Fashion Story

The Belgians: An Unexpected Fashion Story

This week's coolest new release may be The Belgians: An Unexpected Fashion Story, published by Hatje Cantz just in time for New York Fashion Week. In her essay on the school of "grandfather of the avant-garde" Martin Margiela, Anne-Françoise Moyson writes, "With Margiela, everything was the subject of an experiment: the clothes, the fashion show, the invitations, the refusal to give face-to-face interviews unless they were in writing, or by mail and in capitals. But nothing was ever conceptual at Maison Martin Margiela; the word was anathema. The only and absolute requirement was that fashion should be approached as an applied art." Featured image is from Margiela's Fall/Winter 1996-97 campaign. continue to blog
