Fashion Week: Antwerp Avantgarde

Rebirth of minimalism and deconstruction.

The omnipresent return of the 90s and 00s has not only triggered arrays of mini skirts, rhinestones and baguette bags. Along a more conceptual wave, designers have explored the archives of 90s minimalism and Antwerp Avantgarde as well. In a time of change, the deconstructive approach of several designers appears to draw reference to the current re-building of normality. Braking elements down to their core and reworking them into something utterly new. The look is rather experimental and edgy, yet elements of layering and tromp l’oeil effects are transferable into standout commercial pieces as well.
