Beirendonck is renowned for his bold colour choices and this show was no exception - named 'Home Sweet Home', the designer himself explained in an interview that he took inspiration directly from the home that he shares with his wife in Antwerp. "It's my house, the interior of my house that I took inspiration from, very literally down to the vases", he stated, proving that inspiration can be found in any area by a creative mind.

In terms of my own personal favourites, it was hard to pick between a pair of flowing silk trousers speckled with light beige motifs and an opulent purple silk jacket printed with a vase of golden flowers which, presumably came straight from Beirendonck's own garden. Many designers speak of creating collections that are personal, yet few actually go so far as to splash their own wallpaper on a suit jacket - it is a strangely intimate move that allows us a peek inside the everyday environment of the outlandish designer and, ultimately, one which has resulted in one of his finest collections to date.
