Different every season and always with an avant-garde touch. Yes, you gotta love Belgian fashion! Dries Van Noten just being Dries Van Noten, Haider Ackermann’s perfection, the ever mysterious Martin Margiela, Kris Van Assche’s own + Dior Homme madness… Belgium was once again taking over Paris Fashion Week. Excuse me, but we’re not ‘les petits Belges’ anymore!

Anthony Vaccarello’s ‘American dream’, Dries Van Noten just being Dries Van Noten, Haider Ackermann’s perfect drapings, the ever mysterious Martin Margiela, Raf Simons’ Dior madness… Belgium took over Paris Fashion Week once again. I’ve always been a fan of Belgian fashion. It has that avant-garde touch I like a lot. The Antwerp Six were setting the trend in the Eighties, but now new Belgian designers got good critics, the future is looking brighter than ever. No, we’re not ‘les petits Belges’ anymore!

After attending several shows in Milan during men’s Fashion Week and following London Collections and Paris Fashion Week on NowFashion.com and Style.com, I’m looking forward to Spring Summer 2015. And this are the 5 biggest trends:

WHITE

White is by far the biggest color statement next Summer season. From suits and parkas to slouchy trousers… all look better in white, or so it seems.

John Varvatos Spring Summer 2015

Louis Vuitton Spring Summer 2015

Neutrality

Au revoir, bright colors! The Spring Summer 2015 collections have a more neutral color palette, featuring mints, blushes, beiges, greiges and khakis.

Dries Van Noten Spring Summer 2015

Maison Martin Margiela Spring Summer 2015

Patterned

Patterns are totally back: polka dots, vertical stripes, zig zags… . Wear them head-to-toe, like in a suit, or don’t be afraid to mix them either.

Gucci Spring Summer 2015

Kenzo Spring Summer 2015

3D

This is not a major trend, but mark my words… it will be in the future. New forms of embellishment and old live together with cut outs, passementerie, embossing and quilting.

Dolce & Gabbana Spring Summer 2015

Ermenegildo Zegna Spring Summer 2015

Bombing

Nothing new here. The bomber jacket has been back for a couple of seasons now. But next Spring Summer, this trend will be in full force.

Anthony Vaccarello’s rising star, Dries Van Noten just being Dries Van Noten, Haider Ackermann’s perfection, the ever mysterious Martin Margiela, Raf Simons’ Dior era, the upcoming Véronique Leroy… Belgium took over Paris Fashion Week. You can say that I’m proud to be a Belgian. I’ve always been a fan of Belgian fashion. It’s different every season and has an avant-garde touch. The Antwerp Six were setting the trend in the Eighties, but now new Belgian designers got good critics and Dior is in safe Belgian hands, the future is looking brighter than ever. No, we’re not ‘les petits Belges’ anymore!

Paris Fashion Week is all about French fashion, but since we Belgians don’t have our own Fashion Week, Belgium is omni-présent in Paris. Ann Demeulemeester’s black and white madness, Anthony Vaccarello’s rising star, Dries Van Noten just being Dries Van Noten, Haider Ackermann’s perfection, the ever mysterious Martin Margiela, Raf Simons’ Dior mania… . Yes, Belgian fashion – well-known for it’s avant-garde touch – is on a roll. Small country, great talent. And I’m proud… proud to be a Belgian!
