IKEA Partners with Fashion Provocateur for Next Furniture Collaboration
The furniture group announces collaboration with controversial fashion designer Walter Van Beirendonck in newest design series
Furniture group IKEA has partnered with menswear designer Walter Van Beirendonck for a furniture design-series slated to launch in June 2016. The collaboration will feature a series of five prints that bring to life an original story created by the designer himself. The story entitled “Van De Mooi”—or “The Beautiful”—centers around five characters that live in a world in the clouds, tormented by the tears of the sun and the moon.
The Belgian designer is revered as one of The Antwerp Six, an elite group of Belgium’s most influential and radical fashion designers—including mentionable designers Dries Van Noten and Ann Demeulemeester—have influenced the fashion world and catwalks since the 1980s.
