Last Thursday, the highly-anticipated centre for Fashion And Design – MAD – finally opened its recycled doors. A white pearl at the heart of Brussels, which will aim to support and nourish independent creation in the city. As the opening happened around the corner and across the road from the shops, it was the perfect occasion for STIJL to celebrate a few artists themselves.

Menswear designer Walter Van Beirendonck never shies away from the unexpected. This season, he decided to collaborate with artist Jacqueline Lecarme to create a series of statement necklaces. Fascinated by feminine accessories, Jacqueline transforms buttons, combs and broches into colourful animal sculptures. Her art pieces look like fairy-tale creatures that could have crawled right out of your grandmother’s dressing table. For Walter’s menswear collection she twisted the process, and used animal shapes to create bold and brightly-coloured jewellery. Through her work, Jacqueline seeks to enchant and “wake up the child that slumbers in each of us,” which makes her a perfect match for the Antwerp designer known for his playful and fantasy-rich approach to design.

A few hundred metres down the street, designer Gioia Seghers received carte blanche to create a window installation for STIJL women. With the help of graphic designer Adrien Domken, she created a white box out of white paper garlands, reminiscent of the white ribbons used in her latest collection. The Molenbeek-based designer stayed true to her signature of pure lines and perpetual mutation: “I wanted to use these long lines to create a movement in the space, placing them in a symmetrical order at the top, but keeping them loose at the bottom so they’d float around.”

Discover the artists’ work until 04/05 at STIJL.
