About the designer

The brand Christian Wijnants represents the pinnacle of knitwear and colours. Because of his admiration for awe-inspiring designers Dries Van Noten and Martin Margiela, winning the Dries Van Noten Award for his graduation collection felt like a true steppingstone to Wijnants. His fascination with knitwear developed from his childhood where his mother taught him how to knit. Christian Wijnants is enamoured with the actual production process of creating knitwear and cares for the awareness of how a garment is made. Besides his expertise in transforming wool, the brand is also known for its offbeat colours and prints.

Collection spring/summer 2018

While we’d typically encourage you to stop and smell the roses, Christian Wijnants’ floral SS18 silhouettes have a traffic-stopping effect of their own. This season, the talented Belgian designer opted for Persian-inspired florals to embody his breezy collections. The show opened with effortless ensembles, constructed with layered scarf-inspired panels for easy-yet-aspirational power dressing. An oversized pastel blue coat was adorned with white and metallic organza accents, with a flowy light lilac top and contrasting emerald trousers adding to the ethereal feel of the look. Slowly but surely, a monochrome colour scheme started working its way into the pastel-hued silhouettes, adding a more minimal approach to the collections. An airy midi-dress, complete with matching overcoat, ruled the runway, while a knotted scarf accent tied in the waist. Punctuated by unexpected twists, the collection featured elements of surprise such as gingham-printed co-ordinates and a complete ton-sur-ton denim ensemble with frayed decorative seams that provided a brief intermission in the otherwise floral-covered field.
