Christian Wijnants is one of my favorite designers for reasons beyond his inspiring, whimsical design aesthetic (S/S 2010 is loosely, owl-themed! And you know how I love them hooters.)
A. He’s Dutch. And yes, I have a predilection for Dutch design.
B. He simultaneously creates artful, breathtaking dresses and teaches at the Royal Academy in Antwerp. I like people who can pat their heads and rub their stomachs at the same time.
C. He’s got Dries Van Noten in his rolodex as a “former employer”.
D. One of the dresses is appropriately named “Dalmation Dog Dress”.
Anyway, his S/S 10 collection–which I meant to blog about last fall–is really getting me in the mood for some summer sashaying. Now I just have to figure out where to get cute sized 4.5 heels to sashay in.
