The collection: ‘Narcissus so himself, himself ‘ by Victor Wang
Every year the Antwerp Fashion Academy’s show is an opportunity to discover a new emerging designer who we know will make moves in the industry. When we tell you that we know, we know.
Victor Wang’s elegant collection was based on the myth of Narcissus. As the 28-year-old Antwerp-based designer carried on developing his collection he got inspired by a ’70s movie called Pink Narcissus and the dark romanticism of painter Francis Bacon. That is exactly what we felt on Wang’s runway. He sent an army of Victor Wang boys dressed in standout and refined, tailored pieces, a lace catsuit, showy hats and more. We heard his embroideries were done at the same atelier as Chanel.
