ANTOINE PETERS F/W 0809 COLLECTION
‘FAT PEOPLE ARE HARDER TO KIDNAP!’
Antoine Peters is best known for his “A sweater for the world project, a sweater with the goal to bring the world together – presented his label for the third time at the Amsterdam International Fashion Week.
Antoine: “The collection actually started from the humour-full title that I once wrote down and the simple yet complex given of the challenge to amalgamate a small T-shirt with a 10XL T-shirt, with a renewing silhouette and elegance as the result.”
Antoine: “I love to play with extremes and proportions in material, print, silhouette and concept. By mixing or even amalgamate these extremes I try to create something new and fresh. For this collection it resulted in the ancient question ‘thick versus thin’. My whole presentation pleads for being fat, but with a slightly ironical tone beneath the surface. In fact I do not answer on this question, but it did result in a small fashion party!”
