Antwerp, Belgium – Of all the collections presented during the Fall Winter 2016/17 edition of the St. Petersburg Fashion Week, this writer is convinced that the new collection by fashion house Weirdo must be considered as the most relevent. Why? Because it contains garments that people will actually wear. And quite easily so!
Though it appears that a variety of the now popular jumpsuits/garage suits dominate both the men and women’s line, there are only several of them and with only two or a maximum of three in each of the men’s and women’s collections. Weirdo quickly spices things up by detailing the collections with loops, belts and gloves. They can be found and worn in looks featuring oversized shirts, widely cut pants, branded t-shirts, etc. The large sweaters are done in chunky wools. Some feature exaggerated roll-up collars.
A part from the wool knits, we do find woven materials, leather, velvet and jersey.
