Wim Bruynooghe: Reconstructing the artist-muse dynamic in fashion.
In another instalment of our collaboration, Sleek takes us on the road to meet six of the most exciting young graduate designers working to redefine fashion today. From anarchy in Amsterdam and despair in Belgium’s artiest city, all the way to headwear that defies description in London’s East End, here is the new breed of creatives imagining what fashion fans will be wearing tomorrow. Read about part one of this trip here. Visitors to Wim Bruynooghe’s flat in central Antwerp would be forgiven for thinking he might be living with his grandmother. That’s a compliment – everything here looks ancient, thought-out and cute.
Black and white portraits surrounded by ornate golden frames hang above antique furniture, and here and there we find tiny little treasures, like a beaded handbag from the 1920s.
