// SAY NO TO UNCOOL WOOL //

Trying too hard is not part of Diesel's DNA. With the festive season upon us, it might be tempting to pile it up, disappear under ugly wool sweaters and 'make some statements' about the long and dreary Winter, but that's not what the Italian brand's new collection is about. Imagined for boys and girls, its PRE Spring Summer 2018 collection is full of instantly hot and desirable items, which save us from Holiday Hell. Now, that is something BTB fans will surely want to relate to… Diesel fights uncool wool with the help of a sheep! So watch out, Ugly Wool Sweater lovers: this Winter, sheep will be dressed cooler than those who wear their wool.
 
Discover Diesel’s collection in store in Antwerp and Brussels and enjoy a joint offer from 15th December until 22nd December. Both Diesel stores offer a Christmas photo wall to print your own Christmas cards*.

// TWISTED //

Graduating from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Wujic Jo paid tribute to his childhood hero Mr. Bean. The collection depicts 12 suits that would have been made by the funny English man himself. Every piece is particularly worked upon with details that are totally in sync with the character of Mr Bean.

After asking the young Korean designer some questions, we understand the way the collection has been constructed, and we love it even more.

 

Your strength: I’m a good storyteller and I’m very imaginative

Your weakness: My stubbornness, as well as my unbalanced work- and lifestyle

Your colour: Navy

Your smell: Taylor of Bond Street Cologne during the day, and Proraso aftershave during the night

Your inspiration: My childhood

Your sound: I just love the sound of people’s shoes when they walk outside

Your destination: Home, I would like this to be my final destination personally as well as work wise

Your wildest dream: I don’t dream, I’m a realistic kind of guy

Your worst nightmare: I wasn’t ready for my jury so I had to present my work with very little preparation. So I guess I already experienced it

Your goal: I want to become creative director of my all time favourite brand, it’s a secret right now, but I’m confident I will be able to tell you soon ;)

// THANKFUL //

As he was finishing his fourth year at La Cambre, Cyril Bourez created a collection around iconic pieces we all know and love. The collection is called “Merci Beaucoup” and honours some of the designs that made him want to go into fashion in the first place. His figures are refreshing, yet very respectful of the original compositions.

We asked him a few questions and got a glimpse of this young designer’s insight.

 

Your strength: Being optimistic

Your weakness: I need comfort

Your colour: Blue

Your smell: Sea salt on skin

Your inspiration: A film character, a vintage piece, a detail on my boyfriend's pants

Your sound: Chet Baker's voice

Your destination: Cornwall, the two of us for a few days, soon I hope

Your wildest dream: A two-months holiday

Your worst nightmare: Losing sense of sight

Your goal: Finding the right job, the right place, to feel artistically complete, building something, keeping everything simple

// SIGN YOUR NAME //

J.W. Anderson X UNIQLO is one of the most expected collaborations hitting their stores this autumn.

We caught up with the London-based designer to find out more about the line.

 

PP: Have you been a UNIQLO fan for years? What attracts you about their clothing and concept?

JWA: Uniqlo is truly my uniform! The clothes are simple and essential yet universal.

PP: When did you first evoke a possible collaboration together? And how long did it take to make it happen?

JWA: Everything started over a year ago, both teams bonded right away and here we are.

PP: One of your desires within the line was to democratize your work in order to reach a wider audience.

JWA: I wanted to re-propose the timeless British Classics – a duffel coat, aran and fairisle knits, a mackintosh coat, striped scarves, checked shirts and other staples. Every single detail mattered, so it was me trying on a lot of clothing to check it. I’m really looking forward to seeing how people wear the collection.

PP: What are your favourite pieces within the collection?

JWA: A few seasons ago, we tried to create a puffer jacket, but we didn’t have the knowledge or the technology that Uniqlo has - so of all the things that was the mission! I wanted a tartan printed puffer that I could wear.

PP: Would you do such collaborations with other brands in the future?

JWA: Sure, this is not my first actually, I did two for TopShop before.
