Walter van Beirendonck schließt Concept-Store

Modevisionär Walter van Beirendonck wird seinen Concept-Store in Antwerpen schließen. Der Grund: ein Disput mit der Hausverwaltung. Sie wollen die Miete um 250% erhöhen. Eine Schande, denn Beirendoncks Store war einzigartig, eine Pilgerstätte für die internationale Avantegarde. Beirendoncks Kommentar zur Schließung seines Stores:

Under these conditions it is no longer possible to work at the current premises in a profitable manner. Regrettable as this may be, it allows me to invest more time and energy in my own collection, which was recently applauded by the international press and buyers during fashion week in Paris. Besides, my function as creative director of the Fashion Department at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, there are a number of new challenges ahead of me. Finally, I am not ruling out the creation of a new store concept linked to my collection.”
