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 autumn/winter 2017

Imaginary narratives of Persian getaways were the inspiration of Wijnants’ fall/winter 2017 collection. Known for his striking use of colour, Wijnants created many-hued silhouettes in graphic flower- and paisley prints. Mastering the art of layering, he daftly combined skirts and dresses with trousers in mixed fabrics and jacquard prints. A flower print velvet top was paired with a lamé pleated skirt and sky-blue Lurex cropped trousers. The eclectically-styled silhouettes were alternated by lighter looks featuring a stone washed baggy jean and Wijnants' signature knitwear. Highlights of the collection were the lilac and rust-hued shearling coats. Wijnants believes in the value of not following trends but just doing your own thing as a designer, and this was precisely what he was aiming at once more with this collection.
