Bruno Pieters was born as Bruno Peters in Brügge in 1977 and graduated from the Antwerp Royal Academy in 1999. After working at the fashion houses of Martin Margiela and Christian Lacroix, Pieters was announced art director of Hugo Boss in 2008. When his contract ended he decided to take a one-year sabbatical in South India, a break that profoundly affected his personal philosophy and his thinking about fashion. With his label Honest by, he opts for a new honest approach. From pricing to fabrics, from production to sales – a total transparency comes in place. The idiosyncratic Diane Pernet meets her match in Bruno Pieters—a contemporary and idol. Directed by Katharina Kowalewski, the film follows the pair through their natural habitats as they discuss what it takes to have a revolutionary approach to fashion. Get to know Honest by here.
