Walter Van Beirendonck Fall 2019 Menswear Collection Review
Description
We were left speechless by Walter Van Beirendonck's Fall 2019 Menswear collection. Not because of splendid awe, but in horrific shock with what was really a travesty to avant-garde fashion. Not only were most of all incredibly juvenile, we even felt that we lost a few brain cells just by looking at the collection!

Oftentimes, we get the sense that Walter Van Beirendonck is just a crazy creative with a glue-gun who connects all sorts of items together to make, what he might refer to as “avant-garde” fashions. The truth of the matter is, there’s nothing fashionable nor avant-garde about many of his creations in his Fall 2019 Menswear line. It all looked as if Beirendonck just draped random stuff together in and around his studio and tried to pass them off as “fashion.” Unfortunately for him. the industry has become a lot smarter than that. If you truly want to see real avant-garde fashions, check out the creations of Rei Kawakubo and Martin Margiela. Walter Van Beirendonck is a whole different kind of designer altogether. Though there were some interesting pieces—some structured outerwear and “paint-dripped” suits—that might sell (emphasis on ‘might‘), they were completely drowned out by the unnecessary craziness of it all. These things (we’re even apprehensive to call them looks!) were nothing more than just arts and crafts from someone with too wild an imagination. And in this era of promoting sustainable fashions to help preserve and protect the environment, we found it incredibly tone-deaf on Beirendonck’s part that he wasted resources, materials, and everyone’s time with a completely ridiculous presentation!
