Walter Van Bierendonck, F/W 2019 Bondage Jacket With Removable Fur Scarf
For years Walter has created subversive and individual garments, pushing ideas and setting the tone way ahead of his time, his imprint can be seen clearly in and around the industry. For his FW19 collection, the world of Van Bieredonck was very much alive through the clothes once again, with colour-patched tailoring, knits, semi-sheer dress, and cashmere coats. The eyes on the garments glared with the pops of colour to pull and distract the viewer away.
Here we have a wonderful piece seen on the runway in the blue variation, constructed out of a black soft melton wool fabric while featuring an oversized boxy fit. Details include an array of seatbelt like bondage straps attached across the front of the jacket, which can be used to hold in the detached faux fur scarf attachment. Two lower pockets are placed on the front and finally, the jacket is finished off with a button closure.
