Wearing Your Heart on Your Sleeve: Walter Van Beirendonck’s Colorful and Activist Designs

Walter Van Beirendonck has always incorporated activism in his creations, advocating for gay rights and/or safe sex. His collections are recognizable for their extravagant patterns, bold color combinations and unique sense of humour.

One of our favourites creations are his socks: bright, joyful and queer. Just about everything we love!

Walter made his first breakthrough in London in 1987 and has produced collections since 1983. In addition to his designer work, he is also Head of the Fashion Department at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp, where he teaches creativity to young aspiring designers.
