High fashion and couture are not normally paired with bellies and fur. Normally. However, Belgian fashion designer Walter Van Beirendonck sees a veritable canvas on the broad shoulders and fuzzy stomachs of the men intended to wear his 2010 Summer look. WVB's Summer 2010 Wonde® is all about branding. Beirendock has incorporated logos and trademarks from companies all over the world, using them as fashionable elements. This is some serious cut and sew, fellas. The looks are out there but somehow they just fit on the burly bodies that walked down the catwalk... or is it a bearwalk?
Beary Fashionable: Wonde® by Walter Van Beirendonck
I just love a man in a jumpsuit... unzipped like above. Furry belly a must.
WVB's sweatshirts are reminiscent of the cut-off gym muscle daddy look...
A bear sweats, especially a furry one. These "W" pole shirts are made with a meshed material for style and breathability.
I LOVE the bear claw sunglasses!
Grow your own fur? Where can I get some of that?
Here's the Android logo... OMG it has a penis... awesome.
Take me back to your cave sir....
Here's a video of KEES getting fitted for the show...
And here he is... WVB himself... What a daddy bear. I'm sure he had no trouble rustling up the bears to be in his show.
as promised, after the final walkout, more bears came down the line... just wearing a whole lot less. WVB's jock briefs are as beautiful as they are flattering.
WHOA... click on the photo below for a very large version.
