In an ongoing series ‘My Favourite Things’ we ask MoMu staff members to choose their favourite object from the current exhibition.

Isabelle Swengue, cleaning lady at the MoMu: Jacket in wool with decorative metal chains, sweater with turtle neck in tricot in wool, bustier in knitting and crochet, and skirt made of panels in machine lace and tulle with a lower layer of satin and wool by Veronique Branquinho, F/W 2006-2007.

‘I chose this silhouette by Veronique Branquinho because I think the cut is wonderful. The jacket is so neat and beautifully cut. The patterns are behind the jacket, the museum also has the patterns in collection. I also like the skirt with the lace and differently textured materials mixed together. I don’t like bold colors and love the different shades of black in this silhouette. In general, I like Belgian fashion because the style is realistic and beautiful for everyone, not only for tall, thin women.
