Belgian born designer Beirendonck has been at the fore-front of avant-garde fashion design for almost three decades now, and shows no sign of slowing down! His contemporary designs are heavily inspired by art, film, music and pop culture, which he fuses with ethnic and nature influences, to create exciting and playful collections.

I'll be the first to admit, a lot of his work is BIZARRE, but there's no getting away from the fact that it's undoubtedly FUN. Along with the aesthetic of his work, I love his tendency to work against the 'fashion grain', for example choosing middle-aged, hairy men to model his SS 10 collection. 

I'm also a HUGE fan of OTT accessories, and Beirendonck never fails to deliver. So far models have worn everything from gargantuan ear-muffs and top hats, right down to 3D rocket shaped padded necklaces. 

His previous collections had an urban/ethnic mix of styles, fusing day glow colours with tribal print.

Beirendonck's SS 2012 collection see's the designer take on a more formal style, with pastel suits for men and floral dresses for women. Obviously, with the Beirendonck signature stamp!

Visit his site to view more of his insane collections, guaranteed you've never seen anything like it!
