Christian Wijnants Resort 2015

The designer looked to the Indonesian sea gypsy tribes that live in harmony with the ocean, creating their homes and clothes with found materials.

For his first pre-collection, Christian Wijnants looked to the Indonesian sea gypsy tribes that live in harmony with the ocean, creating their homes and clothes with found materials. They inspired an abstract collage print that Wijnants featured on a silky dress. That same fabric was also shredded into ribbons and knit together for cardigans and sweaters.


Knitwear is a Wijnants specialty (he won the International Woolmark prize in 2013), and here he worked it in myriad ways — dyed with a Shibori technique, in kaleidoscopes of nautical stripes and textured jacquard flowers. Elsewhere, iridescent laminated leather was used for biker jackets and simple short dresses and tops done in blue, turquoise and green shades meant to reflect the changing and shimmering sea.
