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.
