CHARLIER CEDRIC


Cédric Charlier, this Belgian designer who graduated from the School of Visual Arts in Brussels, is now distinguished by simple yet sophisticated creations, punctuating the catwalks with a singular style, sleek and stylish urban clothes.
After going through Celine, Michael Kors or Lanvin, he launched his brand and his first collection in February 2012.
A glance at his Pre Fall 2015 collection unveils finest materials, raw cut fringes, woven stripes. Pajama for the day, fluidity, fluid dresses, all these elements let us dive into a false nonchalant mood and controlled style.

NEW COMERS: ETIENNE DEROEUX


Fresh out of school, Etienne gets an internship at a big fashion house to test the industry waters, then goes off to Australia to work and save up enough money to pay for a good school, tries and manages to get in to the Antwerp school, and dives in head first. 






Then, he’s spent two years at La Cambre before creating his eponymous brand in 2011. Following his taste for American-style modernism, he designs practical clothes and sportswear transposed into the universe of French know-how with great attention to detail. The perfect pocket in the perfect spot instead of decadent volumes or ephemeral eccentricity, lots of ideas in mind and passion in the guts.

NEW COMERS: SUPER PIECEOFCHIC

Founded in 2010 by Barbara and Sébastien, PIECEOFCHIC was a Belgian studio specialised in crazy prints. At first they worked with different brands and in 2011 they launched thei own collection of limited edition dresses. Their reputation grew, and in 2013 they created SUPER PIECEOFCHIC, a fun and luxury label. 





Amongst their inspirations are comics, travelling, humour and Belgian fries. These elements are at the heart of their bold and humorous collections, featuring ultra creative prints and some crazy pieces like the "fries bag" or the "hot-dog bag". The title of their SS15 collection "SUCK MY CREAM" spells it out: here is a brand that does not follow fashion diktats and could not care less about convention.
