We are ending our birthday countdown on a musical note (and with extra-long-party-pants) from Martin Margiela’s S/S 2007 collection. On Sunday 27th of August, everyone gets free entrance to the museum, and all our 15-year-old visitors will receive an extra special treat! Tomorrow is also the final day to visit our two exhibitions: ‘Margiela, the Hermès Years’ and ‘Nicole & Hugo. Swinging Ann Salens’. Hip Hip Hooray!

The back of this brocade jacket from Walter Van Beirendonck’s S/S 2015 collection, entitled ‘Whambam’, shows his use of the catwalk as a platform for strong statements on modern-day society. This collection was inspired by the lack of privacy in our fast-moving world with prints that referred to two entirely different worlds: a dark world and paradise. On the back of this jacket, Big Brother’s all-seeing CCTV surveillance eye is combined with the nature and wildlife of Papua New Guinea, a tropical island that has been a longtime fascination of Van Beirendonck.

3 days and counting… Rik Wouters made several portraits of his beloved wife Nel in her famous red-striped dress. During the Rik Wouters & The Private Utopia exhibition, MoMu collaborated with La Maison Victor on a DIY Nel dress designed by Christian Wijnants. The soft, restrained nature of Wijnants’ collections is imbued with an artistic aesthetic. Wijnants’ designs are both comfortable and sophisticated and combine hand crafted techniques with high-tech materials and processes.

In addition to a diverse collection of contemporary Belgian fashion, MoMu also houses an extensive collection of historical clothing. A beautiful example is this 1760s robe à l’anglaise in chintz, a hand-painted cotton fabric that was imported from India and that, in the 18th century, became immensely popular throughout Europe.

In every collection, Ann Demeulemeester’s preference for generating tension by means of contrast is evident. This A/W 2015 look illustrates how black and white  shades are recurring elements, as Demeulemeester communicates in terms of shadows and shapes, rather than colour and decoration.

7 days and counting… Haider Ackermann does not often emphasize prints, yet in this A/W 2015 collection, Ackermann showed both graphic check patterns and polka dots combined with fitted jackets in metallic tweed bouclé. This silhouette from MoMu’s collection exemplifies Ackermann’s signature intricate cuts and his mastery of colour.
