Walter van Beirendonck has been at the forefront of fashion for more than thirty years. One of the 'Antwerp Six' and the director of fashion at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, he is known for the uninhibited nature of his work and the wonderful daring that he shows as a designer. This lavishly illustrated volume, which features three interchangeable covers, accompanies an exhibition of the same name at Antwerp's Fashion Museum. With beautiful photography by Anton Corbijn, Nick Knight, Jurgen Teller and David Bailey, the volume showcases the full range of Van Beirendonck's oeuvre, from his Sado collection in 1982 and the outfits he designed for U2's Popmart tour in 1997, to his Hand on Heart collection of Autumn 2011. The book gives exciting and captivating form to the complexity and multilayered quality of Van Beirendonck's work, and reveals his wide range of inspirations, which include technology, art, pop culture and ethnography. With texts by famous authors from the fashion scene, such as Tim Blanks, Hettie Judah, Cornelia Lauf, Robyn Healy, Valerie Steele and Kaat Debo, and a foreword by Christian Lacroix.
