Christian started in 2003 with his own fashionlabel, 10 years later he won the International Woolmark Prize and now last week I was in his new store to admire the interior design and his fall- winter collection at the Steenhouwersvest.
In collaboration with Swedish architect Andreas Bozarth Fornell, who also designs the ACNE stores, he created this beautiful place. The interior is finished with a green garden with mirrors, thanks to Antwerp garden designers. His collection is a mix match of different kind of fabrics, styles and techniques.
You can tell he understand women their taste, and to be honest I complimented him for that!
It’s beautiful to see that a male designer fully understands what women like to wear and can create a whole collection around that.
I was pretty impressed by the clothes, especially because every item is perfectly wearable, so if I make my stylist wish list there will be definetly an item of Sir Wijnants.
Meeting him personal was a great moment, he is such a genuine person who shows a lot of interest in other people. So we find out he also love to customize clothes, who know what will happen in the future with his new collections or projects?
For those who are interested, it’s totally worth your time to visit the store. For those who won’t find a spot in their agenda… In October they will be launching a webshop!
