Leather Artist Niels Peeraer

We were introduced to Niels Peeraer in 2011. We were even allowed to evaluate it.

The Belgian with an affinity for Japanese boys and ballet tutus showed his final show of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp.

For his master collection “GUESS TECHNOLOGY ISN’T READY FOR PANCAKE TELEPORTATION” Peerar received the highest grades from the jury. He was Walter van Beirendonck’s favorite. He won 5 awards, founded a label and moved to Paris.

In his A/W 2013 collection the specialist for playful leather handcraft proves that he is also capable of producing amazing leather caps, until now he was mostly known for handbags.

The leather caps by Peeraer evoke associations with British label Fleet Ilya. We find them fantastic and are wishing for a leather piece of art on our head.
