`Guess technology isn't ready for pancake teleportation´

MoMu - Fashion Museum Antwerp

A collection by Niels Peeraer, MoMu Award winner 2011

The recipient of the 2011 MoMu Award was Niels Peeraer (°1989, Antwerp, Belgium).

His graduate collection was entitled `Guess technology isn’t ready for pancake teleportation´.

This exhibit looks into the collection's creation process as well as Niels' creation process.

The collection consists of couture-like tweed silhouettes, handmade leather armour, accessories and clothes, Japanese wooden sandals, all in candy-coloured pastels.

Niels Peeraer: “The collection is about a boy who has an imaginary boyfriend. Everyday, he prepares himself to get married.

This, together with the love for his armour, video games and his grandmother’s couture jackets, shapes his cute wardrobe.

As the basis for my collection, I chose this diary entry from my main character, the silhouettes, graphic work and scenography for the MoMu gallery are based on this passage:…

`I’m confused, I’m sitting here on the sofa, the heart my boyfriend drew on the mirror is still there, my heart in a rice cooker.…

... I think I’ll marry him again at lunch. My cat is sleeping but it’s already been 4 days. Well, I have to go to the supermarket anyway. Guess technology isn’t ready for pancake teleportation´.”

Niels Peeraer has established a Paris based leather accessories brand, combining a strong and personal aesthetic with a high level of craftsmanship. -there is no limited to cuteness-

Meanwhile the collection is being stocked in over 50 stockists worldwide, including prestigious locations like Galeries Lafayette, 10 Corso Como, Isetan, Opening Ceremony, Luisa Via Roma, I.T, etc.

Every year, MoMu awards a prize to one of the graduating Master students of the Fashion Department of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp: originality, a strong visual language and craftsmanship are key ingredients for a collection to win a prize.

The MoMu Award gives a single student the opportunity to present his or her collection in an exhibition at the MoMu Gallery.
