Mad as a hatter provides a great description for the Walter Van Beirendonck Spring/Summer 2013 Collection. The Belgian designer Walter Van Beirendonck is known for his quirky, avant-garde designs and this collection is no different. Taking a trip down the rabbit hole isn't hard with these incredibly eclectic designs.
The collection displayed a variety of shorts, jackets, and jumpers in an eclectic color palette of pastel-hued suits to classic black and whites. Though the clothing pieces have simple silhouettes, each outfit is complemented with an array of accessorizes that add the edge of panache, which Van Beirendonck is known for. The statement-making accessories include extravagantly over-the-top hats to over-the elbow evening gloves. The striking collection is formal wear suited for a tea party with the Queen of Hearts.
