Don't be Beirendonckulous

This is a little retrospective of Walter Van Beirendonck, a Belguim born designer. The fashion world needs people like this bearded and albeit mad man.
He has a sense of humour and basically takes the piss out of the fashion industry, in a nice, colourful way. He takes a lot of inspiration from people or parts of people - including willies (always a winner). Beirendonck is mostly known for his menswear; it's a shame he doesn't do more womenswear. We want in on the willy action too. 
Here's some of his stuff you can buy and then some older stuff to look at.

Cant wait to see Primark's knock-offs. LOLZ.

The 'spare-tyre' gone right. 

Starting September 14 through February 2, 2012, Antwerp's MOMU fashion museum will host "Dream the World Awake," Van Beirendonck's first retrospective.
