My secret lover is never too late: PEET DULLAERT’s FW2015
As the final echoes from Europe’s best fashion weeks dissipated and the glorifying digital post-waste accumulated, Dutch fashion designer PEET DULLAERT finally appeared. As one would expect, however, he did it in his own unique and inimitable style… Rather than working within the confines of any official fall-winter 2015 calendar, DULLAERT opted for autonomous detachment. He arrived online and suddenly the suspense of his runway absence bloomed into a beautiful and spontaneous romance!
His fourth collection appeared online and was immediately followed by verbal flirting on Instagram – each time a new look was published, followers commented and declared their love in this most secret of affairs… We were all wounded by Cupid’s golden arrows and filled with uncontrollable desire for his new vision. It’s right there on the Techno-Plissé that we feel the concubinage between the wearer and the garment. This piece invokes an emotional attraction– it is a piece that must be loved. And the mirrored belt-buckle trimmed with fabric – an abstract fleur-de-lis – is more than just the continuing presence of heraldry in everyday life– it speaks of women’s desire for quality and design!
A PURE CONVERSATION ON AESTHETICS.
This collection stands as being more than a fleeting love affair, however. As has been seen in his previous collections, this active designer has repeatedly delivered comfort and style while retaining his personal aesthetic. Way before Milan was declaring them as the “ultimate suit pant” (see his SS2015 loose cropped pants here), DULLAERT was already moving in his own direction. Now we see it taken to a new level with an invigorating creativity and individualism that fashion is starting to love!
