Thomas Van der Jeught is a Belgian fashiondesigner based in Vienna. His new collection combines strong and elegant aspects with great caution. Therefore, the design is a mixture that contains experimental, canvas-like pieces that coexist with deconstructed, minimalistic ones. One inspirational source for his design is the performance artist Marina Abramovicě. “What fascinates me is that her work revolves around conceptions of emotion and modes of aggression”.
In total, Sónar 2017 will feature more than 140 performances across 9 stages, including brand new shows from Justice, Arca (live) & Jesse Kanda (av), Soulwax, DJ Shadow, Nicolas Jaar, Moderat, Eric Prydz, De La Soul, Anderson.
“Essentials is the perfect blend of product and culture from a brand like Converse. Focussed around classic sportswear items, redefined for streetwear….it mirrors the story of Converse as a brand, born in sport, raised by the streets.”
For the Fall/Winter 2017 collection, Gildas Loaëc and Masaya Kuroki, co-founders and artistic directors of Maison Kitsuné, drew their inspiration from American pop culture and the aesthetic and creative energie of New York born, Paris based, artist William Klein.
