We are very happy that Katleen Derijcke, one of our guides at MoMu was featured in DS Magazine, weekend supplement of the Belgian newspaper De Standaard. Katleen was part of a series on people that always wear black.
Katleen Derijcke: ‘Some time ago I combined black with dark blue. I picked this up from the Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto when he visited Antwerp for his ‘Dreamshop’ exhibition at MoMu, when he was wearing a dark blue coat and black pants. So I bought a dark blue gilet and sweater. But after that I put them in the washing machine with black paint. I actually always have a box of black textile paint in my house. I just love to wear black: it’s timeless. Ans since I started wearing black I also wear out my clothing.’
