Milan, Italy – Dirk Bikkembergs’s fashion isn’t a good place for rules and principles. Rather the house makes its own rules while breaking those that it opposes. One of the Antwerp Six surprises again with still floats on the avant-garde’s wave. For Fall Winter 2015/16 the house reinterprets classic by putting it in the climbing alpine style.
The collection stays in raw, cold and heavy clime. The colors of the mountain landscape are perfectly melted to the hues pallet of the collection. Almost every single silhouette has the element referring to the necessary equipment’s alpine climber. The accessories are formed by the overhanging grouped rifles and fittings, while the belts and bags are replaced by the climbing ropes. The rock prints are ubiquitous on the t-shirts, sweaters and gaiters.
Despite the classic cuts, the men coats and leather jackets are enhanced by frames with extra buckles and pockets. The designer also modifies the smart dress code to leggings worn with sporty jacket and straps instead tie.
However, Bikkembergs proves that he is still on the fashion’s top.
