Not only did we have the distinct honor to be invited to the exclusive Raf Simons A/W 2013-2014 show, I also got to attend Walter Van Beirendonck’s presentation at Théatre du Châtelet in Paris.

The collection was titled “Shut Your Eyes To See”, a message that I choose to interpret as The Headmaster’s ploy on “Do you. The rest is noise”. I’ve always regarded WALTER as a fashion yoda.

WVB is never one to play it safe. Yes, he made beautiful fitted turtleneck sweaters. In metallic blue.

Yes, there are fabulous suits in this collection. But they come with Mirò-esque appliqué, Christmas decoration, Aladdin Sane lightning bolts, in a Lurex-looking fabric or a new and super fresh camo. (Streets! Are you watching?).

My favourite pieces of the show though were the bathrobes. My Man Ghostface Killah has been trying to get that look out there for a while now, and WU be praised,  this Fall (see also: Kim Jones for Louis Vuitton) this leisure wear item will finally become a luxurious outerwear staple.

Overall message : if you want to rock Walter Van Beirendonck S.Y.E.T.S collection? Start practising your pimp walk and then don it like a rockstar.
