Faye Wong, Ongaku to Hito「音楽と人」June 2001
What is it about Belgium that breeds such downright distinctive designers? Tip-toeing in the footsteps of art-house Antwerpians Demeulemeester, Margiela and Van Noten comes Jurgi Persoons, designer of feckless, fluid mens and womenswear that’s well worth a second glance. Sadly, unless you venture to the prestigious Louis store in Antwerp, you won’t be able to cast an appreciative eye over it, because no British buyer has snapped Persoons up – yet. With his gift for combining unusual fabrics (lace, tartan) and cutting a tailored dash, it won’t be long before the Bursteins and beyond are phoning through their orders.
