Walter Van Beirendonck
Beautifully interactive concept book. This is the innovative Imschoot published artist’s book come monograph on that bad boy of Belgian fashion, designer Walter Van Beirendonck and his “Wild and Lethal Trash” aesthetic. “Mutilate” documents more than ten years of over the top women’s and men’s collections and projects that reference everything from Godzilla to Orlan. Not surprisingly, this elaborately designed spiral-bound book is laden with die-cutting, embossing, and fold-out plates with photography by the likes of Jean-Baptiste Mondino, Carel Fonteyne and Juergen Teller.
