FALL/WINTER 2021 MAIN COLLECTION
The new Bikkembergs Fall/Winter 2021 collection redesigns in a modern key some of the iconic masterpieces through a retrospective of the most significant seasons of the brand.
Since the beginning in the late 80’s, when Dirk Bikkembergs exploded out of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp marking a turning point in menswear, up to the present day, his expressions and signatures have become hallmarks of the brand which still remain present in the collection today.
Among the various details of the collection, first of all the classic 1.8cm top-stitching present in the development of a series of pieces in Cavalry wool twill. This type of garment construction allowed the brand to stand out from its competitors in the early years.
These pieces are complimented by slightly more formal garments, such as the single-breasted jacket in Punto Milano or more casual details that best reflect the robust workwear philosophy, overdyed gabardine shirts, a new cargo and colour-washed denims.
Knitwear is also important category to the brand’s heritage: in this collection its importance renewed due to the use of wool blends with other yarns for the definition of inlaid logos, colour-blocking and masculine ribbing.
This philosophy of reworking is applied also to the sportswear: the inspiration coming from various past seasons, touching on both the iconic and dynamic, mixing techniques, textures and styles.
Outerwear completes the collection with a combination of pieces designed for a contemporary lifestyle: padded nylon and neoprene jackets, wool coats with quilted nylon inserts, the classic leather biker jacket and lastly down jackets with a bold “pop” camouflage allover print.
