Long an underrated legend (especially in comparison to Antwerp Six counterparts like Ann Demeulemeester and Dries van Noten), Walter van Beirendonck is showing no signs of letting up, following up his recent collaboration with COMME des GARÇONS by taking to Paris Fashion Week Men’s to unveil his 2018 spring/summer looks. As whimsical and out-there as ever (this is the man who dressed the Edge up as a cowboy and created the iconic “Bono Man” look for U2’s infamous PopMart Tour, after all), van Beirendonck’s latest show started things off relatively tame — save for some colorful wigs — before quickly segueing into familiar territory.
