Jantine van Peski was a totally new acquaintance to me, most likely because she just graduated from the Antwerp Fashion Academy with her charming “WIRES 10.0” collection. The pieces she has created are like wearable textile sculptures combining woven knits with transparent fabric and delicately cut wool. Van Peski has gained experience with houses like A.F. Vandevorst and Haider Ackermann before launching her own collection. I fell instantly in love with her work. The skilfully cut and bewitching silhouettes were minimalistic and full of details at the same time. I think that in their outstanding beauty the clothes would also proof to be practical and warm.
Filles à Papa “Daddy’s Girls” was another designer new to me that I found very interesting. Since 2008 these Belgian sisters have created their casual yet glam clothing and accessories. The new collection combines metallic leggings and grey t-shirts with knits, sequins and a rebel attitude. I have to say that these two girls are really rocking the world of leggings!
