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 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.
Special thanks to Niels Peeraer, Dirk Alexander and Catwalkpictures.
