Walter Van Beirendonck

A STUDY IN PERCEPTION
Paris: Directional designer Walter Van Beirendonck showed a collection chock-full of modern art history references, creating a light-hearted, off-kilter set of looks. The Belgian designer plays with perception through Post-Impressionist perspective prints of interiors (with parts of the planar surface literally jutting out of blazers), Cubist-inspired geometric prints jumbled on blazers and trousers, and a trompe l’oeil pocket watch print with a real chain attached. —Kathleen Tso
